Data Creates Both Revenue Opportunities and Technical Challenges for Industrial Manufacturers | Your money
HELSINKI, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The exponential growth of data generated in today’s modern smart manufacturing operations presents great opportunities for these companies, but also enormous challenges in how to capture, store and save this data. This market analysis is featured in a new white paper from Tuxera, the leading provider of quality assured products data storage management software and networking technologies.
In the newspaper, ” Data Trends in the Smart Manufacturing Industry and IIoT Markets: Implications for the Storage Stack“, Tuxera examines the problems of modern real-time data workloads, the reliability of storage systems – including the reasons why they fail and the costs of failure – and the selection of operating systems and optimal hardware platforms in the modern industrial and automation markets.
The deployment of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices, coupled with the use of traditional devices such as sensors, motion controllers and programmable logic controllers, means that manufacturing companies are inundated with data .
“This data has great financial value, both for improving operational efficiency and for developing new business areas,” said the author of the article, Eva Rio, chief product officer at Tuxera. “However, data is worthless if it is unreliable – partial or corrupt data can be worse than no data at all – and can be safely stored and accessed when needed.”
Companies can use smart manufacturing data for cost-effective internal improvements, such as operational intelligence and predictive maintenance, or to create new external revenue streams. However, data comes from a wide range of sources and needs to be stored and processed.
“This leads to several significant challenges within the storage stack,” writes Rio, including:
Continuous and write-heavy workloadsFlash lifetime and wear-out issuesResource-constrained environmentsReal-time operationsFast recovery from shutdownInteroperabilityFault tolerance
This means that reliability is crucial for embedded devices in the smart manufacturing industry. Field failures and recalls cause downtime, with an estimated cost across industries of $260,000 per hour, the Tuxera newspaper reports. These failures can also lead to the loss of critical data and damage the reputation of the company – immeasurable costs.
For these reasons, smart manufacturing companies need to think carefully about their choices of storage media and flash and file system management software. Hardware and software must work together to provide optimal environments for data, emphasizing system integrity to maximize device life, minimizing memory wear and tear issues, and writing amplification and reducing the need for leveling wear.
“Storage systems must be able to balance the need for fault tolerance and recovery with performance, write-heavy workloads, and interoperability needs,” Rio wrote.
