Support Failover for PI Adapters
As a customer, I need to ensure that the primary instance of the adapter fails over to a secondary instance to minimize data loss.
We are currently considering the future development of this functionality. Please share your use cases here.

I have a customer that is looking at Adapters, EDS and OCS as an option in a GMP/pharmaceutical setting. They realize there will have to be some concessions for cloud based software in GMP, but they would like to ensure data integrity is present from the data source all the way to the cloud service, and so have asked for adapter failover that will ensure no data loss. This is one qualification of a data integrity assessment that they would do for the solution should they decide to test it.

If PI Adapters are to eventually replace PI Interfaces and PI Connectors, this will be necessary. To many customers, having redundancy is more important than using the latest, fastest, most secure/user-friendly/lightweight/scalable technology.
