In the previous article “Archiving in SCADA and MES systems” we described the features of archiving in SCADA/MES systems from the point of view of the user (or the configurator that creates archive objects). This article focuses on the "enterprise" properties of archives. By this, we do not mean a resemblance to the spaceship from the sci-fi series Star Trek, but features that allow it to be used for large-scale enterprise solutions. Not every archive subsystem is suitable for use in applications with thousands of archived values per second, tens of thousands of archive objects, hundreds of gigabytes of archived data, and hundreds of users connected in parallel.
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://d2000.ipesoft.com/blog/enterprise-features-of-archiving-in-scada-and-mes-systems/
