AVEVA™ Historian

A high-fidelity industrial database that consolidates and stores data from disparate sources and enables users to access relevant information across the enterprise.
Hybrid Industry Historian - Combining Process and Digital data
Unlike conventional relational database technology which is not well-suited to production environments, AVEVA Historian handles time-series data, as well as alarm and event data. Unique AVEVA “block technology" captures plant data hundreds of times faster than a standard database system and utilizes a fraction of conventional storage space.

Maintaining Business Continuity, Data High Availability
Maintaining Business Continuity - High Availability
  • Configure one tier as a data repository for backup of critical information or replicate historical data in multiple tiers.
  • Lower tiers can feed higher levels either a complete data stream or just summary, aggregated data.
  • If the system goes down while you are using data analysis and reporting applications such as AVEVA Historian Client, the system switches automatically to a designated backup historian.
  • When the primary historian comes back online, all connected AVEVA Historian Client instances switch back automatically to the primary server.
