In line with the trend of the Internet of Things, IBM launched cloud data hosting service

IBM introduced its product under the generic name "IoT FoundaTIon" as a repository for device data, while providing a secure way to share data between services.

Although IBM is hesitant to create a false initial strategy for the commercial model of cloud computing, it is actively responding to the Internet of Things. On Wednesday, it launched a new platform for building IoT-related applications. The platform is called "IoT FoundaTIon," and the idea sounds like data is hosted in the cloud, where you can save the information and then hand it over to trusted peers as needed.

The "IoT FoundaTIon" product is part of the IBM Bluemix platform service and, accordingly, runs on IBM SoftLayer's cloud computing platform. For those who are not proficient in cloud architecture, the Bluemix platform is IBM's developer-friendly cloud, which can be compared to Amazon's Web services. Considering that "IoT FoundaTIon" essentially provides a device to send data services, it can then access the data for use in other business applications.

So the software running on the connected device verifies the device data, encrypts it and sends it to the Informix database on Bluemix, where it can be connected to other services and applications through the application build interface. Developers also have a way to access and control devices through APIs, which means that if allowed, the device can be controlled by the service even if they don't produce the product.

This may be useful if you are a washing machine manufacturer and want to give control of a function that allows it to control the appliance in a demand response event. This feature allows access to APIs to control the washing machine as well as licenses from the washing machine manufacturer or owner. All protocols mediated through the "IoT Foundation" platform are written into the software.

IBM will develop a partner program for the IoT Foundation, along with a set of certification directives (or "recipes") to serve connected devices, sensors and gateways from a variety of partners. Partners will include ARM, B&B Electronics, Elecsys, Intel, Multi-Tech Systems and Texas Instruments.

This sounds very similar to the collaboration between Philips and Salesforce.com in order to collect and access medical monitoring and patient data. Michael Curry, vice president, hopes that through the development of IoT products, IBM envisions developers able to bind device data to services such as Twilio (voice call) and IBM's Waston (cognitive computing).

This approach is a bit different from many other platforms, and it is primarily in the form of a form that helps companies manage device processes online, store data, and repair these devices. Although you can perform these functions through the "IoT Foundation", this is about a way to create a way to perform data and device access in a flexible and scalable way.

This makes the relationship between IoT devices, device owners, device manufacturers, and service providers meaningful, because it will be very complex, and managing them through software rather than one-off contract and physical access will become Very meaningful. IBM will offer a pay-as-you-go model, although its price has not yet been announced. Curry said this will be based on the level of colloquialism of the devices and the number of languages ​​they support.

The IoT Foundation is just some of IBM's products around the Internet of Things. It is used as a guide to the MQTT protocol for the messaging layer between many devices, and it also provides a graphical user interface called Node.red to help with device programming interactions. It even studied the use of blockchain technology - it uses bitcoin behind it as part of a machine-to-machine mesh network.

Curry pointed out that the IoT Foundation is a platform that is only part of the overall architecture of the Internet of Things, which requires edge mesh networks, gateways near the edge, and even major intelligent gateways and services between the cloud backend and the cloud.
