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

We used in mostly all cases in our company. It is best for beginner users and for getting started for IoT Developers. You can give it to any beginner and they can easily learn in just a few minutes. I can say the best product for the starter projects. Everything is just fab!

Pros

AWS IoT Core

  • AWS IoT Core integrates power analytics and an AI solution for sensor data processing.
  • Great protocol support including HTTPs and MQTT required to connect resource constraint IoT devices to cloud
  • High security standards during data transmission
  • Scalability and a great user community

  • Particle is simple to use and accessible to any user.
  • The servers housed in the data center allow us to respond to any problem
  • Through the interface the data is analyzed in a very simple way.
  • Ideal interface for the exploitation of our devices, computers and mobile phones.
  • The interface for iOTs allows us to interact with the system in a few steps.
  • It allows, among other things, the display of information calculated from the data collected from different iOTs, in an understandable way.

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

  • For Advanced programs, a bit complicated to programme.
  • Pin Limitations (Photon DevKit).
  • Pricing is high compared to others.

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.

Efficient integration of multiple devices very well integrated and with a minimum implementation time.

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.

I have used other IoT Development Modules like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and others. Most of all starter kit doesn't come with WiFi or Cellular built-in. Arduino is a basic module where you have to add WiFi or Cellular manually in it. Raspberry Pi has WiFi but it cannot be used for small or medium use cases, it can be used in advanced and complex systems building and it is costlier.

Return on Investment

AWS IoT Core

  • Gives confidence to prototype iot solutions across lots of devices in little time
  • Ability to meet requirements for managing a variety of communication protocols
  • Learning iot analytics and visualization for faster insights enablement
  • Onboarding devices and managing quickly without building inhouse solutions
