Samsung introduced the ARTIK Cloud service at its Samsung Developer Conference on Wednesday- a tool which can store, analyze and act on data collected from any connected device or cloud service. This the latest addition to a family of ARTIK software and hardware products aims to offer companies a service that can be rolled out quickly in order to bring Internet of Things applications to market.

“We’ve talked about the Internet of Things, and now we can talk about the interoperability of things,” said Curtis Sasaki, vice president of ecosystems at Samsung.

Samsung, which has been focusing on IoT since last year, believes that ARTIK will give the company a strong niche in the thriving IoT market. Young Sohn, president and chief strategy officer for Samsung, said in a statement, “The launch of this exciting new platform not only signals Samsung’s foray into the cloud services market but reinforces our belief that, by creating powerful open platforms, we can harness the information generated by IoT to develop new insights and new approaches to address the major global challenges of today and tomorrow.”

Artik Cloud, supported by Legrand – an electrical installation company – supports a variety of Internet of Things platforms, including Samsung’s own Artik IoT hardware devices.

ARTIK is offered in three options with different sizes and specifications:

ARTIK 1 is designed for location-based beacons, activity trackers, smart bands, and other IoT end nodes with a 250MHz dual-core processor with 4MB of flash memory, 9-axis motion sensor, Bluetooth Low Energy support.

ARTIK 5, which is ideal for smart home hubs, provides more power with a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB DRAM and 4GB flash memory (ePOP), a video decoder and encoder.

ARTIK 10 with a 1.3GHz Octa-core processor, 2GB DRAM, and 16GB flash memory, the HD encoder and decoder, 5.1 audio, local intelligence is intended to be the complete system for home servers and personal clouds.

The service will be empowered with data visualization, device management tools, analytics capabilities and software development kits. The company plans to build support for more hardware and cloud connectors for transparent data exchanges. “These are great for makers and builders. Our motto is to make connections, not silos,” Sasaki further added
