ClearBlade Technology[edit]

ClearBlade IoT Cloud Platform[edit]

The ClearBlade IoT platform is the engineered core for developing integrated IoT Solutions that connect Devices to Enterprise Applications. ClearBlade is designed to be able to deploy across any cloud, internal infrastructure or industrial gateways. There is no dependency on Cloud specific APIs or definitions. The ClearBlade Platform can run on any major Linux distribution leveraging containers to fit within the boundaries of any secure network. ClearBlade can install and run securely next to a core system or behind a firewal

ClearBlade On-Premise Platform[edit]

The ClearBlade On-Premise Platform is a replicate of the Cloud Platform that enables organization who cannot deploy to the open Internet, or transmit data through a public cloud system, to manage it in their own private network. The ClearBlade IoT On-Premise platform automatically syncs with ClearBlade Edge running on any gateway.

ClearBlade IoT Edge Platform[edit]

The ClearBlade IoT Edge platform enables companies to synchronize, configure, manage state and deploy IoT systems with one common software stack. It allows to power activities at the edge of the organization's IoT solutions including real-time business rules, filtering, online / offline modes and messaging. Edge computing also offers strong security through encryption, authentication, and authorization of API access including tokens and certificates. The ClearBlade IoT Edge can be deployed at any gateway device.

ClearBlade IoT Portals[edit]

The role-based portals allow to easily visualize, monitor, interact and manage all the devices.

Developer focus[edit]

The Platform runs real-time data streaming and is built from the ground up for a developer audience. ClearBlade has chosen a developer-centric approach by designing the platform in alignment with developer methodologies and paradigms and by providing open-source SDKs (iOS SDK[1], Android SDK[2], JavaScript SDK[3], Java SDK[4], GoLang SDK[5], NodeJS SDK[6], Python SDK[7], C SDK[8]), complete API coverage and a command-line interface (CLI) for integration into IDEs and with support for developer work.


The strength of the ClearBlade Platform is in a horizontal approach allowing a screaming performance while maintaining rigorous security by embracing the open community accepted standards, utilizing approved best practices and libraries with openness and public validation, continually updating to protect against future discoveries and setting the default permissions to none.

The Platform provides different elements to insure its security as: a strong authentication, meaning that every interaction in the system requires a device and user to gain a valid token, an authority allowing only specific actors (whether a device or user) to access each granular element of a system, also an awareness and encryption (no matter what server it resides on on what network infrastructure it travels over) for the client’s data.


ClearBlade provides a free online-class for developers to get Certified Enterprise IoT Developer within the ClearBlade platform.
