Depending on the supported security protocols, machines can now be flexibly connected, either by OpenVPN or IPsec. This facility means that Sinema Remote Connect can communicate securely over routers with the majority of connected machines. Siemens also offers a complete solution for virtualization (Simatic Virtualization as a Service): The solution encompasses set-up of the Sinema Remote Connect Server, the configuration of virtual machines and their network structure, the installation and configuration of the operating system and ready-to-use installation of the Simatic software. To support the virtualized systems over their entire life cycle, Siemens offers a number of inter-coordinated services, including Simatic Remote Services for remote access by means of a cRSP (common Remote Service Platform), and Managed Support Services, which encompass all support activities surrounding the virtualized host system.
