Overall Satisfaction with AWS IoT Core

AWS IoT is used to develop and prototype IoT devices. Recently, I have been prototyping an IoT device using a Raspberry Pi, and I decided to choose AWS IoT Core for the cloud solution. Basically it is used by IT departments and the technicians used this to communicate with IoT-based applications. By hosting on the cloud and using AWS, our processes have improved dramatically. Increased speed, reliability, and ease of maintenance. AWS IoT has also helped streamline device management and has allowed more free time for our IT folks. Data analysts of the QA department can now quickly analyze data coming from the sorting machine sensors.
  • Helps us to test the functioning of devices, and you can create custom applications that communicate with your IoT devices and send data to cloud server.
  • Makes it easy to use other Amazon services like Lambda and S3
  • Its SDK is available on most of the platforms.
  • High security standards during data transmission
  • Monitoring and real-time dashboard features could be improved.
  • Sometimes the server hangs and hence is not able to send data to cloud services.
  • At very early stages, it might be difficult to understand the AWS IoT console.
  • IoT Device Management
  • Data Security
  • IoT Analytics
  • It helps us to manage resources centrally using cloud services.
  • AWS IoT Core has lowered the cost of device development and data management.
  • Support cases number have gone down since we migrated to AWS IoT Core.
It turns out that AWS IoT Core is the most mature solution on the market with the best variety of integration tools available. On the downside, it is not the cheapest platform existing out there. Amazon IoT Core is easy to start and set up, and our prior engagement with Amazon for AWS was a factor to go with AWS IoT Core. Other products are also good, but Amazon IoT Core has met all of our expectations. We prefer Amazon storage and content delivery S3 services rather than Microsoft Blob Storage.

Do you think AWS IoT Core delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with AWS IoT Core's feature set?


Did AWS IoT Core live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of AWS IoT Core go as expected?


Would you buy AWS IoT Core again?


AWS IoT Core provides a good solution for IoT services required for IoT application development and for IoT startup companies. It is very flexible which means it supports almost any type of IoT device which then can be configured to your customer needs. The speed, access, and ease of use are awesome. While there was and is some change management required to make this leap, it is worth it. It might not be a best option for low-end IoT devices.
