The case for smarter energy & utilities infrastructure

Energy and utilities have never been more coveted than they are right now. And demand for more sustainable and cost-effective ways to extract, manage and use the world's resources means that the industry is innovating at a rapid rate. Applications for predictive analytics and maintenance, surveillance, asset tracking, emissions testing, field management, employee safety, video analytics and machine learning are running across distributed environments that have traditionally been a reason for information delays, silos of information, and reactive operations. A single oil well can generate 10TB of data a day and relies heavily on local processing power. The cost of a day's downtime at sites like these can cost tens of millions of US dollars.

A new type of distributed and centrally managed infrastructure is required that can support all these new applications without costing the earth.

Support a mix of applications

Deploy run and manage all of your applications through the Sunlight marketplace - whether legacy VM-based, Kubernetes or container based.

Continuous operations

Intermittent WAN connections can cause business interruption. Sunlight offers continuous business operations (even when WAN fails) with high availability, data protection and disconnected running.

Central management

Sunlight gives you all the infrastructure services you need in one simple bundle that can be installed in less than 10 minutes and managed remotely. Problems can be fixed quickly without requiring a truck roll.

Sites have limited space, power and cooling - so the solution needs to be small, rugged and work in the harshest of environments..

Easy consolidation

Consolidate your applications running across hundreds or thousands of remote locations to a single highly reliable and centrally remotely manageable, low cost system.
