what's going on at iRIX

druidIn a joint pilot project under the leadership of CKW and supported by iRIX Software Engineering AG, a Big Data Cluster was developed for the processing and storage of large amounts of time series data. The technology used is Druid, which is to be operated in the cloud.  Druid is a high-performance, column-oriented, distributed analytical data system that is also used by companies such as Airbnb, Alibaba or Netflix.  Of particular interest is the ability of Druid to process data in real time.  The pilot aims at the following goals:

  • Building and operating the corresponding infrastructure in the cloud,
  • Testing query and load behavior with large volumes of energy trading time series,
  • Saving data to Amazone S3.

Based on the experiences of the pilot, solutions in various areas of CKW are conceivable.  Wherever time series occur in large quantities and should be analyzed analytically, Druid will be able to add value.
