Subsystems and crosscutting

We recommend an architecture for IoT applications that's cloud native, microservice, and serverless based. The architecture also supports a hybrid cloud and edge compute strategy as some on-premises data processing is expected. To scale individual subsystems horizontally, we recommend the use of an orchestrator, such as Azure Managed Kubernetes or Service Fabric, or PaaS services that offer built-in horizontal scale capabilities, like Azure App Services.

Remote patient monitoring

Predict and prevent future incidents by combining IoT and intelligence to optimize treatments, using Azure to remotely monitor patients and analyze the massive amounts of data generated by medical devices.

Cloud Computing: Pillar of Modern Defense

Cloud computing supports the Department of Defense (DoD) every day, but some Defense agencies rely on older methods of analyzing data. Many DoD data repositories are also siloed or not well connected. An outdated approach won’t support the different types of structured and unstructured data you’re interacting with now. 


Discover how cloud computing is already supporting Defense agencies in this free white paper. Read more about:
  • Migrating to the cloud to build, deploy, and transform your operations.
  • Taking advantage of rapid performance and speedy access to real-time information.
  • Accessing more data than ever before by leveraging the Internet of Things (IoT), mobile data, and video.
  • Scaling up to meet this data growth more easily and efficiently with cloud computing.
