In a collaborative effort, Software Defined Automation (SDA) and FLECS Technologies are proud to announce a Docker-based app designed to simplify secure remote access in the industrial automation sector.

Streamlining the Gateway Setup Experience

A Gateway is a network device that resides between industrial control devices and SDA’s cloud infrastructure. Traditionally, setting up Gateways has involved specific hardware and software requirements. Leveraging containers, FLECS streamlines this process, making it possible to reduce the SDA Gateway installation to a mere mouse click.

A Seamless Process for Users

The feature’s usage in the SDA console is simple and efficient:

  1. Install the SDA Secure Remote Access from the FLECS Marketplace.
  2. Run the SDA Secure Remote Access application on FLECS.
  3. Create a new Gateway in the SDA Console.
  4. Copy the setup command from the SDA Console.
  5. Paste and submit the command in the app.
  6. A new Gateway will be configured in the device after a few seconds.
  7. To verify that it’s working, simply return to the SDA Console and run the connectivity diagnostics. The health checks should show ‘OK’ statuses.

In this story of innovation, users are the heroes, effortlessly deploying and configuring SDA Secure Remote Connectivity through the FLECS Marketplace. The once complex task of setting up a Gateway is now a matter of a few clicks in a user-friendly interface. This transformative approach not only brings ease and efficiency but also paves the way for scalability. Imagine rolling out Software Defined Automation on a grand scale, harnessing the power of Docker and FLECS – this is the new era of industrial automation that SDA and FLECS are ushering in.
