Power Generation Equipment Upgrades by Turbine Technology Services Contribute to Improved Performance


Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) September 17, 2013

Turbine Technology Services Corporation (TTS), a full-service gas turbine engineering services firm based in Orlando, Florida is playing a critical role in the upgrade of power generation equipment worldwide by modernizing control systems’ hardware and software to improve the operational performance of gas turbines.

It has been almost 30 years since microprocessor-based control systems were introduced in the power generation industry and—as is typical with electronics—the time to effective obsolescence of these systems has been relatively short. Advances in reliability, capability, flexibility and in the ease of use have been significant over this period.

Case in point, much of the turbine control system HMI and operator interface equipment that was installed in the 90’s and early 2000’s have become obsolete by current industry standards, prompting gas turbine operators to seek upgrade/migration advice from trusted global power engineering providers such as TTS.

In response to these industry challenges, TTS now offers GE gas turbine operators complete HMI upgrade solutions to bring these operator interface systems up to current standards.

The TTS solution is based on Industrial Turbine Service’s Turbine Monitoring System (TMOS) software, an established industry product which has been successfully applied around the world in the replacement of the original GE (I) and (HMI) product line.

These HMI upgrades from TTS provide an improved graphical interface that retains the features of the original operator interface product while adding powerful new capabilities and features including improved unit data acquisition, storage and analysis. These upgrades also provide innovative solutions to the system architecture and communication limitations imposed by the original systems.

“Aging, obsolete equipment increases the risk of failure, potentially leaving turbine operators unable to run or monitor their units,” said Pat Begley, VP of Sales for Europe, the Middle East and Asia at TTS. “HMI upgrades are a very cost effective solution for this particular problem.”

Over the years, TTS has performed numerous HMI upgrades for power generation customers, giving the company a unique insight and experience to address the needs of the industry—from system design and network architecture to hardware installation.

HMI upgrades from TTS are featured in September’s edition of Power Magazine and can be downloaded following this link: http://www.powermag.com/considerations-when-upgrading-gas-turbine-hmis/.

Globanet Upgrades Its Email Migration Software GEM

Los Angeles, CA; New York, NY (PRWEB) March 25, 2010

Globanet (http://www.globanet.com), a global leader in specialized software for data migration, announces its recent upgrades to GEM. The products updated version expands on its existing functionality by supporting new platforms for data migration into Symantecs Enterprise Vault. New platforms and enhancements include Tumbleweed Communications (now Axway), advanced chain-of-custody reporting, and server agent architecture for secured transmission of data.

Using the Globanet Email Migrator (GEM), clients are able to consolidate stored email data into Enterprise Vault and retire their previous archiving systems. Once consolidated, clients only have to maintain the database containing their email correspondence which is regulated by SEC compliance rules. Concerns regarding potential loss of data integrity during a migration keep organizations from abandoning their existing systems. GEM eliminates those risks by enabling administrators to migrate data while maintaining chain of custody. In addition, GEM enhances Enterprise Vault's existing functionality for organizations already using Enterprise Vault.

Recently, GEM was used at a multi-national financial firm to decommission Tumbleweed and yet retain supervisory data that was in the Tumbleweed system. Tumbleweed is a program that was used to capture a firms inbound and outbound email correspondence. The email messages were subject to compliance review and contained supervisory annotations from compliance officers who had commented on the events that had transpired and documented in emails of monitored individuals. In order for the firm to comply with SEC Rule 17a-4, it was required to retain the messages stored by Tumbleweed as well as the supervisory data when decommissioning the system. The firm decided to consolidate the stored email data by leveraging Globanets product GEM which proved to be a complete solution.

GEM is unique in its capability to decommission legacy archiving systems such as Tumbleweed and give stakeholders peace of mind that all information including supervisory commentary about archived messages are safely retained during migration and thus compliance with SEC regulations maintained, said Sevag Ajemian, President of Globanet. One of our recent projects with a multi-national financial firm exemplifies this ability of GEM and really pushes Globanet to the forefront of the IT industry when it comes to dealing with data archives effectively. GEM has been largely successful and will continue to be improved upon as new technologies are developed.

