SkyFoundry (https://www.skyfoundry.com), a leading developer of analytics software for use with IoT device and equipment data, today announced the availability of Automated Provisioning features during the opening of the company’s SkyPosium User Conference in Charlotte, NC. SkySpark® Everywhere™ Automated Provisioning simplifies the management of systems that employ the SkySpark distributed computing architecture.

SkySpark Everywhere addresses one of the key challenges in implementing next-generation IoT applications, which is the ability to distribute advanced analytics across multiple compute devices, from the edge to the cloud. It allows those devices to be connected in a unified, seamless distributed computing system that can scale to thousands of nodes, millions of points, and billions of data samples.

These new Automated Provisioning features, enhance the Automated Replication features of SkySpark Everywhere, which enable databases from distributed nodes to be automatically replicated to a central server or cloud platform for high-availability data access and backup.

SkySpark Software automatically analyzes equipment and smart device data to identify issues and faults, and opportunities for improved performance and operational savings. It can run on low-cost, embedded devices as small as a Raspberry Pi* Zero, as well as industrial PCs, Servers and in the Cloud. Data collection, analytics processing, visualization and reporting functions are executed locally in each node and results are combined into seamless views for owners and operators using a standard web browser. Secure inter-node communications is achieved using the SkyFoundry “Arcbeam” websocket-based, certificate-authenticated protocol.

“We changed the game for data analytics for the Internet of Things by embracing the reality that the IoT is a distributed computing challenge with the introduction of SkySpark Everywhere three years ago. It's simply not possible to send every piece of data from every IoT device or sensor to the cloud before doing anything of value with that data. SkySpark Everywhere has enabled advanced analytics to be deployed on-premise at the edge where the data is generated, as well as in the cloud,” said John Petze, Principal and Co-Founder of SkyFoundry. “Adding Automated Provisioning dramatically simplifies the management of distributed systems deploying SkySpark Everywhere, which has been rapidly adopted by our Solutions Partners and customers. It takes our leadership position in edge-to-cloud analytics to the next level.”

SkySpark Everywhere combines full user programmability with an extensive library of built-in functions, allowing analytics to be custom-tailored to meet the real-world needs of individual systems and in applications of all types. Owners and operators are able to utilize their specialized domain knowledge in conjunction with the deep expertise of SkyFoundry Solution Partners, to implement data analytics that fit their unique system characteristics and requirements.
