All environmental calculations are carried out in a ReportLoq server. The server can be:
- Placed on own ground – ReportLoq+
- In Olicem’s data centre – ReportLoq Cloud
- A combination of both – ReportLoq+ Cloud
The server provided can be of the following types:
- Rack server (Default: Dell)
- Virtual server (OVA image)
- Beckhoff IPC C6920 (incl. Embedded data collector)
The supplied rack server comes with redundant disks with a hot spare (RAID 1 + 1). This means that you have an extra disk that quickly takes over in the event of a failure on one of the primary disks. The server also has redundant power supplies.
Pros: Redundancy on the hardware that usually fails in a server.
When selecting a virtual server, an OVA image comes with Windows Server edition and ReportLoq software for insertion into an existing data center.
Benefits: Ability to use existing data center with patching, backup, failover and monitoring.
Beckhoff IPC C6920
The IPC is an Industrial PC provided by Beckhoff which combines the ReportLoq server with the data collector into one piece of hardware.
Advantages: Lower cost due to less hardware. Easy to apply to installations without server room, since the IPC sits directly in the equipment board.
