Microsoft has made its Azure IoT Hub service generally available as it progresses efforts to create an ecosystem play in the IoT space.

Azure IoT Hub is a connectivity and monitoring platform for IoT deployments. It is a component of the Azure IoT Suite solutions, which consist of multiple pre-configured services.

Since unveiling the IoT Suite last year, the vendor has certified over 30 partners to work with it.

The vendor said in a blog post that Advantech, Dell and HPE were among the latest editions to the program, which was set up three months ago.
