Suggested time commitment: 3 weeks of study, 4-5 hours/week
In this course, you will learn about the topics surrounding the design and implementation of a highly available PI System. Specifically, you will learn how to install a PI Data Archive and form a PI Collective within an existing system. Additionally, the course will cover the basics of installing a PI Interface, enabling the PI Buffer Subsystem, and configuring a PI Interface for Interface Failover.
There are 7 hands-on exercises tailored to apply the knowledge you've learned in the video lectures. By the end of the course, you will have a working knowledge and new skills to conceptualize and deploy a highly available PI System.
Below are the video lectures for this course. We have placed the topics in the same order as they would be presented in a live instructor-led course. However, feel free to view the videos in any order, spread over any interval. You can also rewind and rewatch parts of the videos that you need to view again. Also be sure to check out the Online Course Videos - Tips and Tricks if your videos look fuzzy!

Tell us how we can improve:
The course ends with a challenge to develop a PI System Architecture that will meet all of the needs and technical restraints of your PI System environment.
The goal of this is two-fold: to reinforce in the student the new skills learned in the class and to allow more time for the student to ask questions and get clarification on concepts prior to returning to their job. If a student has access to their own test PI System, they will use this to work from. If the student does not have access to their own test environment, they have an option to use the Implementing PI System High Availability - Cloud Environment .
