Virtualization for Industrial Workstations

Many facilities still run Rockwell Automation equipment installed decades ago. These controllers and HMIs have more longevity than the computers used to program and maintain them. Using older computers carries a calculated risk of spontaneous hardware failure, lost support, virus susceptibility, and downtime. Many customers today are moving towards virtualizing their legacy systems, and their current programming workstations. Werner Electric Supply is dedicated to making your company’s transition to virtualized workstations as smooth as possible.

Topics Include:

  • Overview and virtualization options
  • Virtual networking
  • Going online with Rockwell Automation controllers
  • Installing Rockwell Automation software
  • Using peripherals
  • Creating a virtual machine

*This class will focus on virtualizing maintenance and design workstations. Server and data center virtualization (i.e. thin clients, ESXi, etc) are not a primary focus, however the instructor may touch on these.
