The AWS Well-Architected Framework is based on five pillars — operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, and cost optimization. When architecting technology solutions, you must make informed tradeoffs between pillars based upon your business context. For IoT workloads, AWS provides multiple services that allow you to design robust architectures for your applications. Internet of Things (IoT) applications are composed of many devices (or things) that securely connect and interact with complementary edge-based and cloud-based components to deliver business value. IoT applications gather, process, analyze, and act on data generated by connected devices. This section presents an overview of the AWS components that are used throughout this document to architect IoT workloads. There are seven distinct logical layers to consider when building an IoT workload:.
