The Internet of Things (IoT) is starting to transform how we live our lives, but all of the added convenience and increased efficiency comes at a cost.
The IoT is generating an unprecedented amount of data, which in turn puts a tremendous strain on the Internet infrastructure. As a result, companies are working to find ways to alleviate that pressure and solve the data problem.
Cloud computing will be a major part of that, especially by making all of the connected devices work together. But there are some significant differences between cloud computing and the Internet of Things that will play out in the coming years as we generate more and more data.
Below, we’ve outlined the differences between the cloud and the IoT, detailed the role of cloud computing in the IoT, and explained “fog computing,” the next evolution of cloud computing.

In order for DevOps to marry the cloud successfully, enterprises must address a few core objectives in order for the union to be successful. There should be a continuous process that includes […]
Reducing MTTR is a hot topic among DevOps practitioners. MTTR measures average time for a cycle: problem occurrence, detection, response, and repair. Reducing the MTTR should greatly improve service quality right? Well, not exactly? The metric we should be looking at is this: what is the available time for repair (MATR — maximum available time […]
More than 90 percent of organizations restrict their employees’ access to corporate data via mobile devices, according to a new study by Gemalto featured in SecureIDNews. Respondents noted a distrust of mobile cloud security as one of the top reasons for these limitations. This trend hinders employee production at a time when bring-your-own-device (BYOD) […]
Nanocomputers implanted in our brains that connect to the cloud will usher in a new era of critical thinking and human advancement, Google’s Director of Engineering predicts in a TED Talk.
Ray Kurzweil says that by the 2030s, nanobots embedded through the bloodstream into our brains will create hybrid-minds that combine the current power of […]
Not every organization has moved its IT operations to the cloud, nor should we expect that to be the case. There are legitimate reasons to adhere to the on-premises IT approach, not the least of which is the fact that it assures that your IT infrastructure and all the data in it is under […]
The Gartner Worldwide IT Spending Forecast report predicts fiercer competition in 2015 between traditional on-premise software vendors, pushing expenditure up to $3.8 trillion. It says that spending in the enterprise technology market will reach $335 billion this year, increasing by 5.5 percent over 2014’s figures.
Due to the large number of cloud providers locking […]
