You go to the doctor regularly for a checkup. But when is the last time you checked the health of your OSISoft PI Historian ™?

Data generated by your sites’ automation systems is vital for Optimization and Maintenance. To enable these activities, the data must be historized. But when the data is lost, corrupted or unreliable your business is not able to extract the value. The culprit is usually a poorly performing or misconfigured historian. Hence it is important that your historian is also being Optimized and Maintained!

Critical Vector is offering Health Check Reports for OSIsoft PI (TM) to address this concern. PI is one of the leading market historians, but all installs can deteriorate if they are not maintained.

Our industry experts can check your system for several items:

  • server and node health,
  • data storage and quality,
  • security threats,
  • version life cycle,
  • and several other areas of concern.
Your report will include a summary of the Health Check. Management will be able to easily see issues, and IT will have details of the items found.

Critical Vector is offering you a 15% discount for small systems (a single server and one node) and a 25% discount for large systems (a collective with multiple nodes) on our Health Check Report. Offer extended till July 30th.  Contact us now for a quote on Critical Vector’s Health Check Report.
