The PI System on Amazon Web Services - White Paper

Discussion created by rwilliams on Jan 6, 2020

The typical PI System consists of numerous components, with PI Server components installed on several server machines. While historically the PI system was installed on physical servers, installation on non-physical servers is becoming increasingly common.


Two main options are available for non-physical implementation:

  • implementing virtual servers on a physical host that the business controls
  • implementing servers on a cloud host controlled by a third party


This white paper addresses best practices for implementation of the PI System on the Amazon Web Services cloud service. Areas of focus include, but are not limited to: PI server configuration, network reliability and level of service, securitypractices, IP addressing, resource allocation, and disaster recovery.
