Understanding the Intel IoT Analytics structure

Imagine that we have to collect and analyze sensor data for 3,000 IoT devices, that is, 3,000 Intel Galileo Gen 2 boards running the Python code that interacts with sensors. We would need to invest in the storage and processing capacity to perform IoT analytics with such a huge amount of data. Whenever we have a similar requirement, we can take advantage of a cloud-based solution. Intel IoT Analytics is one of them and it works very well with the Intel Galileo Gen 2 board and Python.
