Microsoft Azure IoT Edge: Extending Intelligence from Cloud to Edge

Mar 15, 2018 |


As Internet of Things (IoT) becomes more prevalent, a swelling pool of data gets generated at the sensor and device level. There is an increasing need for real-time collection, processing and analysis of this data at the device or gateway level i.e. closer to the edge. This is Edge Computing & Analytics, which emulates the public cloud capabilities by bringing intelligence closer to the devices but with a smaller and agile footprint.
Many leading cloud and analytics companies such as Amazon, Microsoft, PTC Thingworx, GE, HP Enterprise, IBM, and others provide IoT solutions and products. However, there is a rising trend among these companies to integrate edge analytics capabilities as part of their IoT platform. Amazon and Microsoft are primarily offering software and services for edge analytics, which tightly integrates with their existing cloud data storage and analytics platform. In this series of reports, we will deep dive into these unique and varied IoT and edge analytics implementations from various vendors.
