Overcoming IoT Disaster Recovery Limitations Using Multiple AWS Regions
Connecting devices and wearables to the Internet for capturing information has become very prevalent over the last few years. When these devices are used or needed for medical tracking, the need to have high availability and a fail-over process is of paramount concern for both the patient and the company charged with ensuring their safety. The challenge for any company attempting to implement an Internet of Things (IoT) solution is trying to find a method that provides high availability andRead more
Cattle Monitoring Solution Using IoT Helps Improve Performance and Efficiency at the Farm
The Challenge ClearScale was approached by agricultural technology company that manufactured tags for livestock health monitoring to assist them in deploying a solution using IoT technologies to capture and process information from millions of individually tagged animals. The original solution the company had implemented involved numerous individual servers scattered in key locations to capture transmitted tag data. Aggregating this data was a challenge, as was actively monitoring, diagnosing, or anticipating animal health based on the information the tags were transmittingRead more

Implementing an Internet of Things (IoT) Solution and Building a Device Emulator on AWS Platform.
The Internet of Things (IoT) describes a conceptual world where devices of all sorts, from your cell phone to your automobile, from the security sensor in your house to the GPS-enabled wearable on your wrist, are constantly connected to the Internet. There, each device stores vital data about itself and the processes it is designed to monitor within a larger world. People or algorithms can then analyze this data in order to identify trends and predict future events, allowing theRead more
