Raspberry Pi Isn’t a Go-To for Commercial IoT. Could That Change?
When building out commercial and enterprise IoT networks, Raspberry Pi is usually out of consideration as a supporting single board computer. Its open source technologies make it great for hobbyists and small-scale deployments, but critics challenge its security capabilities. However, even though it gets said anecdotal heat, Raspberry Pi is still proving to be 44% of electronics engineers’ favorite SBC for IoT, according to research from Farnell.
Regardless, commercial IoT deployments continue at scale; the energy industry, for example, saw an accelerated adoption of IoT for oil & gas applications, according to research from Inmarsat. As this enterprise demand grows, will Raspberry Pi have any part in this growth? Can it meet scale and cybersecurity standards, and can it find use cases beyond small-scale projects like content distribution? Andrew Rindfleisch, software engineer & developer at Devetry, gave his thoughts.
