AVEVA
Paired with Citect SCADA or System Platform, this is an excellent process historian. It also works well collecting OPC data. For basic data storage, retrieval, and analysis, this is well suited. This is not well suited for very large deployments. Multiple instances would need to be used to scale up, and the data fed into a second-tier/enterprise historian for corporate user consumption.

Works very well in applications designed for IoT devices where performance and footprint are of great importance.

Pros
AVEVA
  • Data storage--multiple data sources stream data in real time; it is stored without issue
  • Data retrieval--small to moderate queries and trends are generally fast and efficient
  • Cost effectiveness--it is one of the cheaper (non-enterprise) historian offers and therefore is good value for money (with a reduced feature set)

  • First of all the performance of RDM was superior compared to SQLite in my multi-user environment (about 200 users). The pricing was surprisingly good compared to other high-performance databases.
  • Decreased time to market, a faster and more performant application overall and lower maintenance costs.
  • They run on most RTOS and can be used in a cross-platform environment.

Cons
AVEVA
  • Query performance--for very long-term/large queries; the latest version which we are yet to commission has some improvements in this area
  • User interface--the trend, query, and Excel add-ins are basic and could do with a refresh; web-based clients are a paid add-on and less full featured, so not a true replacement
  • Connectivity--Wonderware System Platform driver packs are required for additional data source types, where native connectors are not provided by other products

  • I would like to see REST API with a GUI for administration

AVEVA Historian, formerly Wonderware, was the best of the process tier historians in terms of reliability and functionality. It is still under development and not a "dead" product. It is also more cost effective than the more full-featured enterprise historians, such as PI, which our organization is not yet ready for. The feature set is at the right cost level, coupled with current support, were the key factors in the decision.

RDM performs way better than SQLite when the database is larger and has multiple users.
