Eclipse Kura recently celebrated its 5th birthday and ever since its early days, it has proven to be a very versatile and open framework for connecting IoT devices to enterprise systems. Thanks to the modularity of the Kura framework, gateways can be connected to a wide variety of backend servers, from barebones MQTT brokers such as Eclipse Mosquitto to more complete IoT platforms such as Eclipse Kapua, Azure IoT, and many others.
As more and more IoT solutions are moving from the “proof-of-concept” stage to large-scale deployments, providing state-of-the-art end-to-end security, scalable “zero-touch” provisioning of devices, and full integration with ‘digital twin’ concept is becoming increasingly important. What’s more, IoT solutions need to integrate with existing enterprise applications that are often already deployed in public cloud environments.
In this talk we will be looking at some of the challenges of deploying an IoT solution at scale, and we will show Eclipse Kura and its built-in support of the Azure IoT platform can tremendously accelerate IoT deployments by providing IoT solution developers with the best of open-source and commercial worlds: openness and extensibility of the gateway framework, combined with the flexibility and reliability of a commercially supported PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) environment.
A live demo will feature seamless provisioning of an industrial-grade Eurotech multi-service IoT edge gateway equipped with a TPM 2.0 module onto Azure IoT. We will be showing how easy it is to leverage Kura’s web-based rapid programming environment – Kura Wires – to develop a full-fledged IIoT edge application that interacts with industrial equipment, and synchronizes the device twin with Azure IoT.
