Everything is becoming interconnected as devices we never thought would be on the Internet are now passing cloud traffic. Soon, cars, appliances, and entire houses will be come smarter and cloud-ready.
The concept behind the Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming very interesting. As we become ever more interconnected, the prospect of entirely new types of devices coming online is a very real possibility. The evolving cloud platform must continue to support a growing type of architecture where a number of commodity items such as houses, refrigerators, recycling bins, and cars will begin to communicate with the cloud.
The idea is to interconnect these end-points to create a powerful infrastructure based on efficiency, automation, and the capability to scale. In this article from NetworkComputing, we take a look at what’s making IoT a reality. This includes:
- Software-defined everything.
- Making fog a reality.
- Logical optimizations.
- Learning to scale and automate your cloud.
We’re already seeing a variety of devices push data in the cloud. Have you seen the latest Tesla cars? Tesla already supports HTML5 on its center console. Soon, these kinds of capabilities will expand to even more interconnected IoT end points.
