Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly changing the world, from helping manufacturers to determine when parts need replacing, to enabling utility companies to predict regional power consumption requirements. But extracting business insights from IoT data requires context. Temperature changes, humidity, time of year, time of day, the amount of time transpired–all potentially impact your operations, and what your data is really telling you.
Storing all the data collected by IoT sensors and other sources over time provides the context you need for real business transformation. But at what cost? And as the months turn into years, your storage costs will only go up.
Wasabi hot storage costs 80% less than the other major cloud storage providers, so you can afford to store more of your data for as long as you need it. We actively check the integrity of your data every 90 days. And our immutable bucket option protects you from common causes of data loss, such as human error, accidental deletions, hackers, and malware. All this for cloud storage that is 6x faster than Amazon S3.
Internet of Things Cases
From smart homes and connected cities to industrial IoT and telematics. When everything becomes a source of data, you’ll need a faster, more cost-effective way to store it all.
The more data you keep, the more power you have.
Industrial IoT (IIoT) is transforming industries as diverse as manufacturing, healthcare, energy, and transportation. While many applications focus on detecting problems, there’s an even greater opportunity for improving operations and gaining business insights by analyzing and comparing data produced by IIoT sensors and devices over time.
How much data?
A twin-engine Boeing 737 aircraft generates 333 GB of data per minute per engine. An IoT-ready oil and gas drilling rig produces 7 to 8 TB of operational data a day. Connected automobiles can generate more than 1 PB of operational data each day. Clearly, the IIoT has a Big Data dimension that calls for scalable object storage.
Store it all
Up until now, storing all that data–even in the cloud–would have been cost prohibitive. Wasabi’s amazing price point–80% less than Amazon S3–puts that goal in reach. And you don’t have to wait hours for your data, like you do with Glacier. With its 6x faster performance than S3, Wasabi has all the speed you need, whether downloading for analytics or powering real-time applications.
Protect it all
Wasabi takes data privacy as seriously as you do. We adhere to all industry-standard best practices, including encrypting your data at rest and in transit. Wasabi employees will never access your content, and couldn’t read it if they did. You control the encryption keys and who can have access.
2,500 PB of new video surveillance footage every day!
Thanks to the low cost and shrinking size of internet-enabled cameras, video surveillance is playing an increasingly important role in security, criminal investigations, insurance cases, and litigation. In fact, video is the fastest growing data type. IHS Technologies predicts that the global video surveillance market will be worth more than $28 billion by 2018. By 2019, more than 2,500 PB of new video footage will be generated daily.
Hot storage for the red-hot video market
New laws are calling not only for more surveillance equipment, but retention of video footage–often for years. And high-resolution 1080p and 4K cameras mean big file sizes. With Wasabi pricing, retention is no longer a challenge. And at 6x performance speeds compared to Amazon S3, reading and writing large video files is no problem either. The evidence you need is always seconds away.
Wasabi’s immutable buckets also make it impossible for anyone to erase, alter, or tamper with your data in any way, helping guarantee chain of custody in criminal cases. So say goodbye to old strategies, like overwriting footage or lowering frame rates to save space at the risk of compromising crucial evidence. And say hello to Wasabi hot storage.
Verifying where something is or where something was.
A big use of IoT is tracking objects that have wireless sensors attached to them. Hundreds to billions of devices might be emitting location signals as often as every second, depending on the application. The signals form an audit history that allows people to use applications to find the current location of an object or to determine where it was at a certain point in time.
Where were you on the night of…
Public safety organizations, for example, might need to verify the alibi of a suspect based on cell tower pings at certain points in time – sometimes in support of cases that might be many years old. Healthcare workers might need to locate a bed or an infusion pump for a patient. Retailers want to know who has entered their store so they can serve up relevant content and promotions based on individual shoppers’ online preferences and buying histories.
When you need real-time data
All this data has to be stored somewhere. And, in the case of real-time applications like retail, needs to be available at the snap of a finger. With a 6x performance increase over Amazon S3, Wasabi is the ideal solution for location-based data storage. Location data is available where it is needed and accessible to a variety of applications and individuals regardless of where they might be.
Because Wasabi costs 80 percent less than S3, you can afford to store everything over the long haul. For whenever you might need it.
Connected medical devices mean better care, and more data to store.
Real-time diagnostic data from connected medical equipment and home-health wearables promises to revolutionize medicine. Patients with long-term or chronic conditions can be monitored from the comfort of their homes. Instant access to information will speed diagnoses and response times. But perhaps the greatest potential of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) lies in our ability to save and analyze all the data these interconnected devices will generate over time.
Twelve billion medical IoT devices by 2020
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, within the next three years, 40 percent of the projected $117 million IoT industry will be related to healthcare. The IoMT will generate exabytes of additional data, a portion of which compliance regulations will mandate you save. But what if you could store it all? What breakthroughs await when the power of analytics and machine learning are unleashed on vast archives of interconnected medical data?
The new economics of cloud storage
Storing it all may be impossibly cost prohibitive with today’s cloud storage technology. But Wasabi is next-generation cloud storage. Designed specifically for a world of petabytes and exabytes, not gigabytes and terabytes, Wasabi is able to deliver unprecedented performance at unheard of prices. Learn more by reading our
