Does an IaaS architecture also include services such as AWS (IoT) analytics?
I have a question regarding cloud service types (IaaS, PaaS & SaaS).
For an internship, the company I work at has asked me to look into a specific cloud solution. I wish to create a scalable IoT-capable cloud solution for customers. So in turn, I have done quite a bit of research on cloud/edge computing for the past few weeks. However, one thing still confuses me a little.
If I used an IaaS cloud architecture, would I still be able to use services like AWS (IoT) analytics, or would this mean it isn't an IaaS architecture anymore? I looked all over, but I can't find an answer for this specific question. I hoped to find some IaaS/PaaS/SaaS cloud architecture diagrams to gain some clarity, but haven't found these.
Could someone help me clarify this?
Thank you very much!
AWS IoT services are indeed used to create scalable IoT cloud solutions for customers. A typical AWS IoT architecture will combine IoT services (like AWS IoT Core or AWS IoT Analytics) with services for compute (like AWS Lambda), database (like Amazon DynamoDB or Amazon Aurora), and storage (like Amazon S3).
You can find example IoT architectures on our IoT Solution Repository.
I'm not sure I understand the reason why you're looking to classify the services in those terms, which have different meanings to different people. Instead, start from the use case that needs to be solved and work backwards from there to understand the most appropriate solution.
This clarifies it quite a bit for me, thank you very much.
I'm quite new with cloud computing. So I first wanted to dive deeply into it, so I could learn all about it. After asking my question, I dove further into services on AWS, which helped me to further understand the differences between the cloud service types.
As for why I want to classify the services, I was asked to give the company some advices about which cloud solution works best. Therefore, I really want to make sure I fully grasp everything about cloud computing.
Thank you very much for your response and help. I will definitely check out the IoT Solution Repository. This will really enable me to continue working on building an ideal IoT cloud solution for the customers!
