MindSphere is a distributed two-sided open platform to connect the IoT and leverage it's combined power through services and Apps. To do so, we provide you tools with the latest technology and security standards.
The platform consists of three distinct layers,
- the MindSphere Application Platform which provides a managed Platform as a Service (PaaS) to host your applications directly on MindSphere,
- the MindSphere Services Platform which allows you to use our services via public APIs in your own solutions and
- the MindConnect Elements which provide you with plug and play hardware and customizable software components to get your data into the platform.
MindSphere Application Platform¶
Operational aspects like deployment, scaling, monitoring are getting easier since these features are baked into the core of the MindSphere Application Platform.
MindSphere Services Platform¶
The MindSphere Services Platform provides a variety of supporting services to make application development easier. Through our APIs you can automate almost every process, manage users and assets, retrieve and store Industrial IoT data, run analytics and much more.
Please refer to our APIs & Services Index to learn more.
With MindConnect Elements, Siemens offers numerous possibilities for connecting machines, plants and worldwide fleets to MindSphere, regardless of the manufacturer.
Availability of MindSphere¶
Currently we are serving MindSphere from Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Frankfurt (eu-central-1), but soon we will also be available in US Virginia (us-east-1) and on Microsoft Azure.
