ICONICS' Hyper Historian is an advanced 64-bit high-speed, reliable, and robust historian. Designed for the most mission-critical applications, Hyper Historian's advanced high compression algorithm delivers unparalleled performance with very efficient use of resources. Hyper Historian integrates with the latest big data technologies, including Azure SQL, Microsoft Data Lakes, Kafka, and Hadoop. This makes Hyper Historian the most efficient and secure real-time plant historian for any Microsoft operating system.
 
With ICONICS' new unified configuration, historian tags can be created quickly and easily from the asset database in just a few clicks. This integration allows historical data to be associated within the context of an ISA-95-compliant asset hierarchy. Users can leverage built-in BI functionality to create responsive and fully customizable dashboards to organize and drill into an asset structure's history. Complex calculations can be performed with data, looking for trends or abnormalities, creating running averages, smoothing out rough data, and more.
 
Hyper Historian helps to ensure that no data is missed with redundant logger and remote collector functionality. Collectors can live at remote sites next to the data source, storing data and forwarding it when a connection is available. Loggers can run redundantly, keeping synchronized copies of valuable data to protect against hardware or network failure.
 
“ICONICS is honored to have been named a 2021 Engineers’ Choice Finalist for Hyper Historian,” said Russ Agrusa, President and CEO of ICONICS. “This designation tells us that we’re on the right track toward providing solutions to the challenges engineers face everyday.
