21 – Optimize cost of interactions between devices and IoT platform

How do you optimize cost of interactions between devices and your IoT cloud solution? Interactions to and from devices can be a significant driver of your workload’s overall cost. Understanding and optimizing interactions between devices and cloud solution can be a significant factor of cost management.

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

ID Priority Best Practice
BP 21.1 Required Select services to optimize cost
BP 21.2 Highly Recommended Implement and configure telemetry to reduce data
BP 21.3 Highly Recommended Use shadow only for slowly changing data
BP 21.4 Highly Recommended Group and tag IoT devices and messages for cost allocation
BP 21.5 Highly Recommended Implement and configure device messaging to reduce data transfer costs
