Docker - higher flexibility and faster deployment of applications with container technology
Many iTAC products and solutions are
based on Docker's latest container technology. Docker is an open source software that was released by dotCloud in March 2013.
With Docker, applications can be isolated in
containers through operating system virtualization. This simplifies the
provision of applications because containers that include all the necessary
packages can be easily transferred and installed as files. Containers ensure
the separation and management of resources on a computer e.g. system tools,
In November 2006 iTAC.MES.Suite became the first MES system worldwide to receive the client/server certificate for the MES interfaces OPC Data Access 2.0 and 3.0. Since 2007 iTAC has offered the OPC UA interface standard for the integration of its iTAC.MES.Suite.
The use of OPC Unified Architecture in MES projects simplifies the integration of MES systems in the automation systems thereby enabling the creation of simpler and more flexible systems.
One of the most important innovations of OPC Unified Architecture is the platform-independent implementation of its applications. The direct and standardized exchange of data between the control systems and the MES is now possible.
An Oracle database is used by default in iTAC.MES.Suite. Performance – reliability – platform independence: Oracle traditionally uses open standards and platforms such as Unix and Java for its entire product range.
A further reason for choosing Oracle is the fact that Oracle databases are platform-independent.
In addition, ITAC is a member of DOAG (Deutsche Oracle Anwendergruppe - German Oracle User Group), the only interest group for users of Oracle products in Germany. The group is independent of Oracle Deutschland GmbH both financially and legally. The objective of DOAG is to exchange information and knowledge about the use, handling and experiences with Oracle products and to act as a lobby for users vis-à-vis the producer.
iTAC Products and iTAC.MES.Suite based on Internet technologies (JAVA). The use of Java ensures that iTAC.MES.Suite (server and client) runs on almost all platforms.
