Azure IoT Hub vs Google Cloud IoT Core: What are the differences?
What is Azure IoT Hub? Connect, monitor, and manage billions of IoT assets. Use device-to-cloud telemetry data to understand the state of your devices and define message routes to other Azure services without writing any code. In cloud-to-device messages, reliably send commands and notifications to your connected devices and track message delivery with acknowledgement receipts. Device messages are sent in a durable way to accommodate intermittently connected devices.
What is Google Cloud IoT Core? A fully managed service to easily and securely connect, manage, and ingest data from globally dispersed devices. Cloud IoT Core is a fully managed service that allows you to easily and securely connect, manage, and ingest data from millions of globally dispersed devices. Cloud IoT Core, in combination with other services on Google Cloud IoT platform, provides a complete solution for collecting, processing, analyzing, and visualizing IoT data in real time to support improved operational efficiency.
Azure IoT Hub and Google Cloud IoT Core belong to "Internet of Things Services" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Azure IoT Hub are:
- device management
- bidirectional communication
On the other hand, Google Cloud IoT Core provides the following key features:
- End-to-end security
- Single global system
- Out-of-box data insights
