This paper presents IoT-Hub a new scalable, elastic, efficient, and portable Internet of Things (IoT) data-platform based on microservices for monitoring and analysing large- scale sensor data in real-time. IoT-Hub allows us to collect, process, and store large amounts of data from multiple sensors in distributed locations—which could be deployed as a backend for Virtual Research Environments (VRE) or Science Gateways. In the proposed data-platform, all required software, which involves a variety of state-of-the-art open-source middleware, is packed into containers and deployed in a cloud environment. As a result, the engineering and computational time and costs for deployment and execution is significantly reduced.
