Digi International announced its collaboration with Freescale Semiconductor to integrate the secure and scalable iDigi Device Cloud solution into Freescale's leading Kinetis and ColdFire microcontroller platforms. Using the iDigi Connector, an open interface for any type of device, Kinetis and ColdFire customers now have immediate access to both a web and mobile applications development platform and world class device management functionality.
Hype, misuse, and misplaced aspirations have clouded the term's definition. Here's what it's really about
Computer engineers in the US writing in the International Journal of Communication Networks and Distributed Systems have reviewed the research literature to get a clear picture of cloud computing, its adoption, use and the security issues it faces.
Today a consortium of leading IT providers and three of Europes biggest research centres (CERN, EMBL and ESA) announced a partnership to launch a European cloud computing platform. "Helix Nebula - the Science Cloud" , will support the massive IT requirements of European scientists, and become available to governmental organisations and industry after an initial pilot phase.
By means of cloud computing, enterprises can access scalable computing power and storage capacity. A people cloud, by contrast, supplies a scalable number of workers via the internet. It is used when non-automated tasks are executed, such as allocating images, searching information, or writing texts. The challenge is to maintain the quality of the work results on a constant high level. Now, this is achieved by a quality management system developed by KIT.
