OSIsoft Releases PI Server 2012

OSIsoft, LLC (www.osisoft.com), provider of the PI System and the leader in real-time data and events infrastructure, today announced the release of PI Server 2012 at vCampus Live! 2012. PI Server 2012 is the highest performance, most reliable, most secure, and most scalable PI Server that OSIsoft has ever released.

“As the world becomes more connected, we see an exponential rise in the amount number of sensors tied to all types of assets,” said John Baier, Director of Product Management at OSIsoft. “These assets are becoming more sophisticated as well, adding many new parameters that drive data stream counts higher. Users need the data to be captured at greater fidelity than ever before, so that they can catch critical events, that help make faster decisions and reduce cost. PI Server 2012 is designed to meet these needs with the capacity to handle the data loads of today and provide the ability for expansion going forward.”

Engineered to meet the growing demands of your enterprise, PI Server 2012 ensures the data you need is there – when, how, and where you need it. No matter what size your system, from large to small, PI Server 2012 can help. Here are some of the ways PI Server 2012 lets you realize the Power of Data:

Scale up or scale out, and run at the speed of your business

Real-time data and events can come in different forms – in big bursts, at very high rates, or across millions of data streams at the same time. PI Server 2012 can easily scale up or scale out to collect and store this volume of data and make it available to your end users. This can be low frequency smart meter data from homes across an entire city, or high speed data to ensure the electrical grid reliability.

All your historical data at your fingertips all the time

Find and retrieve many years of data as quickly as possible. Instantly access and analyze important data by events, cutting the time it takes to run your monthly or quarterly summary reports. With PI Server 2012, you can keep all your data online and available to perform business intelligence or ad hoc analyses in real time, without impacting other users or round-the-clock operations.

Put your data and events where they belong

Centralize your data and events in a single place so that you have one version of the truth, representing thousands of data streams and years of history. PI Server 2012 has unique backfilling features, enabling you to incorporate data from multiple systems into a single data store, greatly simplifying system maintenance. This can now be accomplished in a matter of hours instead of days or weeks.

Ensure your data is safe and secure

PI Server 2012 is enhanced for greater resilience over unreliable or slow networks, has built-in features to recover from ungraceful shutdowns, and has automatic recovery capabilities that improve availability and reduce cost. System administrators will spend more time enabling users and less time maintaining systems.

Visualize your data where and when you need it

Combining PI Server 2012 with new releases of PI Visualization products allows you to consume real-time data using what you know best, the assets in your facility. With simple asset context and easy event discovery, it’s intuitive to uncover valuable insights in your data. Want to analyze data on the move? Try the new PI Coresight iPad® App, soon to be available in the Apple iTunes® store.

Ready for mission-critical operations

As a true test of mission-critical operation readiness, the OSIsoft Network Operations Center (NOC) has been monitoring the PI Systems of enterprise customers for the last eight months using PI Server 2012. Join the NOC and hundreds of PI System users who already count on PI Server 2012 to keep their business running 24/7.

“I have been testing PI Server 2012 on a Windows Server 2012 platform and all I can say is WOW,” said Jeff Edwards, Director at Triencon Services Inc., a private energy services firm. “PI Server 2012 can handle the depth of automated meter data with the speed to handle synchrophasors, it has the tools for analysis and visualization, and the hooks for integration with enterprise systems. This isn't your daddy’s PI System.”

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
