Data Is the New Dinosaur

Data is becoming one heck of a challenge to solve. Take a example of our Product ThingsHiFi- a 5KW Solar Grid-Tie UPS. This device send data every 30 seconds to ThingsCloud. On a daily basis we will have

(30/60)*60*24 = 2,880 insertions

Each data packet is around 6K byte, which makes

2880*6k= 17.2 mb/per day

For one month,

17.2 *30 = 516 mb/per device/per day

You can see where I’m going from here, even if we have a modest 1000 devices, then we will be looking around 500 gigs of data per month. Right now we are exploring different architectures to process this data.¬† Also, inserted¬† record has around 10 values.

So, per month per device it is

2880*10*30 = 864,000 values

Now, with 100 devices, it would be 86 million values, which needs to be queried. Suddenly from nowhere we need to work on big data …!!!
