Abstract

Huge amounts of data can be collected from smart buildings for accurate diagnostics. However, analyzing, storing and processing this data require huge resources as well as advanced software that implements innovative algorithms for accurate smart building diagnostics. This can be very costly for smart buildings owners. Cloud computing can provide a scalable and cost-effective platform to satisfy these needs. Cloud computing is an emerging commercial IT infrastructure model that offers to eliminate the need for clients to maintain in-house high-cost hardware, software, and network infrastructures. It also reduces or even eliminates the high-cost of recruiting technical professionals to support these infrastructures and operate the in-house IT solutions. This paper proposes a new cloud service that provides some mechanisms for smart building diagnostics that clients, smart building owners and managers, can use. This service is called Smart Building Diagnostics as a Service (SBDaaS). The paper presents an architecture developed for this service. In addition, it discusses the opportunities of utilizing such a service.
