“This is something we are investigating,” said Sven Freudenfeld, business development manager for Kontron’s Communication Business Unit in Montreal. “At the end of the day we are selling CPUs, but these don’t have to be physically shipped. We can give developers access to the latest CPUs without the cost of buying the hardware so that they can get a head start until they are ready to complete the development.”
“Right now it’s in its infancy,” he said. “We want to find a way forward as it’s a very interesting business model to do development n the cloud.”
This week Kontron is demonstrating a real time video encoding platform using the SYMKLOUD technology for cable and mobile operators to add cloud services to their offerings and this would also appeal to video security and surveillance customers, says Freudenfeld. Unlike other board makers, the company is not looking to provide other wider cloud services.
“We are not looking to provide security as a service ,” he said. “Service provider – that’s not the business we are in.”
