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.

AWS IoT analytics

AWS IoT Analytics is a fully managed IoT analytics service that helps you collect, preprocess, enrich, store, and analyze IoT data at scale.

The AWS IoT Analytics service is fully integrated with AWS IoT Core; this is a great feature, as you can build IoT data analytics solutions more quickly using this managed service.

The AWS IoT Analytics service also integrates with other AWS and non-AWS services, and it accepts data from many data sources, so you might use a different IoT core from a different vendor and use the AWS IoT Analytics service for analytics purposes. In other words, you don't need to use AWS IoT Core to use AWS IoT Analytics; however, if you already use AWS IoT Core, then it is much easier to go with AWS IoT Analytics, as it is fully integrated with AWS IoT Core.

Let's see AWS IoT Analytics' main solution building blocks:
