19 – Optimize the ingestion of telemetry data

How do you optimize the ingestion of telemetry data? Evaluating and optimizing your IoT application for its specific needs, whether telemetry data ingestion or controlling devices in the field, ensures that you get the best outcomes in balancing performances and cost. Separating the way that your application handles data collected through sensors or device probes from command-and-control flows helps achieve better performance.

Follow the best practices and check if your workload is well-designed.
