How to make your industrial data fit for purpose

A modern industrial facility can easily produce a terabyte of data each day; unfortunately, not all of this data is usable or useful in its original form.

This 7-step guide will help you process your industrial data and transform it into a useable, valuable source of insight.

Read on to learn more about Industrial IoT data and its proper use.

  • Storage Capacity 101 to Post-Grad in a Flash

    In this report from Quocirca, analyst Clive Longbottom explains why you don’t always get what you think you’re getting with flash storage.

    Data is made up from bits of information – 8 bits to a byte (4 to a nibble, for those who care). Kilobytes, Megabytes, Gigabytes, Terabytes and Petabytes all used to be based on the ‘power of 2’ system, so 1kB was 1,024 bytes (2 to the power 10), but has now come in line with standard metric notation, and is now 1,000 bytes.

    This immediately affects storage for anyone who was brought up on the power of 2 notation. As 1MB would be 1024 bytes squared (1,048,576 bytes), 1GB 1024 cubed, and 1TB 1024 to the power 4, we start to see how the quoted storage of a disk is less than many of us expect. It may only lead to a 1% error at the kilobyte level, but it’s getting close to 10% at the terabyte level; that is capacity that many think they are getting that they are not. To this end, the IEC has renamed old-style units as kibibytes (KiB), mebibytes (MiB) and gibibytes (GiB).

    But, as with all-flash storage, you get to use much more of your available capacity than with a disk-based solution.

  • High-Performance Computing as a Service: Powering Autonomous Driving

    Zenseact, a startup owned by Volvo Cars, is innovating the design and development of autonomous cars. Each Zenseact test car generates more than 50 terabytes of data a day—but all of that data needs to be validated for accuracy to make sure the artificial intelligence brain is learning the right behaviors. 

    Rather than building every aspect of the technology in house, Zenseact sought an IT partner focused on innovation.

    Explore in this TechTarget blog post the high-performance IT systems that are powering autonomous car development, and how Zenseact and Hewlett Packard Enterprise are partnering to “make it real.”
