Microsoft today announced a new IoT service: Azure Time Series Insights, a fully managed analytics, storage and visualization service that makes it super easy to explore and analyze billions of events from an IoT solution within a minute. Azure Time Series Insights will help organizations discover hidden trends, spot anomalies, conduct root-cause analysis in near real-time, all without writing a single line of code through its simple and intuitive user experience. Time Series Insights also provides rich API’s that will allow organizations to integrate its powerful capabilities in their own existing applications.
- Azure Time Series Insights enables you to ingest 100’s of millions of sensor events per day, and makes new data available to query for insights within 1 minute.
- Time Series Insights is optimized to enable you to query over this combination of near real-time and historic TB’s of data in seconds. It does not pre-aggregate data, but stores the raw events, and delivers the power of doing all aggregations instantly over this massive scale.
- Time Series Insights enables you to compare data across various sensors of different kinds, event sources, regions and IoT installations in the same query.
“Azure Time Series Insights has standardized our method of accessing devices’ telemetry in real time without any development effort. Time to detect and diagnose a problem has dropped from days to minutes. With just a few clicks we can visualize the end-to-end device data flow, helping us identify and address customer and market needs,” said Scott Tillman, Software Engineer, ThyssenKrupp Elevator. Microsoft IoT Central and the Azure IoT Suite connected factory preconfigured solution both leverage the new Azure Time Series Insights service.
Azure Time Series Insight is available now available in preview in US West, US East, EU West, and EU North regions. You can sign up for the Azure Time Series Insights preview today.
