In this first post in this series, I’ll lay out the latest thinking on the high-level structure of an IoT Infrastructure we see beginning to be established. Following installments will cover VMware’s strategy and how I see IEEE 1451 (Transducer Electronic Data Sheets) and the SI Units specification playing important roles.   Certainly, these days there is no hiding from the IoT craziness now flooding our industry. Reasoned estimates vary widely but, however one looks at it, or whichever estimate one believes, within the next five years we will see an explosion of connected devices (the ‘Things’ of the IoT) coming on-line within an emerging new infrastructure. The Things will generate a tremendously large stream of data (this is often referred to as ‘telemetry’); analytics on this telemetry will consume vastly more compute, network, and storage capacity than we have today, and generate trillions of additional value in and to society. Many refer to IoT as the integration of (traditional) IT and Operations Technology (‘OT’). OT is a catch-all term for compute, networking, and storage existing to [...]
