Industrial Scientific announced the migration of all iNet® infrastructure to Amazon Web Services (AWS), a cloud provider. The demand for live gas detection data continues to grow, and with that growth, there is an expectation of increased data accessibility and analytics. AWS offers the necessary infrastructure to meet these demands by providing a scalable and flexible environment. With AWS in place, Industrial Scientific customers can quickly and easily access critical data from their gas detection program as they strive to save lives.
The iNet® Integrated Solution for Gas Detection includes iNet® Control Gas Detection Management Software, iNet® Exchange Gas Detection as a Service, and iNet® Now Live Monitoring Software. Users can pick the equipment, software, and services that meet the needs and goals of their gas detection program. iNet is used in 81 countries and has helped Industrial Scientific customers keep their workers safe for more than 16 years. During that time, iNet has recorded over 56.7 million alarm events, ensuring workers in critical and high-risk industries make it home.
iNet Control is gas detection management software that provides visibility into a gas detection program. Users can manage hazards, people, and equipment with one simple dashboard from any web-enabled device and receive custom reports that keep them informed, even on the go.
iNet Exchange is a subscription-based service for gas detectors covering repair and replacement. It simplifies operations across all aspects of a gas detection program—gas detector availability, cost, and ownership—by delivering equipment on demand. There is no need to worry about instrument warranties, paperwork of processing the claim, or time to wait for new equipment. Parts, equipment, and shipping are covered, and even damaged instruments can be traded in.
iNet Now live monitoring software provides real-time text and e-mail alerts for gas hazards, panic, and man-down situations allowing users to see and respond to incidents as they happen. A live map helps to pinpoint the location of workers and instruments.
Amazon Web Services provides on-demand cloud computing platforms on a paid subscription basis. The technology allows subscribers to have at their disposal a virtual cluster of computers, available all the time, through the Internet.
“AWS provides the data accessibility and analytics to support our customers as their safety and productivity needs evolve,” explained Raghu Arunachalam, general manager and senior vice president of the Industrial Scientific Digital division.
The solution migration followed the AWS Well-Architected Framework to ensure the applications are secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient.
