IoT Gateways have joined Microsoft's Azure
Eurotech has joined Microsoft’s Azure Certified for IoT program. Eurotech IoT devices certified by Azure allow customers to get an ecosystem of devices and platforms, which definitively ensures faster time-to-production. Four Eurotech IoT devices are now Microsoft Azure certified for IoT: ReliaGATE 10-05; ReliaGATE 10-11; ReliaGATE 10-20; and ReliaGATE 20-25.
These Java programmable devices support a wide range of industrial protocols and certifications, making them ideal for industrial and IoT applications, from device and data management, to edge analytics.
Eurotech’s Director of Product Management, Franco Potepan, commented on the certification: “We are a strong supporter of ecosystems in the IoT landscape and we are pleased to be part of Azure’s growing network of IoT certified devices. Being part of the Azure ecosystem ensures that our customers can get IoT solutions up and running quickly with hardware and software that has been pre-tested and verified to work with Microsoft Azure IoT services”.
Eurotech has been delivering distributed device solutions involving both hardware and software for more than two decades. This invaluable experience has been made available in a broad portfolio of products and services to both our customers and our partners, which now include Microsoft Azure.
These products are based on open industry standards and were built to specifically address the IoT/IT issues many companies experience. Besides providing a broad range of IoT hardware solutions ranging from CPU Boards and SBCs to fully certified gateways for many vertical applications, Eurotech offers an IoT device application framework called the Everyware Software Framework (ESF), that speeds up the development and deployment of applications and business logic on edge devices.
ESF is a commercial, enterprise-ready edition of Eclipse Kura, the popular open source Java/ OSGi middleware for IoT multi-service gateways and smart devices.
