DOCUMENTATION 》 TOFFEE Data-Center optimized Internet of Things (IoT) Platform

The Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the world in more ways than most people realize. Market research shows that, the global market for IoT in 2020 is going to be worth $500 billion in terms of sales. Hardware will account for 70% of sales - devices ranging from smart homes to connected cars and personal wearable technology. This platform needs back-end infrastructure, hardware, software and analytics required to turn the copious amounts of data generated by IoT hardware (sensors, etc) into usable information and in turn may feed AI.

When the personal computer (PC) revolution started during the 1970s and 1980s, it was mostly limited to developed countries such as US, UK and so on initially. Only in the much later stages, when prices of computers dropped significantly, did this revolution go global and penetrated developing countries. Similar trend can be observed in dot-com boom as well. But unlike previous tech revolutions, IoT is a global revolution from Day One.

The Real Challenge!
The data monitored across these IoT hardware sources can be fed into central data-center upon which big data analytics can be performed in real-time. But the challenge is often the data where it is being produced (data source) is situated at offshore remote sites (IoT hardware sensors). And this is the real challenge.

Big Data Analytics - data source vs data-center connectivity - the real challenge

Addressing the same via TOFFEE DataCenter platform:
This data produced this way is quite unique and discrete unlike a traditional TCP session based data (such as user browsing data). TOFFEE is specifically architected keeping this aspect in mind so that it can optimize wide variety of use-cases unlike a simple traditional outdated WAN Optimization approach.

Replacing in Lab Intel Core i7 5820K Desktop PC with Intel Celeron 1037U Mini-PC ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
As a research experiment I replaced my Intel Core i7 5820K desktop PC with my Intel Celeron 1037U Mini-PC as my everyday desktop system. This is an attempt to reduce my overall monthly power consumption. As well an attempt to do feasibility tests and research to know how far Mini PC will dominate the market in future and to study the real potential of Mini PCs.

TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) deployment with web-proxy cache ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
If you want to deploy TOFFEE along with a web-proxy cache (such as Squid Proxy) you can deploy the same as shown below. TOFFEE does not cache files. TOFFEE does packet level network optimization. So if you want caching your web content you can use transparent mode web-proxy cache intercepting your WAN links. A web-proxy may reduce amount of data being processed (optimized) within these TOFFEE devices and so reduce the CPU overheads and improve its performance.

Recording Lab Monthly power-consumption readings for Research ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is my home lab monthly power-consumption readings for research. This will help to measure and monitor the overall power usage and assess the power requirements. This will help me in future purchases such as UPS, battery upgrades and so on. And as well remove replace old obsolete hardware with new less power-consuming devices.

Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Today I finally completed building my own private CDN. As I discussed so far in my earlier topics (Building my own CDN), I want to custom build the same step-by-step from scratch. And I don't want to for now use/buy third-party CDN subscriptions from Akamai, CloudFlare, Limelight, etc as I discussed earlier.

VPN Network Optimization via TOFFEE WAN Optimization ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
VPN Networks may degrade network performance due to various packet processing overheads such as encryption and by adding extra network protocol header(s) (such as IPv4/IPv6, IPSec, etc). This may inflate near MTU sized packets and causes excessive packet fragmentation. Here are the few examples of packet processing involved in a VPN (or a VPN like) Tunnel. With TOFFEE you can optimize these packets even before they get processed on to a VPN device. TOFFEE optimizes packet contents (application payload and transport headers) so that these TOFFEE optimized packets when they get processed by VPN devices (or VPN software stack) they may never need further packet fragmentation. Here is a deployment scenario of TOFFEE with VPN devices.
