Optimization of Industrial Process Historian

Here you find the details for the internship named "Optimization of Industrial Process Historian" in the company Factry.

Name: Optimization of Industrial Process Historian
Company: Factry

Factry Historian is used in the process industry to gather data from industrial systems at high resolution in a time series database.
The software consists of a few open source components that Factry has supplemented with, partly open source, own contributions to make it industry-ready.
Our software is used in factories and power plants across Europe and the USA. We have already replaced several historians from big industrial vendors like GE and Schneider Electric.

Our setup can easily handle a certain amount of writes per second. Above that, performance starts degrading.

We would like to at least double write performance.

Proposed approach, to discuss with you:
1. Building test environment
2. Root cause analysis
3. Formulation of problem solving strategies
4. Proof-of-concept of top x problem solving strategies

During your internship, you will work together with our lead developer and solution architect in a fun and stimulating environment at Co.Station Ghent.
