Frequently Asked Questions

What is considered a device?

We focus on any device that is configured through and managed from Cumulocity IoT, including child devices. A “child device” is typically is not directly connected to the platform, but through an IoT gateway instead. A child device may not appear in the Device List but is still counted as a device.

Child device example: A modbus sensor connected through a Netcomm gateway or an OPC-UA device connected through the OPC-UA gateway.

What is a Device Class?
Device Classes are defined by the average frequency of MEA’s (Measurements, Events, Alarms) a device sends within a specified time period with a simultaneous restriction of storage of up to 4kb of data per single MEA. Data storage is included for 14 days and additional storage is available for purchase for cloud-based implementations.
How am I billed for Device Classes?
Depending on the package you select (Basic, Advanced, Enterprise), you are charged per device, per month where the price is dependent on the Device Class in which your devices are categorized. See Device Class chart for further details.
What is storage?
Cumulocity IoT stores inventory, measurements, alarms, audit logs, events and operations. Fourteen days of storage are included within all our packages. The total storage space required to store this data is used for billing. The current storage space is shown on the administration home page. For techies: The platform stores the raw data so typically it is smaller than the text sent over the normal REST APIs.
What if I need to store data for longer than 14 days?
Additional storage is available for purchase.
Do you have an example?
Let’s assume you want to control your energy usage by connecting a smart meter to Cumulocity IoT. The smart meter sends a JSON reading of 500 bytes every 5 minutes and the data is kept for one month. This would be considered a device that falls in Device Class C (6 per hour - 1 per minute). The Device Class price includes 14 days of storage.

The maximum allowable storage for a device in Device Class C would be calculated as follows:
1 MEA per minute (maximum MEA for Device Class C): 60 minutes per hour x 4kb allowable storage x 24 hours/day x 14 days = 80MB allowance for 14 days

The JSON reading example above would result in 4.32MB of data for the 30 days storage, which is under the included 80MB, so no additional storage costs would be charged in this scenario.
How does the trial work?
When you sign up for the free trial, you will get immediate access to Cumulocity IoT. The trial runs for 30 days. After 30 days, you have the option to convert it into a paid subscription of either a Basic or Advanced Package, which will preserve your data and configurations. You can cancel your trial or your subscription at any time. If you do not choose to convert your trial, your tenant will be suspended and the data will be deleted after 7 days.
How can I cancel my trial or my subscription?
You can unsubscribe any time by mailing to support@cumulocity.com or using the website form. The service is charged in advance for the month and not refunded when using only a part of the month. If you choose to end your trial or subscription, your tenant will be suspended at the end of the period and all your data will be removed from 7 days afterwards.
How am I billed?
Your invoice will be sent at the beginning of each month by email, using the email address and billing information you provided when signing up.
What support do I get?
All customers receive Basic level support as outlined in our service level agreement. For Enterprise level support, contact us.
What is included in the Cumulocity IoT storage and why is this different from “pure” cloud storage?

Cumulocity IoT is more than a file sharing or archiving system. In contrast to normal file sharing services, Cumulocity IoT offers the following advantages:

The data that you store in Cumulocity IoT is stored on high performance storage systems (using SSD) with guaranteed I/O performance so that you can rapidly retrieve it. Compared to storage of data in hard disks, SSD storage with guaranteed performance is multiple times more expensive. It is replicated so that your data is always available, even in case some servers or disks fail. Data you write is immediately copied to another disk, where it is available in case the primary server or disk fails. This doubles the required storage space. It is indexed, so that you can efficiently visualize your data. For example, measurement data is indexed in multiple dimensions to quickly access data of a certain time period or a certain device. These indexes take up additional storage space.

The data is backed up every day.

Why is the storage space used greater than the mobile data traffic?
Cumulocity IoT does more than store the data as is. The mechanism to send data to Cumulocity IoT is optimized to reduce data traffic as much as possible. The mechanism to store data in Cumulocity IoT is optimized to retrieve data as fast as possible and store the data as safely as possible. The amount of space used in Cumulocity IoT is the total space in use, not the space added since the previous month. You can control the storage duration using Cumulocity IoT’s retention policy feature.
