MemSQL showcases potential of industrial IoT with real-time analytics
IoT News is a practical resource providing news, analysis and opinion on the burgeoning Internet of Things ecosystem, from standardisation, to business use cases, and development opportunities. We take the best research and put our own spin on it, report from the frontline of the industry, as well as feature contributions from companies at the heart of this revolution.


Real-time database provider MemSQL will unveil PowerStream, a new application using the Industrial Internet of Things to power real-time analytics, at Spark Summit East.

PowerStream utilises a real-life dataset of close to 20,000 wind farms and 200,000 individual wind turbines equipped with sensors generating over a million transactions per second. The application manages to absorb the data and generate actionable insights in real time.

PowerStream is based on MemSQL Streamliner, an integrated Apache Spark solution that sustains thousands of concurrent users running real-time analytical queries and cuts down data latency from days or hours down to being non-existent. A real-time Streamliner pipeline is used to channel temperature and vibration input from millions of sensors on turbines located across the globe.

PowerStream projects and provides insight on the health of turbines with data and a machine learning algorithm. A healthy turbine appears green while one that is bearing the brunt of severe weather, software malfunctions or requiring maintenance appears red. Once the requirements of individual turbines are ascertained in real-time, insight is provided on performance towards enablement of remote software repairs and subsequent delivery of a spare part by drone to the repairman in order to restrict downtime.

MemSQL CEO and co-founder, Eric Frenkiel, said: “The world is amassing more data than many businesses are equipped to handle and companies need to prepare for real-time opportunities today. With MemSQL Streamliner, we're bringing information into the light of day to help companies boost their bottom line regardless of industry, market or segment.” in hearing industry leaders discuss subjects like this and sharing their IoT use-cases?
