IoT places important challenges to distributed systems, since it requires very large amounts of computing power and storage as well as massive scalability.
Devices and sensors generate streams of data across a diversity of locations and protocols. The data usually reach a central platform that is used to store and process the streams. Processing can be done in real time, with transformations and enrichment happening on-the-fly, but it can also happen after data is stored and organized in repositories. In the former case, stream processing technologies are required to operate on the data; in the latter batch analytics and queries are of common use
