Crate.io, the developer of CrateDB, an SQL data platform for real-time machine data and IoT applications, has introduced a new application-specific solution for the manufacturing industry.
The Crate IoT Data Platform for Discrete Manufacturing enables the collection, analysis, storage, and provisioning of data for integrated manufacturing control within smart factories.
The company said data generated from smart factories come from countless sensors, machines, power supplies, employees, and various applications – and new data is arriving every millisecond.
“To properly capture, assess, and leverage this critical information for intelligent control requires both a real-time database and a reliable platform tailored to IIoT architectures, interfaces, data formats, and performance requirements,” it said.
At the core of Crate.io’s new solution is CrateDB, a distributed SQL database optimized specifically for the requirements of IoT manufacturing, including real-time time-series management.
“CrateDB allows the processing of time-series data in the millisecond range, in addition to enabling full-text search and geospatial queries for use within AI algorithms,” Crate.io explained.
Due to the specific requirements involved with discrete manufacturing, Crate has now created the IoT Data Platform for Discrete Manufacturing, which provides core capabilities for IoT device management, data enrichment, data science (including AI and machine learning), and dashboards.
Crate.io said it is now available and has already been installed at approximately 20 factories throughout the United States and Europe.
