The OPC Twin creates a digital twin of an OPC UA server in the cloud and provides OPC UA browse/read/write/method call capabilities via a cloud-based REST interface. It runs on Microsoft Azure IoT Edge in a Docker container and it is fully integrated into the Microsoft Azure Industrial IoT cloud platform. It also supports publishing OPC UA telemetry via the OPC Publisher. For accessing the on-prem OPC UA servers, the site firewall remains closed due to its service-assisted communication pattern via the cloud. Additionally, the OPC Twin is fault tolerant.
