New requirements, posed by the Next Generation IoT, demand design of novel reference architectures, providing foundation for implementation of Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystems. Building on cloud-native concepts (e.g. microservices, virtualisation, and containerization), a flexible architecture that answers requirements present in recent IoT deployments is introduced. A general description of components of the architecture (grouped in horizontal planes and vertical capabilities) is provided, together with formal definition of architectural views. Moreover, ground is laid for upcoming validation in real-world-anchored scenarios. Functional, node, deployment and data views are presented, each of them addressing concerns of different stakeholder groups, typically involved in an IoT deployments.
