INDUSTRIAL EDGE CLOUD


Ruggedised computing appliance providing advanced analytics and cloud synchronisation capabilities at remote locations.

OVERVIEW


HOW IT WORKS

  • CONNECT. COLLECT. STREAM.

    Connect directly to industrial assets to seamlessly collect high-frequency sensor data. Aggregated data can be streamed back to a private data centre or public cloud for “fleet-view” analysis.

  • SECURE AND STORE

    Raw, time-series based datasets are filtered, standardised and loaded into a local, secure, fault-tolerant and distributed file system.

  • ANALYSE AND BUILD

    High-speed clusters of parallel computing resources cache, transform and convert raw data streams into meaningful datasets for analysis and application development.

EDGE CLOUD IN ACTION

  • CHALLENGE

    A global manufacturer needed to model sensitive and secure data, locally, to identify trends and patterns in asset performance and run root cause analyses.

  • THE SOLUTION

    Multiple Industrial Edge Cloud™ nodes, running Foresight Engine™, were deployed at the client's factory to enable the engineering team to create complex statistical models and generate insights.

  • THE RESULT

    The client's engineering team was able to run sophisticated analyses and build complex models locally without having to leave the factory or expose sensitive data over the network.

FEATURES


  • RUGGEDISED HARDWARE

    Built to withstand harsh industrial environments, the Industrial Edge Cloud is a ruggedised, compact hardware appliance that provides robust compute capabilities, cloud connectivity and secure storage anywhere advanced analytical processing is needed.

  • BUILT ON OPEN-STANDARDS

    The Industrial Edge Cloud is built on Open Compute Project (OCP) hardware and OpenStack Cloud software for maximum interoperability. The Cloud Foundry open-source platform provides scalable micro-services, continuous deployment capabilities, faster cycle time and higher reliability.

  • RUNS FORESIGHT ENGINE

    Connect to and collect data from any source, at any frequency or scale. Build complex models, run sophisticated analytics, collaborate across teams and deploy cloud-native, predictive applications locally - without having to worry about the underlying infrastructure.

TECH SPECS


The Industrial Edge Cloud™ is equipped with 9 compute nodes, 144 Intel®Xenon cores, 5TB of storage and 576GB of RAM giving you the capacity you need to process any advanced analytic.

  • DATA PROCESSING

    Data can be synthesised from any source, location, frequency, format and file size. A highly-elastic and fault-tolerant Lambda architecture can process massive quantities of batch and streaming data.

  • DATA STORAGE

    Designed for industrial time-based data, QiO’s data storage platform is non-relational, fully-configurable, secure and can be deployed in any industrial environment.

  • CLUSTER COMPUTING

    The Industrial Edge Cloud appliance uses Spark for high-speed parallel computing to transform and convert raw, distributed data streams into meaningful datasets for analysis and application development.

  • ASSET MODELING

    Easily explore and model big data from any data source or file type. Train a model on complete data sets, not samples, and iterate and score in real-time.

  • API EXTENSIBILITY

    QiO provides seamless API connectivity to ERP, asset management, billing, HR and supply chain systems.

  • DATA SECURITY

    Raw data is stored locally and encrypted, providing complete isolation and protection of sensitive data sets.
