Integration with Opto 22

Gain real-time operational insights through a packaged solution from Opto 22, Inductive Automation, Cirrus Link, and Snowflake. Snowflake’s platform offers a multi-cluster shared data architecture that separates compute from storage to deliver a truly elastic, performant, flexible, and affordable solution.

Opto 22 delivers groov EPIC, a reliable, industrial hardware appliance that connects to your plant floor equipment (e.g. machines, PLCs, power meters, sensors, and SCADA software), captures and models its data, and securely publishes it into the Snowflake platform.

Cirrus Link’s innovative IoT Bridge works with MQTT brokers and Snowflake to seamlessly bridge OT data generated from the edge with the Snowflake platform.

MQTT Sparkplug is an open-source standard that reduces communication costs and data storage requirements while improving cybersecurity.

What problems can it solve?

Unique OT-based, packaged solution for operational data ingest to Snowflake.
Combining an industrial server and embedded IoT platform software with cloud-based bridge software removes barriers to capturing and analyzing real-time plant floor data in Snowflake.

No-code solution delivers a quick, low-impact approach to capturing value from manufacturing data.
Most manufacturing data ingest solutions require significant coding to achieve desired results, limiting functionality, requiring specialized skill sets, and causing scaling difficulties. The Opto 22, Inductive Automation, and Cirrus Link packaged solution eliminates these problems with a scalable, secure, no-code approach, shortening time-to-value.

Open standards MQTT and Sparkplug base achieves an efficient, cybersecure architecture.
The MQTT and Sparkplug open standards provide a secure publish-subscribe architecture with automatic modeling and discovery into cloud-based architecture. This architecture dramatically simplifies the integration of plant floor data with Snowflake while maintaining a strong cybersecure posture.
