The Internet of Things (IoT) is starting to transform how we live our lives, but all of the added convenience and increased efficiency comes at a cost.
The IoT is generating an unprecedented amount of data, which in turn puts a tremendous strain on the Internet infrastructure. As a result, companies are working to find ways to alleviate that pressure and solve the data problem.

Cloud computing will be a major part of that, especially by making all of the connected devices work together. But there are some significant differences between cloud computing and the Internet of Things that will play out in the coming years as we generate more and more data.

Below, we've outlined the differences between the cloud and the IoT, detailed the role of cloud computing in the IoT, and explained "fog computing," the next evolution of cloud computing.

Role of Cloud Computing in the Internet of Things

Cloud computing and the IoT both serve to increase efficiency in our everyday tasks, and the two have a complimentary relationship. The IoT generates massive amounts of data, and cloud computing provides a pathway for that data to travel to its destination.

Amazon Web Services, one of several IoT cloud platforms at work today, points out six advantages and benefits of cloud computing:
- Variable expense allows you to only pay for the computing resources you use, and not more.
- Providers such as AWS can achieve greater economies of scale, which reduce costs for customers.
- You no longer need to guess your infrastructure capacity needs.
- Cloud computing increases speed and agility in making resources available to developers.
- You can save money on operating data centers.
- You can deploy your applications worldwide in a matter of minutes.

Some of the more popular IoT cloud platforms on the market include Amazon Web Services, GE Predix, Google Cloud IoT, Microsoft Azure IoT Suite, IBM Watson, and Salesforce IoT Cloud.
