    We are considering this feedback as a potential feature sometime in future release of Edge Data Store. Meanwhile, please provide any additional information regarding this feedback.

  2. Egress data to another Edge Data Store

    I would like to be able to configure an Edge Data Store to egress data to another Edge Data Store. Due to network limitations, I cannot egress data directly to OCS or PI Web API. Egressing to another Edge Data Store would allow me to configure an architecture where one EDS acts as a relay to the other before reaching a final egress endpoint like the PI Web API or OCS.

    With the current supported version of EDS, egress from EDS can become ingress to EDS if both EDS instances are on same device.
    We are considering this feedback as a potential feature sometime in future release of Edge Data Store. Meanwhile, please provide any additional information regarding this feedback.

  3. remote ingress to EDS

    Enable remote access to EDS OMF endpoint to support deployments where Adapter/OMF application is installed on different host/network to EDS because architecture must fit in with tiered networks for critical asset security. For example remote sites or assets with multiple networks separating data source from internet access.

    OSIsoft would like to better understand the needs around local visualization for the Edge Data Store (EDS). For example, what type of visualization, e.g. simple time series trends? Does the visualization serve one EDS or can data from multiple EDS be visualized? Note for the EDS v1 release, OSIsoft is relying on partners and end customers to develop their own data visualization applications using the EDS API.

  5. Store Images & Pictures into EDS

    Ability to store images as time bound data into EDS, and send the images to OCS for longer term storage, viewing or modeling/analysis.

    Example scenario: a thermal camera takes a picture of a furnace, image stored locally, and then sent to OCS where it is used to extract data and performance KPIs about the furnace (stored back into OCS).

  6. Different Transfer Modes for EDS Egress

    Ability to transfer a subset of important data to PI/OCS and trigger transfer of less important data manually when connectivity of remote asset improves.

    For example, send 1000 streams to PI or OCS continuously, and send remaining streams when ship asset comes to shore every couple of months.

    We would like more information around this enhancement request, namely how you may classify important data streams. How would you identify which data streams need to be sent continuously? Please share more use cases with us so that we can review with those in mind.

  7. Use EDS to download OCS and PI data for use as a local data cache for Data Science in tools like R-Studio and Jupyter Notebook

    As a data scientist, I would like to set up types, streams, and query data from OCS to use locally on my desktop in data science languages (e.g. R, Python) and tools I use (R-Studio, Jupyter Notebook) so that I can rapidly try different numerical methods rapidly, and possibly send results back to OCS and/or PI Systems.

    The latest version of Edge Data Store released during June 2020 egresses data into OCS and PI and does not support download of data from OCS and PI. While its possible to locally access the data on EDS itself. Please provide additional information and scenarios for this idea.

  8. Kerberos Authentication from EDS to PI

    Submitting on behalf of a customer concerned about meeting stringent security requirements. Kerberos is a staple in their security architecture and the would very much like to incorporate it here.

  9. EDS: security/authentication mechanism

    Customer wants to deploy EDS at machine level to collect data from PLCs which are directly connected to the machine which would imply a proper security / authentication mechanism for EDS

  10. Transformation and Scaling for OPC UA Adaptor

    Implement transformation and scaling for OPC UA adaptor the way it exists for PI OPC DA interface tags. The user can modify egressed tags and the data will be transformed / scaled when egressed.

  11. Retrieve EDS Data Egress Status through REST API call

    It would be great to have a REST API call available in EDS to get the current data egress state rather looking it up through the logfiles. The idea is to get information about when data was (successfully) egressed to OCS, AVEVA Data Hub or the PI WebAPI OMF Endpoint.
