RTI Presents "The Rise of the Robot Overlords: Clarifying the Industrial IoT Part 4: Why a Databus is so Unique" Complimentary Webinar

RTI Chief Executive Officer to Discuss the Importance of Databus Implementation in the Industrial IoT

SUNNYVALE, Calif.— September 24, 2018—Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity company, today announced it is hosting a complimentary webinar, "The Rise of the Robot Overlords: Clarifying the Industrial IoT Part 4: Why a Databus is so Unique."

The rise of connected computing will rewrite vendor relationships, redefine profitability and re-imagine delivery from environment to cost to product. Today’s system designs must last decades. Engineers in every industry will have to find a way to leverage the impending change in compute power and networking.

This future is exciting, but it requires a radically different architecture. The Internet’s "connect-to-the-cloud" design works for phones or computers talking to business systems. But most of those connections are simple; your phone or computer talks to an application running in the cloud. There’s little communication between endpoints on the edge. Most connections can tolerate slow interactions at human speeds measured in seconds. This design doesn’t work for the thousands or millions of devices that have to communicate at physics speeds in the IIoT.

The technology that can handle this is called a databus. A databus is data-centric like a database, but is unique because it communicates future information instead of storing and retrieving old information. Data centricity, in either case, is transformative and compelling. Just as databases today run essentially everything in the enterprise, databuses are a perfect fit to many of the “autonomy” challenges in the IIoT. They enable shared data between thousands of applications at full network bandwidth with extreme reliability. Databuses are key to the future of intelligent distributed systems.

In this fourth webinar of the series, RTI’s Chief Executive Officer, Stan Schneider, will dive deep into databus design. He will explain how a databus can scale to huge systems, span sensor to cloud, provide ultra-reliable operation, communicate at top speeds and adapt to changing environments. This webinar will also explore unique implementation features like serverless execution, and will illustrate the design principles with real examples in giant hydropower dams, hospital connected medical devices and NASA’s critical launch control system.
