Samsung's Artik Cloud Is Part Of Its Aggressive Strategy In IoT
On Wednesday, April 27, Samsung introduced its Artik Cloud as part of its aggressive strategy on the cloud services and Internet of Things (IoT) market.
The Artik Cloud service is the latest addition to Samsung's family of Artik software and hardware products developed by the South Korean high-tech giant for the IoT market. The product was announced in San Francisco, at the Samsung Developer Conference.
According to the publication ZDNet, Samsung's Artik Cloud provides the necessary tools for companies that need to act on data collected from cloud services or connected devices. With the Artik Cloud, data coming from the cloud can be collected, stored and analyzed. The idea is to offer companies a service that can bring IoT applications quickly to market.
Samsung hopes that Artik will provide a solid foothold in the blossoming cloud services and Internet of Things market. The South Korean tech giant has announced its focus on IoT at last year's Consumer Electronics Show.
Young Sohn, president and chief strategy officer for Samsung, noted that Artik has been in development for three years. According to him, Artik Cloud is different from other IoT cloud platforms in that it breaks down data silos between devices.
Sohn said that the launch of Artik Cloud new platform reinforces Samsung's belief that by creating powerful open platforms, the information generated by IoT can be harnessed in order to develop new approaches and new insights. This way, Samsung contributes to the global efforts to address the major "challenges of today and tomorrow."
According to the product's website, Artik Cloud began as a one-stop chip module with a built-in application processor, memory chip, sensor and modem chip. The product is offered with different specifications and sizes.
According to Computerworld, with the new Artik Cloud, Samsung is a direct rival of Microsoft's Azure and IBM's Bluemix in the cloud services and IoT market. Samsung is selling Artik developer boards to make gadgets, wearables, robots, drones, home and industrial automation products.
