Skkynet DataHub on Azure - The Cloud Companion to DataHub

Optimized DataHub in Azure for Secure IT/OT Integration

When working with your data in Azure with digital twins, data lakes, and any other application you can run on Azure, you still need to insure the best security possible for your production data. 

Available in the Azure Marketplace, the Skkynet DataHub is a Microsoft Azure Managed Application that is optimized to securely receive your data using all of DataHub's secure and robust tunneling capabilities and then integrate it with your on-premise DataHub instances.

Because licensing of the Azure service is consistent with other native Azure apps, it can be more cost effective than taking a full DataHub premise license and paying for an Azure hosted full virtual machine, as you only pay for resources consumed.

You configure the Skkynet DataHub on Azure using the same remote configuration interface that you use for your DataHub.  You'll also be able to monitor your cloud service usage via the SkkyHub web portal.

Unique Security Capabilities & Supported DataHub Features

Skkynet's patented technology for outbound-only connections ensures no exposed attack surface in your plant network. No IT policy changes, no open inbound firewall ports, no VPN, and no extra hardware on your production network.
