Synchronoss Technologies, a global leader and innovator of cloud, messaging, digital and IoT products, announced that it is partnering with Microsoft to deliver an industry-leading Smart Buildings solution.
By leveraging Microsoft Azure and joining Microsoft’s Azure IoT solutions accelerator program, Synchronoss will develop and offer a best-of-breed Smart Buildings solution to enterprises globally. The collaboration will start by delivering a live proof of concept (PoC) to global technology services provider Rackspace, deploying a smart buildings service to monitor, control, and optimize energy usage and reduce costs at Rackspace’s San Antonio headquarters, which spans more than one million square feet.
Rackspace collaborated with Synchronoss to architect, design and deploy its Azure IoT environment based on industry best practices to ensure optimal scalability and security. Synchronoss and Microsoft will now combine their expertise in cloud computing and IoT service enablement to collect and analyze data feeds from numerous sources within Rackspace’s headquarters. The combined IoT Smart Buildings enablement platform covers everything from heating and air conditioning to lighting, maintenance and security.
Synchronoss’ Smart Buildings solution is powered by advanced diagnostics and analytics capabilities. It can be used to analyze a single building or seamlessly link multiple buildings within the same company or a city to create an intelligent network of buildings.
