GE Partners with Amazon for 'Industrial Internet'

The set of services and technologies being developed by GE for this "industrial internet" are meant to underpin the data processing infrastructure for all of its connected devices, whether those be turbines, jet engines, or other instrumented equipment made by GE.

One such technology is "Proficy Historian HD", which is a Hadoop platform developed by GE for analysing large sets of time-series data generated by industrial devices. This lets GE customers access the company's "industrial internet" through a service layer that allows them to analyze performance of their devices.