GEM is an application developed by Globanet to provide seamless migration of data from a variety of information sources into Symantec Enterprise Vault. It transfers email data from several platforms such as Iron Mountain Email Management, Zantaz Digital Safe, GFI MailArchiver, AXS-One (for DXL file migration), and now Tumbleweed Communications and EMC (Legato) EmailXtender. GEM has the ability to migrate email archives into Enterprise Vault (EV), migrate EV data across hardware, migrate between different EV sites, reprocess existing data archived in earlier versions of EV allowing for cost savings on storage, and repatriate email data from hosting providers.

“The Ansel Adams Gallery Upgrades to Konect Elite + Windows Server 2008 R2 with Ease

Calgary, AB (PRWEB) June 10, 2013

Konect software was an integral part of the solution to simplify and cut administrative costs. Migrating from our legacy system cut our annual administrative overheads by more than 75%. Konect also enabled us to use our systems remotely, which allows us to hire the optimally skilled (high, mid, low as needed) administrative employees where they are, rather than drawing from a limited pool (in terms of size and range of skills) in a remote, rural area. Matthew Adams, President

THE CHALLENGE

The Ansel Adams Gallery has been in business under the same family ownership since 1902. What started as a painters studio is now a destination for photographers and aficionados of Ansel Adams worldwide.

Operating out of Yosemite National Park, CA, the client has an interesting combination of requirements: they have a complex POS system that needs to be onsite, while NPS (National Park Service) requires that administrative functions be housed outside the national park. The client also has many multi-site workers the website is administered remotely, general administration is done remotely, accounting and bookkeeping are administered remotely, and high end art sales operates remotely.

The client had a VPN connection in place, which had created several complexities: regular communications interruptions, a much slower connection to workers at remote locations due to large amounts of data being pulled across the network, and the POS and accounting software were recommended to be on same server for optimal performance, which wasnt possible with that delivery model. It soon became clear that they needed a more robust solution that was able to handle all of these requirements, and yet still be simple to use and manage.

THE SOLUTION

Back in April 2008, The Ansel Adams Gallery purchased Konect Elite when migrating from UNIX

JaguarPC Web Host Completes Server Hardware Upgrades and Replaces Backup Management Systems

JaguarPC Web Host Completes Server Hardware Upgrades and Replaces Backup Management Systems










Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 1, 2007

JaguarPC, a leading provider of end-to-end web hosting solutions, has completed the second phase to replace all its server hardware. The process which began last year replaced all servers that had single or dual processors with one core to the new AMD dual core CPU servers. In addition, the web host has completed testing and begun implementing a new enterprise backup management system that will increase backup speed and performance for its clients.

The new dual core servers also have significant upgrades to the amount of RAM as well as newer RAID disk arrays across all the systems which have greatly improved redundancy and access speeds. All accounts with JaguarPC will be on the same hardware platform, making plan upgrade migrations even easier. Initial results of the completed server upgrades show an improvement in services loading time on the network and near 100% uptime. Patch management is also easier, leading to quicker and more frequent updates.

JaguarPC is also adding a new enterprise backup management system after initial testing showed greatly improved reliability and performance. The backup system uses a new methodology that reduces the loads of the servers being backed up which removes the dreaded nightly slowdown of servers during the backup process, and also helps eliminate incomplete backups. Backups will also be faster, more accurate, less burdensome to the servers and more reliable. The third phase of the upgrade process of both hardware and backup systems will completed in the next 60 days.

"In a market where every provider is moving towards the cheapest alternatives possible, this is part of our plan to rather focus on delivering quality web services," says Greg Landis, chief executive officer of JaguarPC. "With other competitive hosting companies, companies may outgrow the available services and need to migrate to a completely different web host. Conversely, a company can start small with our basic plan and seamlessly upgrade with us through the years of growth."

"We posted a record year in 2006 and are on track to beat that by a wide margin for 2007," continued Landis. "JaguarPC will continue to focus on delivering quality and value in this price-competitive market."

About JaguarPC

JaguarPC, based in Houston Texas and owned by Jaguar Technologies LLC Hosting, provides high-quality Internet hosting solutions to small and medium-sized businesses, government agencies, prominent individuals and non-profit organizations worldwide.
