The development of cloud computing technology mainly produces various facilities. One of them is the Internet of Things. IOT is a concept that aims to extend the benefits of following internet connectivity data sharing capabilities, remote control and other capabilities share included in the objects that have not occurred to us. Now all the objects even living beings can be connected to the Internet via sensors embedded in it and was always "on".
IOT refers to objects that can be uniquely identified as Virtual representation; in internet-based structure. Microsoft Azure utilizing this technology to pull through an experimental weather balloon to fly up to an altitude of 100,000 feet and then communicate. The main purpose of the flight was made on February 23, 2016 to test the ability of the Internet of Things (IOT) of the Azure, Cloud services from Microsoft.
Cloud computing is a unique viewing experience from the end of outer space
Prior to this, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft's cloud computing services, have already done a similar experiment on January 28, 2015 by flying a balloon Meteorological equipped with sensors, radio and video. Air balloon is named Pegasus I. The name was chosen because in Greek mythology, Pegasus was a winged stallion name who is the son of Poseidon and Medusa in Greek mythology. Unfortunately Pegasus I experienced some problems such as the loss of contact and other problems. Regardless of the flight experiment can be a success.
Learning from the experience and problems encountered flying Pegasus I. Micrososft back trying broadcast Pegasus II are considered to have a better ability. One of them is equipped with real time capabilities of Microsoft Azure Azure services IOT and Stream Analytics.
Flights Pegasus II aims to:
Trying telementri capabilities, the technology that allows remote measurement and reporting of information to the system designer or operator) in real time.
Trying communication skills, in-flight Pegasus II Microsoft Azure invites the general public who like exploration well technology to witness and try to communicate with the Pegasus II when flown also receive short messages from Pegasus II after air balloon successfully reached the edge of outer space.
Pegasus II is not the end of IOT technologies and cloud computing. This is a step that became the beginning of the new technology. Cloud computing and IOT will change our behavior in all things, especially how to deal with and do it. The question now is, are you prepared to deal with it?
