Store Data

AVEVA Historian captures plant data hundreds of times faster than a standard database system and saves data in a fraction of the space using our history block technology.

The AVEVA Historian is designed to manage the continuum of values experienced in time-series data, along with alarm and event data, providing a single data repository for your operational records.

Our storage engine also provides 5x the storage performance over traditional relational databases.

AVEVA Historian combines front-end, high-speed data collection with time series extensions to an embedded Microsoft® SQL Server® relational database to optimize both storage and retrieval performance.

AVEVA Historian does not store data directly in Microsoft SQL Server tables, but instead utilizes highly optimized “history blocks” technology. This means that you don’t have to purge your database as the size of your database grows – ever. You can move or transfer history blocks using Windows Explorer®. History block setup is improved so system management is easier than ever.

Capture Data

AVEVA Historian captures the complete data record (process, alarm, events) with its fault-tolerant data acquisition system.

It is ideal for SCADA, geographically dispersed facilities or other applications that use slow or intermittent data networks.

AVEVA Historian can acquire and store data collected by remote terminal units (RTUs), providing more complete data records for SCADA operations.

History Replay

The history replay feature allows any process graphic hosted in the InTouch OMI industrial visualization platform to easily be redirected from real-time data to historical data for improved analysis of your process through the SCADA Playback feature.

Data in the Cloud

Whether you are looking to move your industrial data storage to the cloud as a managed Software as a Service (SaaS), or to complement and extend existing on-premises investments, AVEVA InSight is an affordable option.

For customers wishing to host their Historian architecture in the cloud, we also offer AVEVA InSight — an industrial information management solution that makes data accessibility and analysis simple. Anywhere, anytime and on any device.

Another feature enabled by AVEVA InSight is the ability to send key data to a mobile device. This allows users to access KPIs on the go and create personalized alerts. Do you want to know when the line has stopped for more than five minutes? What about a critical asset that is in a high temperature state? Simply ask the question and get the answer.
