High Performance, Real-time Data Architecture for the Internet of Things
GridGain
Over the last decade, Internet of Things (IoT) adoption has exploded. Today there are more connected
devices than people. These devices range from smart phones and wearables, to connected vehicles, to
industrial equipment, and more. By 2020, Gartner expects the IoT to have over 20 billion connected things,
a conservative estimate compared to other analysts.

The information generated by billions of connected devices requires an enormous amount of real-time
processing and storage. Some connected cars now upload 25GB of data per hour. A connected airplane
can generate a petabyte a flight. But to realize the benefits of IoT, you need to decide which use cases to
tackle first. You also need to choose the right architecture and set of technologies that can process large
data streams, identify important events and react in real-time.

Many companies who have succeeded with IoT have solved their challenges around speed, scalability and
real-time analytics with in-memory computing. Across these deployments some common architectural
patterns have emerged. This whitepaper explains some of the most common use cases and challenges;
the common technology components, including in-memory computing technologies; and how they fit into
an IoT architecture. It also explains how Apache® Ignite™ (Ignite) and GridGain® are used for IoT.
