I read various documentation on this topic. But I am still unsure about couple of basic questions,

  • In what scenarios IoTHub is the only way out?
  • I know IoTCentral is quick specially for cloud beginners. But if it serves all the need then why not always use IoTCentral?

    Hi @Aurovind Sagar Epari

    Great question let me get you though this, Both Azure IoT Hub and Azure IoT Central are tools to manage IoT devices, but they're used in different situations:

    1. IoT Hub: This is like a toolbox for experts. It's great when you need a lot of customization and control. You can build things exactly the way you want and handle complex tasks. Kindly go through the below documentation for more details official documentation.
    2. IoT Central**:** This is like a ready-made solution and It's perfect when you want to set things up quickly without much fuss. It's simple to use and takes care of many details for you. Azure IoT Central documentation

    So, which one to pick depends on how complex your project is and how much control you want. If you're an expert who wants lots of options, go for IoT Hub. If you want things easy and fast, IoT Central is the way to go.

    If you find this answer useful kindly accept it, for assistance ping here thanks.
