Amazon Buys IoT Company, 2lemetry
FREMONT, CA: Amazon buys 2lemetry, an IoT startup. A representative from the online shopping and cloud services company has given a statement saying that 2lemetry is now a subsidiary of the Amazon and it would continue its support to the existing customers, reports Ingrid Lunden from Tech Crunch.
2lemetry would be helpful to Amazon Web Services (AWS – the cloud services business of Amazon) in helping its customers with their IoT deployments, enabling them to integrate their IoT devices with AWS in a simple and efficient way.
The IoT data streamed into the AWS can be processed in real-time through service such as Kinesis which can stream data for a 24 hour period of time. Lambda is another service which processes Kinesis streams directly.
The flagship product of 2lemetry, ThingFabric platform, is an open platform which provides multiple ways through which customers can integrate their devices with their Amazon account. It delivers actionable intelligence through real-time processing, post processing, and data storage. It has the capability to scale exponentially, and uses a lightweight protocol for device messaging. The engaging aspect of ThingFabric is that customers can use their hardware and software of choice which leaves no room for vendor lock-in scenarios.
