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 Hub

Extremely robust and scalable, Azure IoT can be easily deployed to manage and run any IoT infrastructure you need - messaging, notifications, business rule engine, machine learning, Artificial Intelligence. It integrates well with broader Azure offerings and other open source tools as well. Security is a pro, and user base is growing. Another benefit is geo availability, especially if you have to support different requirements like GDPR or China.

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.

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

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 Hub

Very comparable to the AWS offer, although brings additional security. Far ahead the rest of the industry, with end to end architecture and feature-set. Geo availability is a plus as well. Pricing could be more flexible or easy to understand - too many different components to consider making it hard to understand - but overall is not expensive
