With the buzzline “Cloud Services for Connected Devices”, Amazon AWS IoT was launched back in October 2015, offering a managed cloud platform that lets connected devices securely interact with cloud applications and other devices.
The platform will provide SDKs to allow product developers to easily connect to the cloud, offer network capabilities to connect to cloud applications, certification for device identification and encryption, and interoperability with AWS analytics tools.
Developers can build applications on the platform that communicate with an Amazon Echo via the Alexa Skills Kit.
AWS IoT is a managed cloud platform that lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices. It can support billions of devices and trillions of messages, and can process and route those messages to AWS endpoints and to other devices reliably and securely. With AWS IoT, your applications can keep track of and communicate with all your devices, all the time, even when they aren’t connected.
AWS IoT makes it easy to use AWS services like AWS Lambda, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon S3, Amazon Machine Learning, and Amazon DynamoDB to build IoT applications that gather, process, analyse and act on data generated by connected devices, without having to manage any infrastructure.
