Apacer and ASUS Cloud decided to collaborate to improve data security for remote device management in industrial applications, particularly smart factories. ASUS Cloud and Apacer worked together to help a major client – a provider of independent semiconductor assembling and test manufacturing services, with its headquarters in Taiwan. The client wanted to improve on-site disaster recovery under pandemic conditions, and also had concerns about the threats posed by hackers and ransomware attacks. So our engineers came together to integrate Apacer’s CoreSnapshot technology for SSDs into ASUS Cloud’s OmniStor storage and management platform. Our shared goal was to reduce manpower and management costs while also creating greater operation efficiency.
Speaking of the project, Apacer’s Sales and Marketing Center VP Cindy Huang remarked, “CoreSnapshot is a system disaster’s savior. It’s highly compatible with all operating systems, and can backup and subsequently recover not only an OS but also all data on an SSD. But what’s most impressive is that it can carry out the entire recovery process in just one second. This minimizes any downtime associated with hacker intrusions and lets a smart factory get back up and running quickly.”
Discussing the OmniStor platform, Wu Hanzhang, general manager of ASUS Cloud, noted that “ASUS Cloud have been committed to developing cloud-native data protection services as the core of our development, creating a secure, efficient and flexible tool for enterprise digital governance and transformation. This time, our OT solutions are specially tailored for the manufacturing industry. We have successfully integrated Apacer's exclusive patented CoreSnapshot 1-second backup and recovery SSD technology into our OmniStor enterprise storage cloud platform to enhance digital resilience.”
The first client that Apacer and ASUS Cloud provided with our integrated solution ran some punishing system shock tests. But the system passed with flying colors, and the client was very pleased with the results. So we realized that we needed to extend access to this technology to the global market to help improve production flow for more customers. With that in mind, Apacer and ASUS Cloud will be co-presenting a Webinar titled “Industrial IoT ICT + OT Manufacturing Solution: Accelerating the Implementation of Smart Manufacturing” on June 9, 2022 at 16:00 (UTC/GMT +8:00). This will be a convenient way for customers to learn more about our collaboration.
