Designing Production-Grade and Large-Scale IoT Solutions

By: Mohamed Abdelaziz

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.

Section 1: Anatomy of IoT
Section 2: The IoT Backend (aka the IoT Cloud)
Section 3: IoT Application Architecture Paradigms and IoT Operational Excellence


In this chapter, you learned about IoT platforms and their capabilities, the solution building blocks that IoT platforms provide, and how to select the best IoT platform for your IoT solutions.

You also learned about MQTT, the most common and well-known IoT application communication protocol.

To get a practical sense of IoT platforms, we took a deep dive into one of those IoT platforms – the AWS IoT platform. In this chapter, you learned about some of the services offered by the AWS IoT platform, including AWS IoT Core, AWS IoT 1-Click, and AWS IoT Things Graph.

In the next chapter, we will continue our IoT journey by covering the IoT device management domain, and we will also cover some of the AWS IoT platform services in that domain, such as AWS IoT Device Management and IoT Device Defender.
