As utility companies continue to track usage, consumers are growing equally cognizant of individual energy use as well, especially with the growth of private alternative energy practices such as home solar panels or wind power. That's why this week's IIoT top news is focused on the utility technology of tomorrow. This practice of selling privately generated energy back to the smart grid is in its infancy, but consumers now expect device connectivity to track, say, the amount of energy used by lights or the refrigerator during nighttime, off-peak hours.

Then in 2013, they decided to open source RocksDB. Last evening’s speaker in an earlier post on November, 2013 had said, “Storing and accessing hundreds of petabytes of data is a huge challenge, and we’re constantly improving and overhauling our tools to make this as fast and efficient as possible.
