Designing for connectivity to cloud

Before we get to monitoring and managing an IoT ecosystem, there’s one crucial step that we must take first: connecting the IoT devices to our cloud. Gateways and edge computing are solutions to this.

We can’t simply have thousands of IoT devices connect one-by-one to systems in the cloud. First, every connection on itself is imposing a risk of intrusion and with that the risk of a security breach. The solution to this is to have all connections targeting one system, machine or instance that sits in front of the cloud environments, before data of IoT devices is entered to systems that are hosted inside our cloud.

The IoT gateway is such as system. It can be a virtual machine or a service, but in all cases, it serves as the connection point between the cloud and the IoT devices. All data that flows between devices and the cloud environments, will have to pass the gateway. The IoT gateway is the central connectivity and data controller....
