Guest blog article from Guennadi Moukine, Acronis! If you’re not already scheduling regular system backups for your Apple Mac, it’s time to do it. Now. It’s a small bit of insurance invested to protect against data loss and operational continuity disruption. If you are performing scheduled backups, make sure you are fully protecting your […]
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be looking at some significant engineering investment.
On-demand, serverless computing enables developers to try out a fleet of devices on IoT gateways with ease. With a sensor simulator built on top of AWS Lambda, it’s possible to elastically generate device sensors that report their state to the cloud.
