ABB re­leases MPS Pro­duc­tion 6

Newspapers & Technology Magazine - - Contents -

ABB re­leased ver­sion 6 of press man­age­ment sys­tem MPS Pro­duc­tion, and an­nounced that Nor­we­gian pub­lisher Schib­sted Media Group is the first to pur­chase the sys­tem. MPS Pro­duc­tion 6 will be in­stalled at Schib­sted’s Ber­gen news­pa­per, Ber­gens Ti­dende.

New to ver­sion 6 is the trans­fer of the en­tire sys­tem to the Post­greSQL data­base. This up­grade en­ables vir­tu­al­iza­tion of the sys­tem while re­tain­ing the func­tion­al­ity and ad­van­tages of the pre­vi­ous sys­tem, ABB said.

Vir­tu­al­iza­tion means that the app can be moved to a new plat­form, free­ing users from the chal­lenges im­posed by hard­ware and op­er­at­ing sys­tem life­cy­cles. An ad­di­tional copy of MPS Pro­duc­tion can be de­ployed in par­al­lel with the orig­i­nal ver­sion and the new ver­sion can be tested on the tar­get hard­ware. Once test­ing is com­plete, a sim­ple switch can be made be­tween the two ver­sions, ac­cord­ing to ABB. Vir­tu­al­iza­tion es­sen­tially en­sures that data can be stored re­dun­dantly, pro­vid­ing a more ro­bust backup so­lu­tion than a con­ven­tional clus­ter.
