    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

    1. Node.js is useful for building one page, fast, light-weight, scalable applications.2. It is not suitable for building computationally extensive applications, it may lead to bad performance.

    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

    Node.js

    • It reduce performance while dealing with heavy computational task.
    • Node.js invites a lot of change in code, due to an unstable api.
    • Lack of library support.

    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.

    Node.js is easy and good to use, their support team is also good they always tend to help you, and solve your problem,even we know that Node is free to use and opensource but then also we get support from them but for getting much better results we need to purchase standard or enterprises support provided by them.

    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.

    There is a smooth and seamless performance for multiple requests as the feedback received from users. and uses one platform to maintain UI and backend.

    Manu Gupta | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Node.js

    • It helps our business to expand our standard offer with new solutions based on Node.js such as conversation bots.
    • It brings avarege 2-3 new clients projects per year, that we couldn't do without it.
