AVEVA Historian

Big data – collection, storage and analysis

Capture and store high-fidelity industrial data. AVEVATM Historian is a high-performance process database capable of storing the huge volumes of data generated from today’s industrial facilities.

AVEVA Historian combines advanced data storage and compression techniques with an industry-standard query interface to ensure open access to your process, alarm, and event data. It enables faster, more informed decisions while keeping your team fully informed on operational performance.

A complete picture of operational history

Unlike conventional relational databases that are not well-suited to production environments, AVEVA Historian handles time-series data, as well as alarm and event data. Unique “block technology" captures plant data hundreds of times faster than a standard database system and utilizes a fraction of conventional storage space.

Optimized data storage

AVEVA Historian combines front-end, high-speed data collection with time-series extensions to an embedded Microsoft SQL Server relational database. Additionally, our patented “swinging door” data storage algorithm greatly reduces data storage requirements while preserving data integrity

Advanced data storage and compression

Advanced data storage and compression combined with industry-standard query language provides easy, open access to all process, alarm and event data. This enables faster, more informed decisions while keeping everyone informed on operational performance.

Uncompromising data integrity

Regardless of your industry, AVEVA Historian will maintain the data integrity needed for the most demanding requirements. AVEVA Historian manages low bandwidth data communications, late coming information, and even data from systems with mismatched system clocks. Ensuring high resolution data is captured accurately every time.

Hardware Independence and Open Connectivity

Native drivers to more than 240 communication protocols, covering all major PLCs, temperature controllers, motion controllers, bar code/2D/RFID readers and many other devices. Connect to any SQL database (Microsoft SQL, MySQL, Wonderware Historian), or Microsoft Access or Excel, and ERP/MES systems. Embedded Web Server allows you to connect to your machine from anywhere at any time. Leverage store-and-forward capabilities to save information locally (if the connection to the historian is lost), and forward it to the historian when the connection is re-established.
