Also referred to as “Warm Data” in the industry. Near (warm) data is used by the IoT Smart system to create reports and identify problems across the entire “Thing” system or by each “Thing.”
Data (information) from remote devices and machines is constantly being ingested by the IoT Smart system. In order to process incoming data at lightning speed it must be rapidly organized into three distinct categories – Now (hot), Near (warm) and Archive (cold) data. This structure helps efficiently manage vast quantities of incoming data consumed by the IoT Smart system.
