Greengrass Embeds Amazon in IoT

AWS runs on GHz-class embedded processors

Rick Merritt, EETimes, Jun. 08, 2017 – SAN FRANCISCO - Amazon Web Services can now run on a gateway or even a high-end node for the Internet of Things. Greengrass is a Linux runtime from the Web giant, aiming to extend its reach deeper into the IoT.

The code aims to help businesses speed AWS-based IoT deployments. It uses Amazon's familiar online tools to create programs that run on users' local IoT networks, accessing and analyzing data from local IoT nodes. Since it's part of the AWS family, users can integrate with Amazon's cloud services as needed.

"There's value in processing data at the source," such as quick response and a known security model using AWS authentication and encryption, said Dirk Didascalou, vice president of AWS IoT at an event here. A Greengrass node also can synch a variety of other nodes when connectivity is intermittent, he added.
