PI Connector for OPC UA Relay Support
As a PI Admin relays allow for improved security of process-network-to-DMZ communication. This will greatly aide in the PI Connector for OPC UA's deployment in production systems.
We plan to bring the Relay functionality to PI Connector for OPC UA and are actively working on enabling this.

The OPC UA support for the PI Connector relay will help a french customer reduce the risk from the security perspective. A the moment, the OPC UA connector is in the DMZ causing performance issues due mainly to OPC UA Server latency.
One of the new “PI Connectors” that we have for use to connect to OPC UA Servers like the Ignition systems, is not yet updated to be compatible with OSI’s Relay software. This vote on this item is to help encourage OSIsoft to get that completed to be able to support deployment of this in our production systems.
