Northern Marine modernises critical fleet IT systems with Scale Computing HyperCore Edge

Northern Marine modernises critical fleet IT systems with Scale Computing HyperCore Edge

Scale Computing implemented HyperCore Edge for Northern Marine to minimise downtime, increase productivity, lower TCO, maintain continuous operations all with no onboard IT personnel. Computing at the Edge with Scale Computing.

Northern Maine operate a diverse fleet of tankers, ferries and offshore assets.

They required critical applications for crew management, cargo management, accounting, security, and maintenance systems.

Internet connectivity is highly intermittent onboard vessels and there is no IT personnel.

Northern Marine deployed Scale Computing HyperCore clusters to run their operations while at sea.


The issues:

  • Upgrade existing IT infrastructure on board vessels.
  • Satellite connectivity.
  • No IT personnel onboard vessels.
  • Servers need to remain online.
  • Minimal downtime.
  • Reduce en route repairs and maintenance.
  • Regulatory requirements for their industry.


The solution:

  • Deploy Scale Computing HyperCore.
  • Deploy server cluster for zero downtime.
  • Intelligent automations.
  • Self-healing without a central brain or IT intervention.
  • Increased productivity.
  • Lower TCO.
  • Scalability of modular cluster architecture.


Results:

  • Decreased complexity.
  • Integrated platform.
  • Easy to install.
  • Zero downtime and continuous operation.
  • Increased resiliency and uptime.
  • Self-healing reduced hands on maintenance.
