Open Source IoT Platform based on OpenStack and Kubernetes

Use case of tcp cloud explains open source IoT platform introduced at OpenStack Summit Keynote at Austin in more detail. First they explain their approach and vision to IoT, technical overview and show two sample use cases.

Introduction

Internet of Things (IoT) is “the next big thing” in cloud computing era. Leading industry vendors present their solution for IoT and interpret them to fit their business strategy. For this reason IoT is abused as a new buzzword for vendor proprietary business solutions. Term IoT can mean almost everything and it even less specific than cloud computing services. The Internet of Things revolves around increased machine-to-machine communication, it is built on networks of data-gathering sensors and actuators connected to cloud computing services that process all the information. It is going to make everything in our lives from streetlights to seaports “smart.”
At tcp cloud we look at IoT in different way than other vendors. In same way we deliver private cloud solutions to our customer, using existing open source projects and extending our cloud service approach to create universal IoT platform, that can handle multiple use cases.

Solution

Find the PDF document below the text where we show a detail about our approach based on
• Open source software
• HW and vendor independence
• Interoperability
• Sensors and IQRF Network
• Gateways, Internet
• Datacenter and Visualizations
We explain there also our Smart City Prototype.

Conclusion

We tried to briefly explain our vision and prototype deployments of tcp cloud IoT platform. Currently we are working on detail design for whole Smart City solution.
We got a great response from community after having life showcases at OpenStack Summit in Austin and KubeCon in London this year. Our concept seems to be accepted as a possible way of dealing with security, resiliance and performance concerns of IoT platforms and lot of technology partners want to join us in our effort and extend our IoT platform to their solution. We are now starting on concept Industry 4.0 to create first Smart Factory based on open source projects.
If you want to see IoT in action, you can register for OpenStack Day Prague where we show again live presentation with our industry partners.
If you are interested in any kind of cooperation let us know or follow us on twitter and check blogs (sources are in the PDF below).
