Posted By : Dipshikha Bharali | 24-Jun-2020


The leading cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud also render support for IoT and big data services. That said, a majority of enterprises prefer cloud-based IoT and data analytics solutions to get increased security, flexibility, and interoperability. 


Similar to its peers, Google cloud offers a complete set of tools for IoT app development. Besides, it lets you connect, process, store, and analyze data both at the edge and in the cloud. Google Cloud Platform (GCP) provides scalable, fully-managed cloud services through an integrated software stack for edge/ on-premises computing with machine learning capabilities. It is, therefore, an ideal platform for cloud-based IoT application development to fulfill varied business requirements. Let’s delve into a comprehensive study of the IoT services offered by Google Cloud Platform and its enterprise benefits.

IoT Cloud Services Under GCP

Google IoT Core

Google IoT Core lets you establish two-way communications between end devices and the cloud via MQTT and HTTP protocols. It involves a communication broker that enables global access to IoT data from end services and a device manager that allows deploying, configuring, updating, and controlling devices.


Cloud Pub/Sub

This service works together with Google IoT Core as a device messaging service. It gathers event data globally and takes it further for processing and analytics, allowing temporary 7-day data storage. It is HIPAA compliant and provides end-to-end encryption for data transferring and multilevel access permission.


Some of the most popular products for IoT development in terms of storage and analytics on the Google Cloud Platform are:



BigTable is a NoSQL data storage service build upon the Google File System and stored in an immutable data structure called SSTable. It is capable of handling any amount of data. Furthermore, it can scale up on demand without any specific effort on the user side. 



BigQuery is a fully-managed, serverless cloud data warehouse solution that lets you quickly and effortlessly gain both real-time and predictive insights from big data. It can be used to store and process enormous datasets with the help of several SQL series. Moreover, it has built-in machine learning capabilities.


Cloud Machine Learning Engine

With Google Cloud Platform, developers can enhance IoT solutions with excellent machine intelligence. Cloud Machine Learning Engine allows developers to train their machine learning models with the grand resources of Google and run these models both at the edge and on the cloud.

Benefits of Google Cloud IoT Services

Google Cloud Platform offers a variety of fully-managed services for developing a scalable IoT system. It provides encryption and granulated access control to data resources, solving the security issues in IoT development. 


Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of choosing Google cloud for IoT services:
