Aruba Collaborates with Microsoft and reelyActive to Speed the Migration of IoT Workloads to Microsoft Azure without Custom Engineering
Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company (NYSE: HPE), and reelyActive today announced a new open-source data converter for Microsoft Azure that enables IoT device data that is securely streamed from Aruba Wi-Fi access points (APs) to be used by Microsoft Power BI and other Azure applications. Used in conjunction with Aruba’s IoT Transport for Microsoft Azure, reelyActive’s Pareto Anywhere for Azure open-source converter reformats data and units of measurement like temperature and power to be compatible with Azure applications without custom engineering, significantly lowering the cost and time required using conventional integration methods.

Speed the migration of IoT workloads to Microsoft Azure without custom engineering (Graphic: Business Wire)
Integrating data from legacy IoT devices with IoT cloud services can entail months of custom engineering. There are dozens of IoT protocols and non-interoperable physical layers with which to contend, and it is cost prohibitive to replace or retrofit legacy devices with new cloud-native software. This is because data from non-IP based IoT devices need to be securely streamed and terminated in a form optimized for use with Azure IoT applications, a task that may require an expensive gateway. Once received at the Azure IoT Hub, all of the IoT payloads need to be separately formatted for use by Azure IoT applications. If, at a later date, another IoT protocol needs to be supported, then the process starts anew. The integration process can take months, and the cost, complexity, and security vulnerability of hardware gateways can make the economics challenging.
“IoT Transport for Microsoft Azure transforms any Aruba IT network into a secure Azure gateway that lands at the Azure IoT Hub,” said Michael Tennefoss, Aruba’s Vice President of IoT and Strategic Partnerships. “The beauty of the design is that customers can send BLE, EnOcean Alliance, and similar data from legacy or new IoT devices directly to Azure, without adding any gateway hardware or parallel network infrastructure. If business needs change tomorrow, or next year, then new IoT devices can be incorporated, additively, without ripping or replacing any IT infrastructure.”
