1. SIMATIC Process Historian 2014

SIMATIC Process Historian is a central archiving system for storing long-term process data, such as process values and alarms. The Process Historian uses Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 64-bit and archives historical data originating from WinCC/PCS 7 or SIMATIC BATCH OS. The data can belong to different WinCC or PCS 7 projects. Access to the historical data is transparent for the OS clients.

The Process Historian scales the PC hardware used correspondingly to increase archiving performance with additional hard drives and memory.
