MySQL for the Internet of Things

The essence of the Internet of Things (IoT) is simply interconnected devices that generate and exchange data from observations, facts and other data, making it available to anyone so that we can learn more about the world around us. The IoT is poised to change how we interact with and perceive the world around us, and the possibilities are nearly boundless. As more and more connected devices generate data, we will need to solve the problem of how to collect, store and make sense of IoT data by leveraging the power of database systems.

In this whitepaper, we explore:

  • What is Internet of Thing (IoT)
  • How IoT data is collected and stored
  • How to leverage MySQL in your IoT solution.
