Need a way to distribute communication at edge devices when offline with IoT hub
During offline with IoT hub, is it possible to have a mechanism at Edge device to distribute the messages among other Edge devices? This will help to address a scenario were one Edge device needs to share message/information with another Edge device as there is no cloud data storage share available due to

i have similar requirement.. where there are multiple edge devices in network with different modules and post deployment we need to communicate within these edge devices.. with limited or no internet. we can use some custom communication but is there anything built in we can leverage.

+1 here. We need a high availability strategy that is Edge Only that doesn't require cloud connectivity to function.
i.e. Edge Clusters or something.
Are you trying to achieve high availability/disaster recovery? The feature here would be making sure groups of edge devices have the same view of messages queued for the cloud?
Manoj Prabhu commented
Yes, absolutely correct.
Just to make sure I understand the scenario...
You have multiple edge devices that need to share data. This is usually done by sync it to the cloud and letting each edge device retrieve the desired data from that cloud store. You are asking for a feature that lets these edge devices share data locally only while the devices do not have a connection to the cloud.
