Architecture Monthly Magazine: IoT for the Edge

Internet of Things (IoT) for the Edge encompasses so many devices and industries, that we couldn’t
pick just one photo for our cover. We include IoT use cases from manufacturing, fitness, ocean research, and agriculture. And these represent only a fraction of what is possible. By moving certain workloads to the edge, your devices communicate with local compute resources and can respond more quickly to changes.

AWS edge services deliver data processing, analysis, and storage close to your endpoints, allowing you to deploy APIs and tools to locations outside AWS data centers. You can harness the data generated by your IoT edge devices and enable them to act intelligently with AWS IoT services.

We’d like to thank our experts, Olawale Oladehin, Head of Worldwide Solutions Architect – IoT, Maggie Tallman, Worldwide Go-To-Market Manager – IoT & Robotics, and Richard Elberger, IoT Principal Technologist, AWS. We are also pleased to have a contribution by one of our Customers, Jaime González, Chief Technology Officer, Pentasoft. Special thanks go to Ryan Burke, Sr. Application Architect, and Channa Samynathan, Specialist Solutions Architect – IoT, for their invaluable help shepherding this issue.
