An article is based on comparing of data processing within PLC and MCU with using Cloud platforms. The last advances in computation and communication technologies are taking shape in the form of IoT (Internet of Things), M2M (Machine to Machine) technology, Industry 4.0 and Cyber Physical Systems. Internet of Things connects an enormous number of devices. Devices within IoT need small number of sensors and control data, but with numerous messages. Today Cloud services work with the volume of these data and support large scale IoT systems. In this paper we would like to represent a comparison of solutions Industrial and Commercial IoT. The proposed systems use one of the newest communication protocols MQTT.
