Device-to-Cloud and Cloud-to-Cloud
There are two main ways of using nRF Cloud Services: Device-to-Cloud and Cloud-to-Cloud.
Device-to-Cloud: The device connects directly to nRF Cloud with a bi-directional CoAP or MQTT.
Cloud-to-Cloud: The device is provisioned to the customer's cloud and that cloud communicates to the nRF Cloud via a REST API. This is ideal for customers that already use their own cloud and provides greater flexibility and control over the device communication workflow.
