Edge-device analyses with TempusDB
Data at the network edge also needs to be analyzed.
How do you gain important insights exactly when and where you need them?
And how do you avoid a stream of unimportant data? Traditionally, data is analyzed in the core of the network. However, with the growing popularity of IoT sensors and -devices, data has to be analyzed closer to its source and to be condensed for core analysis. Edge analyses provide a better user experience and shorter response times, e.g. on cruise ships, in monitoring health statuses or full system capacities.
Edge device analyses need to take place in a fast and reliable way and with a minimal employment of resources. Thus, you need a database that is failure-resistant and can easily be applied to the right extent. TempusDB is a high-performance, highly failure-resistant NoSQL database, which has been optimized for the real-time analysis of time series data. In case of rising demand, the capacity can easily be extended with standard hardware. Even in the case of a hardware- or network failure, it can react to read- and write-queries. TempusDB requires less hardware resources with the same computing capacity so that the system is ideal for edge analyses. With TempusDB, analyses can easily be conducted with the help of SQL range queries.

They rely on TempusDB, ensuring that patient data and the data of the provider are always available for hospital edge analysis. Considering constantly rising nursing expenses, it is necessary to have an economic and highly reliable edge solution available that reduces these costs.


Data feeds with a timestamp

Fast analysis of series data is business-critical.

Time – we never seem to have enough of it. However, at the same time, series data gets out of control.
Familiar examples are:
– E-commerce applications – storage and analysis of the total value and the place of delivery for an order over time
– Gaming applications – storage and analysis of player actions in a video game
– IT metrics – storage and analysis of IT data (e.g. SLAs, API performance, system metrics)
– Finance applications – storage and analysis of selling price and amount of traded stock (e.g. market index)

Data feeds with a timestamp in TempusDB
Data feeds occur in any form or size and the data itself is usually semi-structured. Thus, it is necessary to have a database adapted to series data with the help of which data can easily be analyzed thanks to range queries. TempusDB is a high-performance, highly failure-resistant NoSQL database which has been optimized for fast reading and writing of data feeds. Data co-location allows fast storing of series data and, together with the possibility of creating tables and running SQL queries, this fact allows a faster analysis of your series data. TempusDB is user-friendly, and in case of rising demand, allows an extension of the capacity with standard hardware. Complicated data sharding is not necessary.

Why you should use TempusDB for data feeds with a timestamp
Regardless of whether your data consists of a set of clicks and views or of data of the financial market, TempusDB ideally stores your series data for fast analysis and real-time reactions. TempusDB has a masterless architecture, high reliability, linear scalability and is user-friendly, all of which is vital for ensuring the constant accessibility of your series data for reading and writing operations.

Finance- and insurance companies use TempusDB to store and analyze commodity trade and market data, stock selling prices and -amounts as well as for risk evaluation.


Metrics/Log analyses with TempusDB
Metrics and log analyses help to advance your business.
Everyone has their own opinion, but the best decisions are based on data. How can you use log and metric data to make better business decisions? Systems have always also contained log data, but the amount, speed and complexity of these logs have exponentially increased since the spread of IoT sensors and -devices. Furthermore, we are observing an exponential increase of metric analysis. This metric and log files require fast reading and writing operations combined with the possibility of accessing data with range queries –all of this with consistently fast, reliable and scalable systems. With conventional relational databases, this is simply impossible.
Metrics and logs can arrive with a high speed and in a large variety of volume. Some serve as source of information, others require immediate action. Often, a complex analysis is necessary to determine if action is required. Data which looks like information in the beginning can turn out to be a serious issue if the data is aggregated and analyzed after a period of time. TempusDB provides the high performance and reliability needed for the fast analysis of metrics and log data. Data co-location allows fast storage and analysis of semi-structured series data. With TempusDB, range queries can be run so that the cross-system- or cross-device analysis can be limited to certain time spans. In addition, SQL queries make the analysis of your data faster and easier.
