The Internet of Things (IoT) is closing in fast, it has been predicted there will be 26 billion units installed by 2020, generating $300bn in revenue. These are numbers that absolutely cannot be ignored and the anticipation for this technology boom is huge. A predicted 4.5 million developers will drive this prolific growth in IoT in the next six years and they are all in need of the right technology to support them. But, without putting too fine a point on it, developers without the infrastructure to develop are useless.
The challenges facing the mass adoption of IoT technology are significant, but not insurmountable. In order for the IoT to be a success from an infrastructure perspective, there are three major ingredients: infinitely scalable computing power, the network fibre to support the rapid growth in data traffic and the ability to control where your data is stored.
