DeltaV™ Virtual Studio v2.3 integrated application provides easy-to-use solution for virtualized control systems; increased options for system availability and disaster recovery 

AUSTIN, TEXAS (October 15, 2014) — With the release of DeltaV Virtual Studio v2.3, Emerson expands the virtualization capabilities in the DeltaV distributed control system (DCS) for easy implementation and management of on-line production and off-line development, test and training systems.

While many large manufacturing companies have used virtualization for years in their IT departments, DeltaV Virtual Studio is designed specifically for process control systems, with a workflow and feature set that is intuitive and familiar to automation engineers. Prebuilt virtual machine templates enable easy virtual machine creation without software installation. Every virtual machine created comes with all standard DeltaV system operating settings and network connections pre-defined to ensure consistent, error-free configuration and implementation.

The latest DeltaV Virtual Studio release also includes enhanced high availability and disaster recovery options. Various architecture and hardware solutions let facility managers pick the level of availability their system needs in response to any possible disruptive event. Also new in DeltaV Virtual Studio v2.3 is the ability to live migrate critical applications from affected hardware to minimize downtime during system maintenance or hardware upgrades.

“Our customers recognize the benefits virtualization offers for workstation consolidation and ease of system maintenance,” said Emerson’s chief strategic officer Peter Zornio, “but they need those benefits without added complexity and with little or no system downtime. With DeltaV Virtual Studio, they can quickly, easily create virtual DeltaV workstations without the complexity that used to require a specialist.”
