IoT stands for Internet of things i.e. connection of devices using internet infrastructure to send and receive data, utilize cloud storage services and much more at ease of comfort.
As Microsoft windows is used in many devices as operating system to do more than just computing. Microsoft is combining power of IoT and windows to realize the dream of incorporating monitoring and control and communication functionalities in applications and devices at large scale.

Microsoft Windows 10 IoT realizes this dream in following different product flavors:
• Windows 10 IoT Core-256 MB RAM, 2GB Storage, X86 or ARM processor
• Windows 10 IoT for mobile-512MB RAM, 4GB Storage, ARM processor
• Windows 10 IoT for industry devices, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage, X86 processor
