FREMONT, CA: DreamFactory, a developer of open source software, announces that its open-source REST API backend can now be paired with the Intel IoT Gateway to help developers build Internet of things (IoT) applications, reports Darryl K. Taft for eWEEK.

Intel IoT Gateways securely connect legacy industrial devices and next-generation intelligent infrastructure to the IoT. Developers, with DreamFactory’s backend, do not have to build their own APIs to store, process and access IoT data collected by a variety of device types, platforms and interface methods.

“The combination of DreamFactory and Intel can play a significant role in enabling IoT for commercial, consumer and industrial applications," says Bill Appleton, Co-Founder and CEO,DreamFactory. "We share a vision for relieving developers of time spent on building custom interfaces, so they can more rapidly build applications that put IoT data to work for both businesses and end users," as reported by eWEEK.

DreamFactory, on an Intel IoT Gateway, provides secure REST APIs to local data storage as well as remote databases and cloud services. In addition, DreamFactory has collaborated with Intel to develop a tutorial to demonstrate how to set up an Intel IoT Gateway to write sensor data to any SQL or NoSQL database using DreamFactory to enable backend database access, informs Taft.
