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)
- All-in-one module (Beckhoff CX2043)
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.
All-in-one module – Beckhoff CX2043
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.
