Best Practices

Serving over 1000 backbone and industrial leading enterprises

Changan Automobile - Built a smart platform for querying massive amounts of connected vehicle data and remote diagnostics

Solution Breakthroughs:

  • Data structure ensuring high scalability, low cost, and high stability: Achieved seamless scaling without interrupting normal system operation, enabling rapid capacity expansion and reduction of management and operational costs.
  • Achieved tens of millions of writes per second: Enabled writing and processing of billions of tags from multiple devices, maintaining a stable high-speed writing rate regardless of the data volume.
  • Enabled efficient queries for connected vehicle scenarios: Supported efficient detailed and latest value queries.
  • Met real-time analysis needs: Improved batch reading speed for real-time analysis.

Business Effects:

  • Currently stores over 150 million time series and enables overall data insertion rate of tens of millions points per second.
  • With optimized data schema, a single machine replaced the functionality of 25 previous nodes and maintained high stability.
  • Achieved millisecond-level response-times for single vehicle time range queries (real-time queries) and latest point queries (latest vehicle status queries).
  • Efficiently continuously processed streams of data for 400–500 signals per vehicle within a three-month period, improving data query efficiency for the diagnostic system from minutes to seconds under the same hardware resource conditions.

MCC Cisdi Group - Built the core part of the Water and Soil Cloud Industrial IoT Platform for data development governance

Solution Breakthroughs:
