Now that we have explored the differences between these two platforms and have considered the factors when choosing one over the other, let us talk about which service is a better fit for your particular device.
IoT Central is a good choice for getting your solution started. The ease of use and abstraction from infrastructure will help you focus on business requirements instead of dealing with infrastructure. With increasing support from Microsoft, IoT Central will even be more versatile and flexible to fit your IoT solution need.
IoT Hub is a great selection for collecting data from a wide range of devices. If you are looking to collect data from a variety of different sensors, Hub could be a good choice. Hub gives you the ability to create your own solution with much finer granularity, but with additional overhead and burden of managing the solution yourself.
