Trihedral VTScada software is said to make complex infrastructure easy to configure and allows systems to easily scale from two to more than 2 million I/O. VTScada helps to eliminate downtime by supporting redundant servers with automatic failover. A native enterprise historian supports bi-directional synchronization across all servers to keep data safe. Advanced version control is part of every application. It received 2021 Engineers’ Choice recognition in the Software – HMI Software category. Courtesy: Trihedral
