The Transition from Centralized to Distributed System Field Configuration in Industrial PC

In terms of industrial computing field configurations, system integrators and end users prefer distributed systems over centralized systems, which can be seen in almost every application, especially in recent years. The transition brings advantages in many aspects and the following contents introduce them and provide real a case study.

In brief, the trend is that users deploy more edge systems for different functions respectively, to replace only one high-performance system for all the workloads. Moreover, utilizing edge
systems bring countless advantages including minimizing latency, bandwidth efficiency, redundancy, and even deploying AI at the edge.

This whitepaper discusses:

  • Advantages of Distributed Systems in Field Configuration
  • Challenges of Centralized Systems: Upgrades and Accidental Failures
  • A Case Study of Distributed Systems
