Exercise 1 - Once you have watched the introductory videos on PI System architectures and planning, draw a diagram of your company's existing PI System (if any) and network structure. You may want to find your PI System administrator or an IT professional to interview. Then draw your PI system:
- What domain(s) exist within your organization?
- Do you have multiple sites, vendors or customers you need to connect with externally, or any geographic boundaries?
- Does your organization have any existing PI System components? Are they configured for High Availability?
- Who uses the PI System? What do they do with the data? Where should they be retrieving data from?
