Advantages of using IoT platform (eg Thingspeak) over Mysql
I am using Thingspeak IOT cloud platform for storing and retriving the real time data. Creating own database through MYSQL is also suggested. Which is better? IOT cloud platform or MYSQL server.
I don't understand the comparison;
From what I visualized in Thingspeak's website, it is an analytics tool with key CSPs. It means it's a product which may or may not contain mySQL or Kafka as backend.
While MySQL is database. You can do numerous things with it.
IOT Platform is the best in retrieving and store data.
