Bob van Luijt: Google’s Answer to the Internet of Things

….Although it is early days, it seems that with the Weave service and the Brillo platform, Google has created another top notch solution.

And as always, the interesting issue lies in the question: What’s in it for Google? And that is obviously the data in its cloud. But even without the Google Cloud, these solutions can be very useful. Because of the software completely being open sourced (including the soon to be released discovery API) it is doable to create an open-source or proprietary equivalent that can be used besides Google’s Weave cloud, something that would be ideal for companies who want to store their data in their own cloud solution.
