MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, Jan 05, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) —
Based on its recent analysis of the sensor cloud computing market,
Frost Sullivan recognizes MicroStrain, Inc. with the Global Frost
Sullivan Award for Product Leadership for SensorCloud(TM), a platform
for sensor data storage, visualization, and remote data management.
MicroStrain leverages advanced cloud computing technologies in
SensorCloud(TM) to provide data scalability, rapid graphing, and user
programmable online analytics for sensor data.
One of the unique features of SensorCloud(TM) is Fast Graph, a
visualization and graphing tool that allows customers to rapidly
navigate through gigabytes of data, and discover points of interest.
However, it is the computational engine feature that really makes
MicroStrain’s SensorCloud(TM) stand out. This feature enables
customers to remotely process and analyze vast quantities of sensor
data in the cloud. As a result, users can quickly and easily create
virtual sensors based on mathematical relationships. Scalable user
options benefit academics, small companies, and large companies
SensorCloud(TM) also offers unlimited data storage with
triple-redundant reliability, allowing customers to affordably access
and preserve long-term sensor data streams. Additionally, the product
collects time data from virtually any type of sensor or web-connected
source through an easy to use Open Data API. All API operations use
secure HTTPS protocols to provide data encryption and authentication.
MicroStrain recognizes that sensor data, by itself, has limited use.
It is the ability to collect, visualize, and perform mathematical
operations on data from assets distributed worldwide — and over long
periods of time — that makes for a rich customer experience.
SensorCloud(TM) expands on this principal with a product that
facilitates enhanced information sharing while giving users the
flexibility to keep their sensitive data confidential.
“MicroStrain added cloud services to its product line so that
low-power, miniature digital sensors can now easily communicate with
the Internet,” said Frost Sullivan Industry Principal Dr. Rajender
Thusu. “This one-of-a-kind technology helps to reduce the cost of
operations and the challenges involved in the process.”
To date, MicroStrain’s diverse sensor product offering has gained
acceptance across a variety of industries including automotive,
aerospace, industrial manufacturing, semiconductor, environmental
monitoring, oil and gas, power generation, civil structures, and
defense. MicroStrain’s products are preferred over competitors’ due
to their incorporation of more sophisticated technologies without
compromising user experience.
To improve its services and product offerings, MicroStrain has
utilized a premier cloud platform provider, Amazon, which provides
scalable and reliable services.
“The core value MicroStrain has gained building on Amazon’s
infrastructure is highlighted by the fact that, in the past year,
SensorCloud has had an uptime of 99.98%, which is remarkable,” said
Dr. Rajender Thusu.
Each year, Frost Sullivan presents this award to a company that has
developed high quality products that offer innovative features and
functionalities. The products enhance customer value and find
immediate acceptance in the market.
Frost Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a
variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding
achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership,
technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product
development. Industry analysts compare market participants and
measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and
extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the
