BUILD YOUR IOT CLOUD SOLUTIONS WITH OUR
IN-DEPTH EXPERTISE IN AZURE IOT HUB
IoT cloud platforms are cloud-based middleware software and considered as the ‘plumbing’ of IoT solutions. They deliver IoT and cloud computing capabilities as a service over an end-to-end platform. IoT cloud platforms provide ready-to-use software components which can be customized to suit your IoT cloud solution with minimal effort.
AZURE IOT HUB CLOUD PLATFORM
Microsoft® announced the availability of its IoT cloud platform, Azure® IoT Hub, in February 2016. Microsoft describes it as “a managed service, hosted in the cloud, that acts as a central message hub for bi-directional communication between your IoT application and the devices it manages”. They claim that Azure IoT Hub can be used to build IoT solutions and connect virtually any device with reliable and secure communications between millions of IoT devices and a cloud-hosted solution backend.
Azure IoT Hub provides several cloud services and SDKs to build end-to-end IoT solutions catering to various real-life situations. These services and SDKs empower you to enable IoT for devices, capture device telemetry data on cloud, run near real-time analytics, trigger alerts, and integrate with external applications, store data and run real time anomaly detection or predictions based on machine learning models. Azure IoT Hub cloud platform is metered on the number of operations between the cloud and devices or applications.
