Monitor and analyze real-time IoT data with a distributed cloud

The following scenario is considered for the usecase. In a chemical research plant, the containers containing various chemicals under study are required to be maintained within certain threshold. In our case the minimum temperature threshold is 27°F and maximum threshold is 30°F. Correct and highly accurate temperature control is very important. If container temperatures are too low or if container temperatures are too high, the consequences could be fatal. Hence, a swift action must be taken when the container temperature crosses the defined threshold. If we were to build a solution for this use-case on public cloud, latency could be a real problem. The solution to this problem is the IBM Cloud Satellite. IBM Cloud Satellite is IBM’s new distributed cloud capability. With satellite we can take advantage of the IBM cloud services with industry optimized security and compliance with leading AI capabilities anywhere you need it.
