Cloud Hosting is now reality for AquisNet air quality monitoring software: Auckland Council is managing its official air quality data in the Cloud. KISTERS Group member HyQuest Solutions cooperates with a hosting specialist and an IT security specialist to operate a dedicated hosting environment for critical scientific data on behalf of Auckland Council.
In May 2015, the Cloud Solution was started with an online water information system covering both quantitative and qualitative hydrology powered by KISTERS technology.
Towards the end of 2015 AquisNet was phased to the Cloud. For the core of the operational AQM system, relevant legacy data have been imported into the Cloud-based system. Real-time data from operational monitoring stations are imported in a daily cycle. Auckland’s data and AQM specialists access the data using the AquisNet REP bowser-interface.
Auckland Council will receive disaster cover through geographic cloud server failover, remote access to their databases satisfying their business continuity, timely application of application upgrades/releases and monthly IT reports of cloud hosted infrastructure and hosted applications.
Auckland Council monitoring staff can simply now focus on their core monitoring activities.
