The ztC Edge platform also is easily managed, featuring a built-in virtualization and availability layer, automated data protection and application recovery, self-protecting and self-monitoring capabilities, and operational interoperability – enabling partners and customers to automate processes, reduce user errors, and save time. Its secure cloud-based file repository, Stratus Cloud, allows ztC Edge system preference templates and profiles to be safely transmitted, stored, and retrieved across multiple assets, operations, and locations. Additionally, ztC Edge offers 64 GB memory capacity and performance to support a broad range of data and memory-intensive workloads, giving customers choice and flexibility while consolidating multiple applications on a single platform – further saving costs and increasing agility.

Why We Do It
