As manufacturing enterprises increasingly depend upon information coming from the factory or process, security of the data becomes crucial. OSIsoft Inc., San Leandro, Calif., has released a high-availability (HA) PI System, an update to the company’s real-time PI historian platform. This release provides fault-tolerant software that delivers interface failover, buffering, PI Server replication and software development kit services.
While the PI System can prevent data loss during planned maintenance, lack of access to data during a maintenance period may be unacceptable. Unplanned downtime represents another potential source of data loss. With the HA release, there is greater assurance that data will always be gathered, stored and available to everyone across the organization at all times. Existing OSIsoft customers can upgrade from PI to PI HA using point-and-click tools that leverage existing operational investments and infrastructure.
