Oerlikon Manmade Fibers Segment, a market leader in manmade fibre filament spinning systems, has launched the ‘Datacenter in a box’ at the OpenStack Summit, which is being held from November 13-15, 2018, in Berlin, Germany. It is a three-day conference for IT business leaders, cloud operators, and developers covering the open infrastructure landscape.

The compact datacenter works on the basis of the open operating system OpenStack, which enables virtual computing in a secure private cloud environment. Externally, the datacenter looks unspectacular: The box contains standard hardware such as server rack, network components, batteries for reliability, monitoring sensors, and a few more things. But what counts are the inner values. The Open Source software OpenStack consists of many different services and allows the virtualisation of a large pool of computing, storage, and network resources in a flexible, scalable private cloud. Virtual operation reduces costs and simplifies configuration, adaptation and expansion of the IT infrastructure today and tomorrow, according to Oerlikon.

On the other hand, long-cherished wishes for high data protection are fulfilled, because a private cloud maintains secure, highly encrypted data connections away from the World Wide Web.

The IT architecture also guarantees infrastructure management without downtime, the system and virus protection are automatically kept up to date at all times. Another major advantage is the scalability of the hardware and software, which can be adapted to changing requirements.

With these trump cards and a project example, the Group segment confidently presented itself to a genuine specialist audience at the summit. Oerlikon Manmade Fibers Segment CEO Georg Stausberg presented the customer installation at Century Synthetic Fibre Corporation, which supplies many well-known sporting goods manufacturers. The Vietnamese producer of high-quality yarns not only uses the new datacenter, but also the connection to the new ‘Common Service Platform (CSP)’ of the Oerlikon Manmade Fibers Segment as well as an innovative new dashboard solution in prototype status. In this case, the digital instrument panel supports employee communication during shift changes in the yarn factory and introduces agile methods into the work process. The board visualises the progress of central key figures and operating parameters from the current production process. Based on this, the employees of the successive shifts can now exchange important process and quality information and possible instructions for action within a few minutes in a structured stand-up meeting.

The fixed connection to the CSP of the Oerlikon Manmade Fibers Segment plays a pioneering role in such solutions. This enables services and software updates to be provided smoothly, quickly, and automatically. In this way, service applications can transform collected data into instructions or automated commands to secure and improve processes. For example, the secure availability of management solutions such as the Plant Operation Center (POC) for process monitoring can be increased and possible errors can be rectified very quickly. (GK)
