The "data collector" is a lightweight micro-service application that collects and sends metadata, from a system, such as an IoT network, distributed system, data center, etc to a storage system.

  • The data is transmitted and stored and can be retrieved at any time.

  • "data collector" is developed with a platform agnostic" container-based application strategy

A platform-agnostic approach offers many choices

  • Can be seamlessly moved from local development machine to production deployment

  • Flexibility, Reliability

    • Avoiding Vendor Lock-In

  • From Code to full-blown systems

    • from a single container on your local machine

    • to a running cloud native - container-based environment
