HistoriansOSIsoft PI The PI Server is the real-time data collection, archiving, and distribution engine that powers the PI System. The PI Server brings all relevant data from disparate sources, such as enterprise systems, databases, and operational data sources into a single system, secures it so appropriate access is given to individuals based on their roles, and delivers it to users at all levels of the company in a uniform and consistent manner. The PI Server optimizes the data storage to use the least amount of disk space possible while still providing needed fidelity and allows retrieval of any data, no matter how old, quickly and accurately. As a result, users have a comprehensive, real-time view into operational, IT infrastructure, and business activities enabling them to make timely, profitable, decisions.
