FlexiHub

We’ve put FlexiHub through its paces to see if it’s any good for remote vehicle health checks. We tried the app out with a handful of USB devices for car diagnostics and so far, everything is going smoothly. We also worked to develop an iOS app for remote diagnostics. Our testers from another office easily connected over the Internet thanks to FlexiHub. FlexiHub works perfectly in UDP connections, and needs an Internet connection. But there is no opportunity to work over LAN. This can be an issue.

Azure IoT Central

Microsoft Azure IoT Central has native integrations with Visual Studio (like pretty much all Microsoft products) making it pretty simple to publish apps to Azure App Service, where you can host all sorts of different applications. It does a really good job of storing large amounts of data (for instance, collected from IoT devices with various sensors) and it gets stored to multiple DBs. Azure IoT Central could improve by adding more customizations, as this would make troubleshooting the products easier and make future costs smaller and easier to predict.

Azure IoT Central

  • They could add more variations to their pricing, make it more flexible for smaller projects with limited budgets, more pricing plans basically.
  • Integration of IoT hardware and embedded systems could do with minor improvements
  • Documentation for logs could be a bit more detailed, like the rest of the docs.
  • I wish they could add more security options, as leaving it by the default values opens up too many vulnerabilities.
  • Add support for more operating systems, especially the not so mainstream ones, like Huawei Harmony, as their devices are widely used in certain parts of the world.

I haven't used any similar product, but I have heard about Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud capabilities. I don't know how would Azure stack up to them.
