  • Patent number: 11474875
    Abstract: A system for dynamically load-balancing at least one redistribution element across a group of computing resources that facilitates at least an aspect of an Industrial Execution Process in an M:N working configuration is illustrated.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: August 11, 2021
    Date of Patent: October 18, 2022
    Assignee: Schneider Electric Systems USA, Inc.
    Inventors: Raja Ramana Macha, Andrew Lee David Kling, Frans Middeldorp, Nestor Jesus Camino, Jr., James Gerard Luth, James P. McIntyre
  • Publication number: 20210373969
    Abstract: In a Boundaryless Control High Availability (“BCHA”) system (e.g., industrial control system) comprising multiple computing resources (or computational engines) running on multiple machines, technology for computing in real time the overall system availability based upon the capabilities/characteristics of the available computing resources, applications to execute and the distribution of the applications across those resources is disclosed. In some embodiments, the disclosed technology can dynamically manage, coordinate recommend certain actions to system operators to maintain availability of the overall system at a desired level. High Availability features may be implemented across a variety of different computing resources distributed across various aspects of a BCHA system and/or computing resources. Two example implementations of BCHA systems described involve an M:N working configuration and M:N+R working configuration.
