Also referred to as “Hot Data” by the industry. Now (Hot) data must immediately be acted upon by the Smart system to trigger alerts, notifications and if/then/else commands.
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.
