Inovonics Turns to Redis Labs on Google Cloud Platform to Launch New IoT Data Analytics Products

Redis Enterprise serves as a future-proof technology investment as Inovonics looks to expand its cloud product portfolio and ramp its data analytics operations

Mountain View, July 19, 2018—Redis, the home of Redis and provider of Redis Enterprise, today announced new Redis Enterprise Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) use cases on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) for Inovonics, an industry leader in high-performance wireless sensor networks. To build its new data analytics offerings with as little overhead as possible and closer to the sensors at the network edge, Inovonics turned to GCP as its virtual private cloud, running Redis Enterprise VPC, a fully-automated database-as-a-service from Redis. As Inovonics ramps its data analytics operations, it expects to take its cloud products into multiple markets, leveraging Redis Enterprise as a cornerstone of its technology stack.

For most of its 30-year history, Inovonics has considered itself primarily a wireless technology provider. But with the onset of the big data era, the company quickly came to understand that the unique sets of data collected by its wireless devices and sensors also had tremendous application potential.

Inovonics uses Redis Enterprise on their IoT edge devices to push data to their gateways, as well as from their gateways to their virtual private cloud on GCP. On GCP, Redis Enterprise ingests the data, storing the millions of daily messages coming from Inovonics’ sensor devices and networks, and providing a central view from which the data can be analyzed in the aggregate. Redis Enterprise also stores the application data model so that incoming messages can be correlated with representational information such as sensor location.

“One of our requirements was that we outsource as much work to the cloud as possible,” says Lalit Pandit, software development manager at Inovonics. “Redis Enterprise’s easy compatibility with GCP, as well as its fully managed operations, allow our IT personnel to focus on the analytics, rather than maintaining the underlying environment. Redis Enterprise makes it possible to process a large amount of data generated by connected edge devices, while adhering to low-latency requirements, from millions of sensors every day. With its versatile support for many data structures, Redis Enterprise is perfectly suited to live in our edge devices, providing ultimate flexibility to our developers.”

In addition to its fully managed operations and seamless compatibility with GCP, Redis Enterprise VPC has many other unique attributes that made it an easy choice for Inovonics:

“With Redis Enterprise on Google Cloud, customers gain an enterprise-grade application stack built on the power of the Google Cloud platform, delivering greater agility in developing modern applications even faster than before,” said Rob Schauble, VP IoT and emerging technologies at Redis. “Inovonics is pioneering numerous business-critical use cases with Redis Enterprise as its database backbone. We fully embrace the challenge of providing the performance and stability customers come to expect of Redis Enterprise, while continuing to innovate around the services our clients use, including GCP and Kubernetes.”

Redis will be exhibiting at Google Cloud Next ‘18, booth w1127 in San Francisco, CA on July 24 – 26. Stop by and learn more about Redis Enterprise and Kubernetes.
