Anyone got any idea around same, please let me know.

As of W'18, Salesforce has split IoT offerings into two products: IoT Scale and IoT Explorer.
IoT Scale is a custom application cluster on top of Kafka running on AWS. This is what was previously referred to as Thunder and then IoT Cloud. These clusters are meant to handle billions of events per day and allow for some amazingly complicated telemetry processing. It's very expensive but also really needed for huge deployments.
IoT Explorer is new as of W'18, and you can try it in developer editions. Hooray! IoT Explorer provides the same orchestration engine as IoT Scale but has more limited input processing.
Salesforce recommends starting with IoT Explorer, and then working with Salesforce directly when you are pushing limits -- 500k platform events per day.
IoT Explorer starts at $6000/month and is based on number of events, not users.
