Today, we are announcing the launch of a new feature in AWS IoT SiteWise that allows cost-efficient and scalable ingestion of time-series data needed for analytical use cases. Until now, customers have used AWS IoT SiteWise streaming ingestion APIs to ingest telemetry data for real-time use cases within milliseconds. With this new feature, customers can now buffer time-series data streams at the edge before ingesting to the cloud. This lowers ingestion cost for data needed in the cloud within minutes instead of milliseconds. For example, data needed for machine learning applications and BI analytics dashboards that only need to be updated every 15 minutes. The combination of the two ingestion mechanisms allows customers to configure efficient ingestion pipelines for data needed for real-time and analytical applications.
Customers can use the AWS IoT SiteWise console to configure which data streams will be buffered, as well as the maximum amount of time data is buffered at the edge before it is ingested to the cloud. Once configured, AWS IoT SiteWise will buffer and ingest data using the customer defined configurations.
This feature is available in all regions where AWS IoT SiteWise is available.
AWS IoT SiteWise is a managed service that makes it easy to collect, store, organize and monitor data from industrial equipment at scale. To get started, log into the AWS Management Console, navigate to the AWS IoT SiteWise console and watch the on-demand demo to see what’s possible with AWS IoT SiteWise.
