JUMO CLOUD - Cloud-Based Industrial Software

JUMO Cloud is a modern cloud platform for visualizing, processing, analyzing, and archiving measurement and process data. Thanks to cloud technology, it allows users to access their data from anywhere in the world via popular web browsers. This solution is based on the "Software as a Service" (SaaS) model, meaning it is delivered as an online service without the need for installing additional software on local servers or computers. With JUMO Cloud, users can securely monitor several dispersed plants, processes, or locations remotely from a single dashboard, enhancing process reliability.

The main features of JUMO Cloud include:

  • High level of security: JUMO Cloud provides top-tier data protection, utilizing advanced encryption mechanisms and secure communication protocols. JUMO uses an advanced and redundant data storage infrastructure, ensuring high availability and reliability of the systems, while also complying with European data protection standards like GDPR.

What Differentiates JUMO CLOUD from JUMO smartWARE SCADA?

The JUMO smartWARE SCADA process monitoring and control software was developed in parallel with the cloud solution. JUMO Cloud and JUMO smartWARE SCADA are two distinct solutions we offer. Both systems, JUMO Cloud and smartWARE SCADA, are advanced tools for monitoring and managing industrial processes. The main differences between them are:

Data Location:

  • JUMO Cloud: This is an IoT (Internet of Things) cloud platform that enables visualization, acquisition, analysis, and archiving of data. It allows access to measurement data from anywhere in the world via web browsers. Data is stored in the cloud.
  • JUMO smartWARE SCADA: This software solution is designed for process monitoring and control. It offers features similar to JUMO Cloud, but data is stored locally on the client's servers or within their network.

Technological Base:

  • JUMO smartWARE SCADA: It is based on JUMO Cloud, meaning it shares many features with JUMO Cloud but includes additional functions and interfaces designed for SCADA.
    Functions:
  • JUMO Cloud: Offers a high level of security, visualization functions, alarming, planning, global access to process information, alarm management, and more.
  • JUMO smartWARE SCADA: In addition to the functions offered by JUMO Cloud, it also provides more advanced features for process visualization, data analysis, and programming to support production and operational processes.

Security:

  • JUMO Cloud: Ensures data is securely stored, including backup in European data centers in compliance with GDPR.
  • JUMO smartWARE SCADA: Provides local level security, with end-to-end encryption and the possibility of two-factor authentication.

In summary, both systems are used for monitoring and managing industrial processes. JUMO Cloud is an IoT cloud platform, while JUMO smartWARE SCADA is software that stores data locally on servers or within the client's network. JUMO smartWARE SCADA is based on JUMO Cloud and has the same capabilities but expands them with interfaces and functions designed for SCADA. The choice between these solutions depends on the specific needs and requirements of the user. JUMO Cloud is ideal for companies wanting to globally monitor and analyze data from various locations using the cloud, while JUMO smartWARE SCADA is suitable for enterprises needing an advanced, local system for monitoring and controlling industrial processes.

Licensing and Payment Models for JUMO CLOUD SCADA Software

Regarding payment for JUMO Cloud, you can choose between a flat-rate payment or a pay-per-use model. Furthermore, should your needs increase in the future, there is the option to purchase additional storage. JUMO Cloud has been designed in a modular structure, which allows for customization of features and system expansion according to individual needs, ensuring flexibility and scalability of the solution.

Licensing Models:

  • Flat-rate model: A fixed, monthly fee for access to a specified number of features and resources in JUMO Cloud, regardless of actual usage.
  • Pay-per-use model: You only pay for the actual use of resources and features. Costs are calculated based on the number of used signals and the amount of stored data.

Your Benefits:

Flat-rate model:

  • Cost predictability: A fixed monthly fee makes budget planning easier.
  • Unlimited access: You can use all the features and resources without worrying about additional charges.

Who do we recommend this option for? It is ideal for companies with a constant, predictable level of usage and who prefer fixed costs.
