IoT cloud services, such as those offered by Microsoft Azure or Amazon, are complex and therefore not ideal platforms for developers who work in the Raspberry, Arduino and Co. environment. The Arduino development team therefore offers its target group with the Arduino Cloud, an in-house variant of cloud computing for the Internet of Things, which differs conceptually from the big competitors in a few points.
The latest non-hardware tool is a web service known as Arduino Cloud, which sees itself as a low-threshold variant of IoT Hub and Co. Arduino consistently aligns its product to the needs of home users and small businesses. This results in some conceptual changes – for example, users have to get along without implementing the MQTT protocol.
As compensation for this, there is on the one hand a greatly simplified data model that is very easy to use and the possibility of assembling attractive browser dashboards with little effort. This article is intended to provide an overview of the possibilities of the Arduino Cloud.
