End-to-end encryption is an amazing feature because we use IoT to connect to various devices in order to gather data/ stats in real-time. We're able to publish solutions with ease and at a faster rate because of AWS IoT Core. However, its inability to interact with other IoT tools is a big con that I would like them to improve upon.

    Usability

    Amazon AWS

    After adopting AWS IoT Core in our company it became clear that the whole platform was designed with usability in mind. It not only refers to IoT Core, but also applies to the remaining Amazon services. What we like the most is the fact that every phase from provisioning to maintaining provides great level of usability.

    Support Rating

    Amazon AWS

    I give it this rating because the support is always there if we need help, but they aren't always able to help us with our problems and sometimes have to transfer us to another support technician. So overall, the support for AWS IoT is pretty good and I am very satisfied with it.

    Alternatives Considered

    Amazon AWS

    Azure IoT service provides more or less the same services as compared to AWS IoT core, however the costing of AWS lead us to continued usage of IoT core over Azure IoT services. Also, considering our existing technology stack is on AWS, it was a natural selection for better integration and ease of use.
