One of the principle advantages of virtualization is the reduction in cost of ownership, realized in maintenance costs and the cost of hardware upgrades. This is due, in large part, because the upgraded hardware is a shared resource utilized by every virtual workstation and file server on the network.
With a virtual environment relying upon shared hardware for all operations, a hardware fault could undoubtedly cause an interruption if not properly setup to handle such a fault. The processors and memory in the ENCO1s work in lockstep to provide zero-interruption should the hardware fail or betaken offline for routine maintenance. This mitigates the risk of being off-the-air on account of a hardware glitch or a complete failure. In addition to lockstepped CPUs providing fault tolerance to the virtual system, multipath I/O provides a redundant connection to your AoIP and thin client networks.
“On a purely operational level, ENCO1 eliminated the performance issues we were having with keyboard, mouse and touchscreen responsiveness across the KVM architecture,” said Greg Armstrong, Director of Engineering for WBNS-AM-FM, RadiOhio. “But the beauty of what ENCO1 offers is complete duplication of our automation operation across the entire facility, due to a fully redundant, fault-tolerant server. And we envision a considerable long-term cost savings given the longer life span and lower replacement costs of a thin client versus hardware-based workstations. ENCO appears to be well ahead of the curve in terms of virtualizing radio automation.”
The initial deployment of a virtual system is easier than deployment of traditional workstations, especially when integrating with an existing AoIP network. Furthermore, when station personnel decide it is time to upgrade the hardware, the upgrades can be done quickly and with less downtime.
