OSIsoft, LLC (www.osisoft.com),
provider of the PI System and the leader in real-time data and events
infrastructure, today announced the release of PI Server 2012 at vCampus
Live! 2012. PI Server 2012 is the highest performance, most reliable,
most secure, and most scalable PI Server that OSIsoft has ever released.
"As the world becomes more connected, we see an exponential rise in the
amount number of sensors tied to all types of assets," said John Baier,
Director of Product Management at OSIsoft. "These assets are becoming
more sophisticated as well, adding many new parameters that drive data
stream counts higher. Users need the data to be captured at greater
fidelity than ever before, so that they can catch critical events, that
help make faster decisions and reduce cost. PI Server 2012 is designed
to meet these needs with the capacity to handle the data loads of today
and provide the ability for expansion going forward."
Engineered to meet the growing demands of your enterprise, PI Server
2012 ensures the data you need is there - when, how, and where you need
it. No matter what size your system, from large to small, PI Server 2012
can help. Here are some of the ways PI Server 2012 lets you realize the
Power of Data:
Scale up or scale out, and run at the speed of your business
Real-time data and events can come in different forms - in big bursts,
at very high rates, or across millions of data streams at the same time.
PI Server 2012 can easily scale up or scale out to collect and store
this volume of data and make it available to your end users. This can be
low frequency smart meter data from homes across an entire city, or high
speed data to ensure the electrical grid reliability.
All your historical data at your fingertips all the time
Find and retrieve many years of data as quickly as possible. Instantly
access and analyze important data by events, cutting the time it takes
to run your monthly or quarterly summary reports. With PI Server 2012,
you can keep all your data online and available to perform business
intelligence or ad hoc analyses in real time, without impacting other
users or round-the-clock operations.
Put your data and events where they belong
Centralize your data and events in a single place so that you have one
version of the truth, representing thousands of data streams and years
of history. PI Server 2012 has unique backfilling features,
enabling you to incorporate data from multiple systems into a single
data store, greatly simplifying system maintenance. This can now be
accomplished in a matter of hours instead of days or weeks.
Ensure your data is safe and secure
PI Server 2012 is enhanced for greater resilience over unreliable or
slow networks, has built-in features to recover from ungraceful
shutdowns, and has automatic recovery capabilities that improve
availability and reduce cost. System administrators will spend more time
enabling users and less time maintaining systems.
Visualize your data where and when you need it
Combining PI Server 2012 with new releases of PI Visualization products
allows you to consume real-time data using what you know best, the
assets in your facility. With simple asset context and easy event
discovery, it's intuitive to uncover valuable insights in your data.

"I have been testing PI Server 2012 on a Windows Server 2012 platform
and all I can say is WOW," said Jeff Edwards, Director at Triencon
Services Inc., a private energy services firm. "PI Server 2012 can
handle the depth of automated meter data with the speed to handle
synchrophasors, it has the tools for analysis and visualization, and the
hooks for integration with enterprise systems. This isn't your daddy's
