What is the DataGateway?

Particle DataGateway captures data from event producers such as IoT devices, games, and web applications and forwards them to a data pipeline for further processing.

Challenges of Event Capture

  • Events must be delivered from producers to the data pipeline with low latency and high throughput.
  • Event payload must be secured end-to-end between producers and processors.
  • Event capture should be able to handle various formats and transports used by disparate event producers.
  • No data must be lost between the event producer and the event collector.
  • Event data should evolve with the rest of your software stack eliminating concept-drift.
