Amazon IoT vs Azure IoT Hub: What are the differences?
What is Amazon IoT? Easily and securely connect devices to the cloud. Reliably scale to billions of devices and trillions of messages. AWS IoT is a managed cloud platform that lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices. AWS IoT 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.
What is Azure IoT Hub? Connect, monitor, and manage billions of IoT assets. Use device-to-cloud telemetry data to understand the state of your devices and define message routes to other Azure services without writing any code. In cloud-to-device messages, reliably send commands and notifications to your connected devices and track message delivery with acknowledgement receipts. Device messages are sent in a durable way to accommodate intermittently connected devices.
Amazon IoT and Azure IoT Hub can be categorized as "Internet of Things Services" tools.
Some of the features offered by Amazon IoT are:
On the other hand, Azure IoT Hub provides the following key features:
