It was recently brought to my attention that not many PI Dev Club members were aware of the opportunity to use OSIsoft’s first cloud-based service. PI Cloud Connect offers a free trial, and the Development PI System will work with it. PI Cloud Connect enables people to share data across enterprises in a simple and low-maintenance way. Today there are many customers in many different industries actively using the product, including Power Generation, Transmission & Distribution, Oil & Gas, and Pharmaceutical.
- The sharing of data does not require a VPN
- Deliver asset context along with the equipment data
- Automatically receive new features
Is PI Cloud Connect replacing PI to PI?
- PI Cloud Connect is best for:
- Sharing data across enterprises.
- Sharing subsets of PI System data, which includes selected AF objects and their associated PI Data Archive data.
- PI to PI is best for:
- Intra-company data aggregation.
- PI Data Archive data only.
