DN2K's Virtual Operations Center Provides Secondary Operation Center for Mission-Critical Businesses
April 16, 2012
In an effort to facilitate continuous operations for the for critical business and industrial systems, DN2K, a provider of cloud-based data monitoring platform, introduced Virtual Operations Center (VOC) capability. The VOC can double as a secondary operations center with redundant capability for business continuation at the times of any kind of disaster.
This cloud based secondary operation center that does away with the need for duplicate hardware can be an ideal solution for the company’s security, SCADA and industrial control customers, DN2K noted in a press release.
The new cloud-based VOC functionality allows customers to maintain a secondary operations center for redundant capability. The solution is able to control complex systems from multiple sources, or what is known as 'islands of technology', securely on smartphones, mobile pads or desktop computers and ensures interim or fulltime operations without disruption.
Companies use hundreds of networks and devices around the world, all from different manufacturers. By providing an aggregated view, DN2K VOC helps bridge the islands of technology and provides a common operational picture of systems from different manufacturers, DN2K explained. This controlling and viewing of disparate systems happen in real time.
The HTML5-based solution allows for cross-platform flexibility and can extend the functionality, user interface and controls of operational assets, servers/networks, M2M, Databases, SCADA and industrial control systems to secure mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
“The DN2K approach is both powerful and unique. The capability of maintaining continuous operations from a redundant location, without the need for duplicate hardware is of great use to our security, SCADA and industrial control customers,” President of RFIP, Inc. and former Information Technology Director for the City of Oklahoma City Mark Meier noted in a statement.
“Companies have hundreds of networks and devices around the world, all from different manufacturers. The DN2K VOC solution allows them to have aggregated control from a secondary virtual location in case of an event that might normally disrupt operations. Customers get this continuity of operations while avoiding the expense of duplicating their hardware and software systems,” Susan Lambert, president and COO of DN2K explained in a statement.
Earlier this year, DN2K received significant funding from a group of private investors to help with growth and expansion into global oil and gas, agriculture, smart grid and electric power industries.
