The integration of Cloud Computing into Internet-of-Things (IoT) could solving heterogeneity problems with its devices, protocols and technologies. IoT Cloud-based platforms also offer reliability, scalability, and security features in terms of reduced costs. For building an IoT Cloud platform we proposed a three-layered model and we emphasized the functions of the Fog/Edge and Cloud Application levels, leveraging on Cloud Computing. Also, we described several platforms existing on IT market and we presented several pros and cons arguments for using IoT Cloud platforms in business, public administration and healthcare.
