AWS IoT Core

AWS IoT Core provides a good solution for IoT services required for IoT application development and for IoT startup companies. AWS IoT platform provides special packages for IoT startups, helps them in lowering costs, and caters to all their educational and training needs. AWS IoT platform is integrated with powerful AI and ML analytics so IoT startups can focus more on device development and less on backend solutions. I don't see any scenario where the IoT Core would be less appropriate.

Azure IoT Edge

It is well suited if you have a production plant and you want to cut down the cost of cloud storage. It is best for medium to large companies if they want to process their machine generated data at their production site and only store the data that is required in cloud storage. It is less appropriate for small companies.

  • It is exceptionally well documented

Azure IoT Edge

  • It works even if there is no internet at client location. It will record all the generated data and only send them to cloud storage when there is internet connection.
  • It allows you to bring cloud functionality down to Edge location in the form of docker container.
  • It also supports two way communication from device to cloud and vice-versa.

Cons

AWS IoT Core

  • At very early stages it might be difficult to understand the AWS IoT console.
  • It takes time to understand the concepts.

Azure IoT Edge

  • We had some trouble such as latency issues [and] connectivity while using Azure blob storage as an Edge Module on Azure IoT Edge runtime, so they should look into it.
  • We were stuck while defining the routes for different Edge Modules on Azure IoT Edge, so they should simplify it and improve the related documentation section as well.

Easy to use. That's the main goal and this nails it. From the user perspective, this is as intuitive as you would expect from an Amazon product. Easily connect and host without a bunch of training and hand-holding. Change management is always part of the process but this was about as smooth as I have seen.

Of course it saves our company resources and time and to the tedious job of sending our device data to Cloud server. Lots of devices communicate with Cloud using the single tool AWS IoT.

Alternatives Considered

AWS IoT Core

AWS IoT Core is faster, easier, cheaper, and enjoyed by our employees more than Microsoft Azure. We selected AWS IoT because we saw an advertisement for it and have used it ever since. We will continue to use it as long as it is around or until we find one that is better.

Azure IoT Edge

It is really a great product. It can help a medium to large production company to cut down on their IT expenses such as cloud storage. We are using it with our IoT based ERP system. Microsoft Azure IoT Edge helps in implementing the edge computing in an easy way and it is free to use.

Azure IoT Edge

  • ROI was high, as we were able to impress our clients with POC of Microsoft Azure IoT Edge with our IoT based ERP product.
  • We were able to perform our POC for almost free, as there no charges for Azure IoT Edge, only minimal charges for storage.
