Cloud Only Example
Modern third party device and equipment vendors often provide a cloud service bundled with their hardware. These cloud services are often limited in scope and capability to the specific hardware the vendor sells. Integrating this data into a device-agnostic platform like WideSky allows you to combine data feeds from a broad range of sensors and equipment.
This architecture has the following benefits:
- Existing historical data in the 3rd party cloud service can be leveraged.
- No upfront costs for on-premise hardware.
- All WideSky products are provided as a managed service.
- The WideSky Edge instance is provisioned in the same datacentre as WideSky Cloud for minimised latency and network traffic.
In this cloud-only architecture, WideSky Edge is used to integrate data from 3rd party cloud systems. Its role is to:
- Communicate to the 3rd party cloud system.
- Collect and transfer historical time-series data from the 3rd party cloud system.
- Push collected data to WideSky Cloud.
- Perform calculations on the collected data, e.g. alarm or virtual calculations and push to WideSky Cloud.
WideSky Cloud: WideSky Cloud requires a license for all cumulative points, (real and virtual).
WideSky Edge: This Cloud hosted version of WideSky Edge is provisioned and hosted by WideSky. The required license is dependant on the larger of either:
- The number of CPU cores required for data processing workloads.
- The size (number of points) of the datastore module.
For this example the following licenses are required:
|WS-C-INS||WideSky Cloud Instance Provisioning||1|
|WS-C-STD-5K||WideSky Cloud Standard. License for 5,000 points.||1|
|WS-E-HOST-C8||8 Core Cloud Hosted WideSky Edge. Includes Workflow engine, Datastore module WS-E-DS-5K and 100GB Storage.||1|
