Edge2Web Flow Server subscriptions enable you to start small and grow with data usage
Build powerful server-side applications using Edge2Web's visual development tools, then schedule and deploy those applications with using Flow Server's admin console. Edge2Web Flow Server pricing is based on the number of monthly data calls made by your server-side apps.
* Edge2Web Flow Server can only be purchased as an add-on to Edge2Web Director at this time.
Frequently Asked Questions
Monthly data calls are the number of calls your Flow Server apps make to the MindSphere platform and any external REST services. Data calls can perform either a read or a write operation. Thus, a call to retrieve a timeseries from MindSphere is one data call, and a call to write an event to MindSphere is likewise one data call.
Your Flow Server subscription defines the number of monthly data calls that can be executed by your server-side applications.
Maximum concurrent memory is the total memory consumed by all Flow Server tasks executing at a point in time. Thus, three Flow Server tasks that consume 1GB memory each will consume 3GB of memory when they are scheduled to run at the same time (or at overlapping times).
Siemens charges MindSphere "operators" for data that flows through their operator tenants. As a MindSphere operator, Edge2Web effectively pays Siemens for the data that drives your Flow Server apps. Your Edge2Web subscription defines the amount of data you can use each month.
If you need additional data capacity, we offer a Data Upgrade pack that allows you to double the amount of data traffic provided by your base subscription plan. Please contact us for more info and pricing for the Data Upgrade pack.

Yes, absolutely. An Edge2Web Enterprise subscription gives IoT Value Plan developers access to all of Edge2Web Flow Server's visual design tools, including the Flow Editor and Flow Server admin console. Your developers can build and deploy fully functional Flow Server applications directly from your IoT Value Plan account.
MindSphere is a big platform, and Edge2Web supports the vast majority of service APIs available on the platform. Wherever the MindSphere APIs provide bi-directional (read-write) access, Flow Server applications can perform bi-directional operations. The services your applications will use most frequently are:
- IoT & Storage services include MindSphere Timeseries, Timeseries Aggregates, and File storage.
- Analytic services include Anomaly Detection, Signal Validation, Signal Calculation, Trend Prediction, Event Analysis, and KPI Calculation.
- Advanced services include Asset Management, Event Management, Notification, and Data Flow.
