Best IoT Edge Platforms

In this post you can find a random list of Best IoT Edge Platforms. Edge computing brings data processing, analytical and computational capabilities closer to the edge of a network. In the case of an IoT network these are the so-called ‘things’.  IoT edge platforms help facilitate localized computer processing on IoT devices.  These devices constantly analyzed collected data including devices health stats, actions, and managed and control attached peripherals or sensors. So we can reduce bandwidth usage for IoT devices, respond quicker to malfunction, and reduce overall network traffic.

IoT edge platforms provide containerized modules to deploy on IoT devices, a runtime to execute actions locally, and a cloud-based interface for monitoring and management.

Best IoT Edge Platforms

AWS Snowball

Snowball is a petabyte-scale data transport solution that uses secure appliances to transfer large amounts of data into and out of the AWS cloud. Using Snowball addresses common challenges with large-scale data transfers including high network costs, long transfer times, and security concerns.


Azure IoT Edge

Azure IoT Edge is a fully managed service built on Azure IoT Hub. Deploy your cloud workloads—artificial intelligence, Azure and third-party services or your own business logic—to run on Internet of Things (IoT) edge devices via standard containers. By moving certain workloads to the edge of the network, your devices spend less time communicating with the cloud, react more quickly to local changes and operate reliably even in extended offline periods.


AWS Greengrass

AWS IoT Greengrass is an Internet of Things (IoT) open source edge runtime and cloud service that helps you build, deploy, and manage device software. Customers use AWS IoT Greengrass for their IoT applications on millions of devices in homes, factories, vehicles, and businesses. You can program your devices to act locally on the data they generate, execute predictions based on machine learning models, filter and aggregate device data, and only transmit necessary information to the cloud.


Bosch IoT Gateway

Bosch IoT Gateway Software is a platform-independent, edge-computing middleware that can be deployed on more than 40 types of gateway devices. It runs on common operating systems such as Linux, Windows, mac OS, and VxWorks. Bosch IoT Gateway Software is based on Java and the OSGi modular framework, which enables software to be installed and updated on the fly.
