In the future Internet of Things/M2M network, enormous amounts of data generated from sensors must be processed and utilized by cloud applications. In recent years, sensor data stream delivery, which collects and sends sensor data periodically, has been attracting great attention. As for sensor data stream delivery, the receivers have different delivery cycle requirements depending on the applications or situations. In this paper, we propose a sensor data stream delivery method to accommodate heterogeneous cycles on the cloud. The proposed method uses distributed hashing to determine relay nodes on the cloud and construct delivery paths autonomously. We evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed method in simulations. The simulation results show that the proposed method halves the maximum load of nodes compared to the baseline methods and achieves high load balancing.
