CenturyLink Cloud Application Manager

It was very good to use in small scale projects. Considering the high end projects with many instances and multi-platform architectures, it is better to test before the application is deployed. I think few of the questions can be general - who are the system users and what size is the application focussing on? How much resources are required? Will the application require any additional services?

Using for device tracking on the shopfloor and event monitoring:- Smooth deployment, easy to couple to devices.- Easy cooperation with splunk, that we use also.- Finally after connecting to deviced (machine data logs), quick definition and implementation of application- Intuitive environment, easy querying.- Can handle virtually any data type we found.- And it works in cloud - a major benefit in our setup.

  • Until now can not think of any. Data acquisition was a problem initially - solved by connection server and splunk.

Alternatives Considered

CenturyLink Cloud Application Manager

Appfog was one of the requirements of our project since it was the fastest growing PAAS provider. Also it was easy to deploy an application with multiple options to choose for the development environment for our application. It was "ALL in ONE."

  • We do not track ROI on this client project. No negative imapacts - this is a monitoring initiative, we do not plan or control the production.
  • The IoT stream just started in 2016.
  • Successful is a use case in preventive maintenance (health monitoring of production assets on selected production lines).
  • A potential improvement achieved in area of product painting / we aim at saving rework on the paint shop line (a percentage of products has to travel on not-optimial routes, due to outages on some robot work places)
