Ignition history VS Canary


I'd really like to understand with having low Ignition History, why people like to use Canary with Ignition.
I mean for normal applications with less than 50K tag changes per second.

I haven't used Canary, although we've started adding it to some quotes where customers are asking for a more robust historian, or have special requirements like immutable data storage.

We have a lot of customers who are used to OSI Pi or need more features than what Ignition's historian provides, either due to dashboards at a corporate level, Excel add-ins, or regulatory requirements where the data has to be encrypted/immutable.
