Welcome to the Xentara Reseller Partner Program

With the Xentara Reseller Partner Program, embedded ocean invites system integrators and hardware suppliers to join us in establishing the Xentara ecosystem as the platform the Fourth Industrial Revolution will be built upon. 

With attractive volume licensing options, Xentara Resellers can offer their customers a future proof, highly adaptable Industry 4.0 platform while reducing costs.

What is your business model?

IoT Services

Whether in Analytics, Visualization, AI / ML or Northbound IT (MES, ERP, etc) you need connectivity and a powerful data aggregator / preprocessor. Integrating Xentara with your services gives you more flexibility and enables easier client side deployment.

Embedded Computing

Whether in IoT gateways or Edge devices, embedded computers and industrial PCs are the building blocks for digitalizing factories and processes. Make the change easier for your customers by delivering devices with a preinstalled Xentara instance and connectivity Skills.

System Integration

Factory Integration and Brownfield Digitalization can be a major hassle. Make your job easier, shorten development cycles and deliver everything your customers need by deploying Xentara on their projects, allowing them to save time, money and effort.

Frequently Asked Questions

With Xentara gaining traction in the world of Industrial Automation, system integrators and Chief Digital Officers planning a digitalization strategy who decide to deploy Xentara will look for certified devices and services to use. Having your products verified as Xentara ready will make them a prime choice for these projects.

The Xentara capable certification will be a value ad for your offerings. As a reseller, you will also be able to offer attractive bundle deals including the core platform.

Having Xentara come preinstalled on your devices offers your customers unprecedented connectivity both for data acquisition and processing as well as dissemination right out of the box. Xentara enabled devices offer compatibility with all major industrial field buses, IoT protocols and most PLCs without the need for additional software or tools.

Our engineering team can offer you support in creating an optimal base configuration for devices in your product portfolio. This configuration, combined with an optimized Linux setup, can be stored as as a complete disk image. After image creation is completed, deploying on your devices is a simple image copying process.

The choice is completely up to your customers. With Xentara, they can run data analysis right in the machine controls or in local on-premise systems. However, they can also employ an external cloud (either self-hosted or provided by a cloud service provider).

Volume Licensing contracts are individual agreements between embedded ocean and the Reseller based on the Reseller’s product, business model and estimated annual licensing volume. As such, there is no standard pricing information available. Rest assured volume licensing will always be significantly cheaper than individual licenses.

Our Engineering and Project Management teams stand ready to support you on any project from the planning stage until final deployment. Using Xentara, complex devices can be seamlessly simulated to help with designing distributed systems. 

Through our Marketplace Program, we can connect you with developers to implement custom tailored Skills for your requirements.

Your customers’ data is and always will be theirs. What happens with it is entirely their decision. Xentara empowers them to handle data analysis themselves or to use any external service provider they choose. At no point does embedded ocean access any of their data unless contracted as a service provider for data processing.

Xentara’ open nature means your clients can keep using established tool sets. embedded ocean offers software connectors to several established MES and ERP suites. If there is currently no software adapter for the suite your clients use, it can be developed as part of an ongoing joint project.

No. Because Xentara has open interfaces that can adapt to all kinds of different protocols, any technology your clients have already chosen can be integrated into a Xentara empowered strategy. Actually, their roadmap will probably be simplified by using a universal integration layer like Xentara, but the overall strategy will stay in place as desired.

embedded ocean has a “Xentara legacy” program im place that will release the platform as Open Source in case the company ever goes defunct. Not only is the OS community very good at maintaining legacy code, but this will also allow you to have your own software engineers work on the platform (or hire an external software developer to do so). You could even create your own fork of Xentara if you desire.

Also, with Xentara available as Open Source, partners will continue developing Skills and other enhancements.
