Honeywell HIVE Technology Centralizes IT Infrastructure

February 10, 2020 / Chemical Processing Staff

Honeywell releases Experion PKS IT Highly Integrated Virtual Environment (HIVE), a new technology that reportedly centralizes up to 80% of IT infrastructure used in project engineering. This allows industrial manufacturers to lower project delivery and lifecycle costs, better leverage skills and drive consistent physical and cybersecurity management, according to the company. Experion PKS IT HIVE untethers industrial enterprises from running IT workloads where their controllers are located – giving them the freedom and flexibility to run workloads on-site, at a remote data center or a combination of both. By centralizing IT infrastructure and reducing the amount of networking and compute resources required to run on-site, customers can reduce maintenance, refresh costs and free their process control engineers from time-consuming administration to focus on higher-value activities including process optimization, according to the company.  Centralization reportedly allows customers to eliminate unused computing infrastructure, benefit from the latest virtualization technology and have experts mitigate cybersecurity risk with established protocols.
