Fast & Big Data Architecture for IIoT
As mentioned in my previous post, an IoT solution requires analytics as a critical component, and analytics requires a copious amount of data to detect patterns which inevitably escape human observation. This blog post tackles and offers a potential solution to the IoT data challenges.
Tremendous business value from IIoT comes through the real-time analysis of streaming sensor data (Fast Data) combined with the analysis of a large volume of sensor data over longer time periods with other enterprise data (Big Data). This architecture is sometimes referred as the Lambda architecture.
Any IIoT architecture is invariably going to face bandwidth challenges, scalability challenges and must be able to respond in real-time for actionable intelligence as shown in the figure.
