The initial release of the Edge Data Store (EDS) will include OPC UA (server) connectivity. OSIsoft would like to understand if OPC UA can be used in place of OPC DA due to the difficulties in implementing OPC DA (server) connectivity on non-Windows OS. Note EDS is targeting Windows and Linux devices with the majority of the use cases favoring Linux.
The initial release of the Edge Data Store (EDS) will include Modbus TCP (slave) and OPC UA (server) connectivity to supplement the OMF endpoint and EDS API options for data ingress.
We plan to provide users the ability to pick their tag naming convention and not worry about managing a cache file. We are working on implementing this functionality with PI Connector for OPC UA.TJNoel supported this idea ·

I have a customer who is upgrading from an OPC DA interface to an OPC UA connector. They have an existing tag naming convention, as well as many Excel spreadsheets and PI Datalink functions that already use tag names. They are considering moving to the OPC UA connector but will need a reliable and supported way of maintaining the existing tag names rather than using the connector naming convention.
