Machine to Cloud Connectivity Framework

Connect your on-premises operational technology assets to AWS Cloud for robust data ingestion


This AWS Solution provides operational technology (OT) managers with secure machine and industrial equipment connectivity to the AWS Cloud. This solution automatically deploys and configures AWS IoT Greengrass and provides integration with AWS IoT SiteWise. You can then publish machine and industrial asset telemetry data to AWS IoT SiteWise and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), populating an industrial data lake with machine telemetry to support insights through visualization, analytics, and machine learning. This solution supports both the OPC Data Access (OPC-DA) and OPC Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) protocols, and supports streaming time series data through the OSIsoft PI Web API.



Automate deployment of AWS IoT Greengrass
Automate the creation and configuration of AWS IoT Greengrass resources on edge devices to simplify implementation, helping them get set up and running quickly.
Customize with different secure protocols

Harness robust data ingestion from sources using the AWS IoT SiteWise Connector with either the OPC-DA or OPC-UA protocol, or with the OSIsoft PI Web API. Use this solution as a reference to build secure cloud connectivity for additional industrial protocols based on your factory equipment requirements.

Publish data to multiple destinations in AWS Cloud
Send data to an AWS IoT Core topic or AWS IoT SiteWise for analytics and monitoring, or store your data in an industrial data lake using Amazon S3 to leverage additional analytics and machine learning services. This solution includes a web user interface that allows you to create and manage connections between the industrial data sources and the AWS services.
