The pervasiveness of big data has led to an equally significant expansion of what can be called “big storage.” Whether you’re a cloud service provider or an enterprise, managing that big data requires highly complex and sophisticated storage systems. Failure of these systems is not an option.

Storage system providers have turned to IoT analytics both to help ensure optimal performance and to gain a deeper understanding of how customers are using their solutions.

Every machine produces logs. Even those escalators and elevators at your favorite mall or office space. Here’s what will happen next. Those escalators will talk to a forecaster sitting at a remote location,and transmit data that will be tremendously valuable for their own maintenance.

But what messages are they transmitting? What’s the objective?

Typical messages that are getting collected include information on wear and tear of mechanical parts, peak load times, usages of interactive controls, activation of alarms and safety thresholds, and so on.

Security remains one of the primary impediments to broad IOT adoption across the industry. Our sales and business development teams face similar objections to the adoption of Glassbeam. We held a Webinar last year, with our partner Dimension Data, that articulated how we ensure security in machine data in terms of encryption, secure transportation, multi-tenancy and more.

Wind energy equipment manufacturer’s guide to iot service excellence

In a wind farm running hundreds of wind turbines, the hydraulic systems play an important part in running the turbine smoothly. Hydraulic systems optimize the turbine by controlling the blade pitch to maximize the amount of power generated under unpredictable wind conditions. Performance takes a hit, when there’s a sudden drop in pressure. In the worst case scenario, a complete loss in pressure can destroy components, resulting in significant financial losses.
