The Azure IoT Gateway SDK provides more control over the solution edge by allowing developers and ISVs to build and deploy code to integrate legacy devices or incorporate new business logic and workflows for handling data as soon as it’s collected from the device. Microsoft today announced that they are adding support for Azure Functions to the IoT Gateway SDK. With Azure Functions integration, developers can easily call cloud-based logic from their IoT gateway. Developers can write an Azure Function and can call it from a Function Module in the Azure IoT Gateway SDK.
For example: if something goes wrong in your field gateway environment, such as local devices that can’t connect or misbehave, and you want to upload diagnostic information to your Azure IoT solution for inspection by operations, our new Functions integrations makes this simple. Just create an Azure Function that takes this data, stores it and alerts operations – and then call it from your gateway running the Azure IoT Gateway SDK when you encounter a problem.
