“With Project Infinite, we’re addressing a major issue our users have asked us to solve,” said Genevieve Sheehan, Product Manager at Dropbox. “The amount of information being created and shared has exploded, but most people still work on devices with limited storage capacity.”

With the Infinite Drive, you have visibility transversely to the whole system, but the files will placed in the cloud as chosen by a cloud icon next to the file, or on your hard drive with a cloud backup as selected with a green check mark. This allows users to manage cloud files as still they are local, without taking up room on your drive and that’s an enormous difference.

“Project Infinite will enable users to seamlessly and securely access all their Dropbox files from the desktop, regardless of how much space they have available on their hard drives. Everything in the company’s Dropbox that you’re given access to, whether it’s stored locally or in the cloud, will show up in Dropbox on your desktop. If it’s synced locally, you’ll see the familiar green check mark, while everything else will have a new cloud icon.”

Project Infinite is not actually infinite, but it does offer a flawless layer between the physical drive and the cloud storage with Dropbox.

Samsung Launches Cloud Platform for Internet of Things

The launch of the Artik Cloud Platform that is an open data exchange platform is designed to enable customers to connect any data set from any connected device and any cloud service.

Samsung cloudGreatResponder.com  Samsung Electronics a well known electronics giant announces the Samsung Artik Cloud, which is an open data exchange platform intended to connect devices and applications. The Samsung Artik Cloud provides user-friendly, open APIs and tools to firmly collect, store, and act on any data from any connected device or cloud service.

With these APIs and tools, companies can rapidly bring new Internet of Things solutions and services to market, hit into new income streams, and develop their business. The Samsung Artik Cloud is commercially accessible now.

“Our vision for the Artik platform is an end-to-end experience that reduces the obstacles, challenges, and time-to-market for IoT solutions,” said Young Sohn, Chief Strategy Officer at Samsung Electronics. “We’re excited to announce the Samsung Artik Cloud after three years of development and feedback from hundreds of developers.”

The Samsung faces several challenges when linking different devices and cloud services together into integrated experiences. These challenges comprise of collecting data from a varied set of devices using a range of protocols; enabling inheritance, new, and third-party devices and cloud services to cooperate with each other with minimum effort; storing data from different devices in a single place and deriving important insights; organization data, security and confidentiality; and providing developers with practical APIs and tools.

“The need for an open cloud solution that can work with any connected device, and with other cloud services is critical for broader consumer adoption,” said BK Yoon, CEO of Samsung Electronics. “The launch of Artik Cloud is extremely exciting because it promises to not only help Samsung connect our diverse portfolio of products, but also enables other companies to participate in a growing IoT ecosystem.”

This step has also followed a number of product launches over the last year to take Samsung into the IoT ecosystem. Last year the company introduced three chips, Artik 1, 5 and 10 that were designed specially to be set-in in IoT products. Constructed on top of Amazon Web Services, the Artik Cloud will be the Samsung’s first venture into providing a cloud service to third-party clients. The Samsung has worked on its own backend software for its own devices and services, but never for outside clients.

Intel Announces Phase of Restructuring to Put Focus on Cloud

The restructuring initiative will help the company accelerate its evolution from a PC company to a cloud powered company, and it will also slashes 12000 employees of Intel globally.

IntelGreatResponder.com  Intel Corporation announces a restructuring initiative to speed up its growth from a PC company to one that powers the cloud and billions of smart and connected computing devices. Intel will deepen its focus on high growth areas where it is placed for long-term leadership, client, value and growth, while making the corporation more proficient and beneficial.

The data center and Internet of Things (IoT) businesses are Intel’s primary development engines, with memory and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) speeding up these opportunities, fueling an upright cycle of growth for the company. These growth businesses brought $2.2 billion in income growth last year, and made up 40 percent of income and the greater part of operating profit, which mainly offset the decline in the PC market division.

“Our results over the last year demonstrate a strategy that is working and a solid foundation for growth,” said Krzanich. “The opportunity now is to accelerate this momentum and build on our strengths. These actions drive long-term change to further establish Intel as the leader for the smart, connected world,” he added. “I am confident that we’ll emerge as a more productive company with broader reach and sharper execution.”

“The data center and Internet of Things business are now Intel’s primary growth engines, and combined with memory and FPGAs, form and fuel a virtuous cycle of growth” he said.

Whereas making the company more resourceful, Intel plans to amplify investments in the products and technologies that that will fuel income growth, and make more beneficial mobile and PC businesses. Through this complete idea, the company plans to raise investments in its data center, IoT, memory and connectivity businesses, as well as rising client divisions such as 2-in-1s, gaming and home gateways.

This transformation will result in the decrease of up to 12,000 positions globally, about 11 percent of employees, by mid 2017 through the site consolidations worldwide, a blend of voluntary and involuntary departures, and a review of programs. The greater part of these actions will be corresponded to exaggerated workers over the next 60 days with some actions spanning in to 2017.

Intel is looking forward to the program to deliver $750 million in funds this year and annual run rate savings of $1.4 billion by mid 2017.
