Full-scale IoT systems are larger & more widely distributed than IT has ever had to deal with .IoT datasets hold exabytes of data. Moving it all to the core, whether cloud or datacenter, is impractical, so we must store and process data on the edge using a distributed lambda architecture. So there is necessity to have a holistic distributed data management platform to support this approach with that linking core and edge to enable IoT at scale.

Key takeaways:                                                                                                             

  • IoT data is really really big
  • The simple view of cloud computing will not work for very large IoT datasets
  • “Lambda architecture” simply means focusing on the urgent while also analyzing everything
  • We can move lambda processing out to the edge, close to where IoT data is created
  • And therefore keep most IoT data at the edge, forever
  • This is a huge win – moving & storing 99% less data at the core will save lots of money
  • Holistic distributed data management platform is key
  • Enterprise data modeling, end-to-end security and central governance are critical to success with highly-decentralized computing & storage
  • So IoT will require a new, higher level of IT automation
    • Leverage the most-programmable infrastructure & platforms
    • Describe the topology of end-to-end IoT dataflows
    • Describe the infrastructure (cloud / datacenter, edge gateways)
    • Use a smart orchestrator to generate & execute deployment plans
