Into the cloud – Lift & Shift

Today everything is getting smarter and more intelligent – not just cars, televisions, telephones, toys, kitchen appliances, but even heating technology. Smart home is a concept known for a long time. If you don’t upgrade digitally, you will be forced to downgrade at some point. That is why sometimes Industry 1.0 has to become Industry 4.0 very quickly.

GOD helps with this: We move your systems into the cloud and advise you extensively on the way to achieve smarter products or devices. With cloud consulting and cloud migration solutions, we support one manufacturer of heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment in Salzgitter.

 
The way into the cloud: control heating, ventilation and air conditioning devices via mobile phone

The manufacturer of home automation and heating control decided to offer its OEM partners (Original Equipment Manufacturers) added value through a better structured and easier-to-use app. The app should have been based on a cloud solution – as far as the requirements are concerned.

The goal is to control a variety of devices in the cloud, using a mobile phone app. The manufacturer of home automation and heating control provides the software on the hardware, such as the heating control, another company creates the app and we connect both via the cloud. AWS (Amazon Webservice) is used as the cloud. Each of the devices: each heater, each door window contact, each socket or motion detector has a digital representation in the cloud - as an IoT - an Internet of Things!

The data, such as current temperature, desired temperature or door open / closed, are saved on the IoT and made available on the app for display.

 
Orchestration of the AWS services and technology stack

GOD has orchestrated and adapted all the necessary AWS services and supplemented them with AWS Lambda programming. The technology stack consists of a REST-API, which we provide for the app, of Javascript-Lambda, noSQL databases, MQTT and HTTPS protocols. Another important point about the cloud is the form of provisioning:

“As GOD, we have ensured that the customer can build its cloud in a quality-assured manner for different OEM partners almost at the push of a button. A complete Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment pipeline with different stages and tests is created automatically. For this purpose the latest technologies, such as Infrastructure as Code (IaC) were used”

explains Matthias Gramm, project manager for the Cloud Consulting & Solutions division.
