AWS IoT Core

AWS iot core is very useful if you need to scale very quickly for managing lots of devices without handling the underlying infrastructure cost. It can enable real time publishing and subscription of devices, monitoring and early stage intervention in case of unexpected issues while developing a full stack solution. However, healthcare scenarios where government intervention is needed should be developed and scaled by following the set of compliance policies of the government and the SLA requirements of the customer. Finally, it is great where you need to do data science research after anonymizing data

Azure IoT Hub

We are using the Azure IOT hub for solving the multitenancy problem within our research project. We are consuming data from various resources and communicating it with different devices on our hybrid cloud. We also use Azure IoT as a bridge between two business Intelligence sources which are really hard to connect devices.

Cons

AWS IoT Core

  • It would be great to have better integration with other IoT products outside of AWS
  • It has been lagging in some of our applications. It's difficult to tell whether this is on AWS IoT or on our implementation
  • It would be great to support a wider range of protocols

  • Hardware and embedded integration could improve or be at parity with competitor.
  • Pricing model not as flexible as competitor.

Usability

AWS IoT Core

AWS IoT Core 8.8
Based on 5 answers
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.

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.

Azure IoT support professionals are strong, and always provide timely responses. Vast documentation and examples are available, plus a network of professionals in the market. It's very comparable to the main competitor offer, and easily integrated into the main Azure product offer. Azure IoT is not a new solution, so it is very mature and support can easily address any day to day or architectural concern you have.

Alternatives Considered

AWS IoT Core

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.

We require Azure integration, data security and simple development. IoT Hub ticked all those boxes.
