Azure IoT Edge is an Internet of Things service that enables users to carry out data cleaning, aggregation and analysis on the device itself rather than sending raw data to the cloud for processing. It reduces bandwidth costs, traffic and response time.

Not all analytics needs to be done in the cloud, there are emergencies when you need to respond as quick as possible. In that case, a user can run anomaly detection workloads at the edge and avoid transferring terabytes of raw data to the cloud.

Components of Windows Azure IoT Edge

  • IoT Edge modules – They are the containers that run Azure services or users code or third-party code as well. Modules are deployed to IoT Edge gadgets where they execute locally.
  • IoT Edge runtime – It runs on each IoTedge device and deals with the modules deployed on every gadget.
  • Cloud-based interface – It allows users to monitor and manage IoT Edge gadgets remotely.
