ThingsBoard as a Google IoT Core alternative
Google Cloud will shut down the IoT Core service in August 2023. You might be wondering where and how to migrate. ThingsBoard is an excellent alternative to Google IoT Cloud. Launched in 2016 as an open source project, ThingsBoard has grown to a mature platform with 1000+ customers worldwide.
ThingsBoard, Inc. provides managed services, training, support, and software development services around the platform. We may also host and manage a private platform instance in your existing Google Cloud infrastructure.
