Based in Houston, Texas, Unix Edge designs, builds and operates Managed Solutions that combine cloud platforms and Edge Devices to deliver tangible business value in the form of actionable, real-time information. Unix Edge Devices collect virtually any data from any location. They support analog, digital and optical sensors including GPS, temperature, pressure, humidity, hall effect, proximity, and even analog gauges.
Unix Edge wanted to build a reliable fleet surveillance solution to collect performance metrics for the industrial machines at their customers’ chemical plants and refineries. For the oil and gas industry, real-time remote equipment monitoring is critical given the high cost of machinery downtime and dispersed geographical locations. Unix Edge meets that need by providing specialized Edge Devices to their customers that support analog, digital and optical sensors including GPS, temperature, pressure, humidity, hall effect, proximity, and even analog gauges. Unix Edge stores the data collected in an InfluxDB database and uses Grafana to build custom dashboards for their customers, delivering cost savings, added efficiency, and improved safety.

“If I were to describe InfluxDB in three words, I would say: performant, flexible and cooperative.”
- Frank Inselbuch, President, Unix Edge
