- Deploy multiple sets of PTC ThingWorx, Kepware Server, and Kepware Edge on VMs on a three-node VxRail cluster.
- Develop a plan and service level priorities for various edge devices. Factors to consider are user and workflow profiles, business importance and impact, performance, management and data protection requirements, and interdependencies, among other things.
- Based on the service level plans, identify the PTC application stack that is most suitable for these edge workflows and assign appropriate compute, network, and storage resources to these VMs to meet or exceed the service level requirements.
- Based on the service level, capacity, resiliency, backup or recovery, and performance requirements of the applications and devices, PTC ThingWorx persistent providers (databases) can also be deployed in specific datastores that meet the service level requirements.
By creating an appropriate service level plan and assigning proper resources to PTC application stack components, the edge solution results in optimal performance and improves overall effectiveness.
