All environmental calculations are performed in a ReportLoq server. The server can be:
- Located on own plot – ReportLoq +
- In Olicem’s data center – ReportLoq + Pure Cloud
- A combination of both – ReportLoq + Cloud
The supplied server 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 hotspare (RAID 1 + 1). This means that you have an extra disk which quickly takes over in the event of a fault on one of the primary disks. The server also has redundant power supplies.
Pros : Redundancy on the hardware that most often fails in a server.
When selecting a virtual server, an OVA image is provided with Windows Server edition and ReportLoq software for insertion into existing data centers.
Advantages : Possibility of using 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 price due to less hardware. Easy to use on installations without server space, as IPC sits directly in the board with equipment.
