High Performance Computing* for Business Impact

The Plethora IIoT Solution means a lower-cost hardware deployment, able

to compute at optimal speed for obtaining Real-Time responses (45 ms to
100 μs). The computing environment set up, distributed in HPC nodes (US
patent pending) means getting actionable insights in the required time
frame, as the HPC nodes make it possible to reuse overall, installed
computing capacity. Plethora IIoT provides a solution with computing
capacity distributed in HPC nodes synchronized at 70 ns, with all the
equipment working as a single system.
