New virtual appliance provides entry point for small gas processors
Small-scale gas processors seeking to virtualize smaller applications now have a solution that is sized for them. The new VersaVirtual appliance from Rockwell Automation provides all the computing, networking and storage capabilities needed to deploy and maintain up to 15 virtual machines in one ready-to-use appliance.
The VersaVirtual appliance helps save time and money in your downstream oil and gas operations for application virtualization in two key ways.
First, it avoids the potential pitfalls of a do-it-yourself virtualized architecture. Homegrown solutions can take weeks to deploy and require working with multiple vendors. The pre-engineered VersaVirtual appliance arrives at your process site preconfigured, where it can be deployed in mere hours. And instead of dealing with multiple vendors, VersaVirtual appliance users have one number to call for support.
VersaVirtual has a scaled down cost and complexity for smaller applications that can break down barriers to virtualization for gas processing companies that are challenged by solution complexity, lack of skills or resources, and infrastructure costs.
The VersaVirtual appliance comes with one-year remote monitoring and administration so that users receive around-the-clock system monitoring to help prevent downtime. Customers will also receive support from certified IT/OT professionals who have an average response time of three minutes to help resolve technical issues.
GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
Following on the heels of the highly successful GasPro 2.0 Webcast Symposium in October 2018, the second GasPro Webcast Symposium 2.0 will take place on October 24, 2019.
The 2019 web event will gather experts in the fields of LNG, gas processing, and gas transport/distribution to share their operations expertise, engineering and design solutions, and technology advances and trends with our audience.
Attendees will learn about technology and operational solutions and deployments in a number of areas: plant design and expansion, construction, NGL production, optimization, sulfur removal, marine operations and separation technology.
