Hydstra/TS is a time-series data management system that provides you with the tools to build and maintain a first-class ime-series data archive.



The company KISTERS Pty Ltd [formerly Hydsys Pty Ltd, Hydstra Pty Ltd] was founded in 1987 by Peter Heweston. Peter had previously worked with hydrographic data management on mainframe computers while working for CSIRO in the early 1970s.  In 1985 he started on a project to redevelop his ideas on time-series data management. Central to his design at that time was the use of data compression to reduce I/O and enhance performance, and those principles have remained at the heart of the Hydstra software solution to the present day.

Here’s what our clients say...


The Time-Series, Water Quality, and Groundwater components of KISTERS software have proven to be the ideal instruments with which to manage the various types of data that EnvironMine Data Services collect.

Given the diverse nature of data collected at a typical Mine site, KISTERS software can become the ideal working data management tool. In fact, I’m amazed that the product is not more prevalent in the industry. For those of you who read this article, and who are involved with data management at a Mine, I can only recommend that you take a long hard look at KISTERS software before investing thousands (more likely hundreds of thousands) in the development of an in-house database. Why reinvent the wheel?
