Install, configure, and test standard PI interfaces or PI connectors to validate communication with the data source, as well as buffering and configure PI Interface or PI Connector failover, if corresponds.

Deployment Service Requirements

Before starting the Seployment service

we will verify that all the essential elements are correctly installed: The PI Server software package, which includes PI Data Archive, Standalone or High Availability, PI Collective, Asset Framework (AF) (with notifications, asset analysis and Event Frames) and finally PI interfaces.


PIPER will provide the hardware and software requirements for each of AVEVA PI System infrastructure components as applicable. A PIPER specialist will confirm that the hardware requirements are met during the preparation stage. So the acquisition node hardware (API Node) and your operating system must be installed and operational before start with the service.

The Asset Framework server

PIPER performs the PI AF installation based on the proposed and validated architecture with the client, so access to SQL Server (version 2008 or higher, in any of its editions). If there is no SQL server available, it will be installed SQL Express.
