Overview of this book

With the rising demand for and recent enhancements in IoT, a developer with sound knowledge of IoT is the need of the hour. This book will help you design, build, and operate large-scale E2E IoT solutions to transform your business and products, increase revenue, and reduce operational costs. Starting with an overview of how IoT technologies can help you solve your business problems, this book will be a useful guide to helping you implement end-to-end IoT solution architecture. You'll learn to select IoT devices; real-time operating systems; IoT Edge covering Edge location, software, and hardware; and the best IoT connectivity for your IoT solution. As you progress, you'll work with IoT device management, IoT data analytics, IoT platforms, and put these components to work as part of your IoT solution. You'll also be able to build IoT backend cloud from scratch by leveraging the modern app architecture paradigms and cloud-native technologies such as containers and microservices. Finally, you'll discover best practices for different operational excellence pillars, including high availability, resiliency, reliability, security, cost optimization, and high performance, which should be applied for large-scale production-grade IoT solutions. By the end of this IoT book, you'll be confident in designing, building, and operating IoT solutions.

The AWS IoT platform

The AWS Cloud provides lots of different services and solutions across many domains. Let's go through the IoT services provided by AWS:

Figure 5.1 – AWS services in the AWS console – Internet of Things and others

In Figure 5.1, we have deliberately used a screenshot of all AWS services, and not just those IoT services that are available in the AWS console at the time of writing this book, to stress the fact we mentioned earlier that when you select an IoT platform from one of the hyperscale cloud providers, you also get a huge set of other interesting services that you will need when building a complete E2E IoT solution.

For example, in Figure 5.1, you will see about 22 machine learning services and 15 analytic services; under database services, you will see all the different database options that you might need, and the same can be said under storage services, application integration, and so on.
