Most of us are familiar with cloud technology and use it in our everyday lives as convenient online storage for photos, videos, apps, and documents. Microsoft OneDrive® and Apple iCloud® are a couple well-known cloud storage platforms that are readily available and easily accessible from phones and computers anytime we need to store or retrieve info. For most, that’s where the technology ends. But in fact, cloud technology offers much more than just a storage solution and industrial cloud platforms, like StrideLinx, have tapped into that.
First and foremost, StrideLinx provides secure connections to remote machines that can be accessed anytime from anywhere. StrideLinx utilizes VPN technology, router firewalls, outgoing machine connections, and the latest encryption methods to keep both machines and data protected. With the StrideLinx cloud’s secure remote access feature, you can safely program, monitor, and/or troubleshoot machines in real time using the live connection from the cloud platform to the machine. Cloud data storage is of course an option with StrideLinx, but StrideLinx also provides a wealth of data visualization options in the platform including charts, graphs, tables, and many other customizable data widgets for clean, easily understandable data presentations.
Below is a collection of articles, library posts, whitepapers, and videos that explain the many benefits of VPN routers, cloud networking, the secure StrideLinx cloud platform and recent improvements made to it. The collection also discusses how this technology, and the insight it provides, can be used to reduce downtime, and improve machine performance.
