We have been gathering use cases and information about OPC UA Server functionality as it pertains to OSIsoft products.
There are a number of different requirements to consider, and as such we’re changing the status back to “UNDER REVIEW / RESEARCHING” to more accurately reflect the current status of the work.
At this time, we are not committing to bringing this capability to market.
We will update this thread if the status changes.

In response to Raymond Verhoeff, "We have started work on an OPC UA server..."
Ideally, would want to use Pi as BOTH an OPC / UA client and server.
From a client perspective, the Pi OPC / UA connector could be used to either poll OPC / UA based comm mgmt. servers (like Kepware) or subscribe to published events via OPC / UA from comm managers capable of that or eventually edge based PLCs, etc. that can act as OPC / UA servers.
From a server perspective, once data is collected into PI Server, would like to be able to stream it (via OPC / UA over MQTT or AMZP) up to an IoTHub in Azure for more advanced analytics. It looks like this piece may be doable in the upcoming version of the Pi Integrator for Azure.
