LogMeIn has announced the launch of Xively Cloud Services, a public cloud platform purpose-built for developing and managing commercial products on the Internet of Things.
According to the vendor, the new offering, which was known as Cosm in its beta form, is designed to help companies simplify the development of a new generation of connected products that can be quickly deployed on the IoT, easily interact with other connected offerings, and effortlessly scale to billions of devices.
“We believe that the Internet of Things has the potential to be even more transformative than the Web and mobile Internet before it. And the goal of Xively is to change how businesses view and potentially capitalise on the IoT opportunity – in short, to make the promise of the IoT a near-term reality,” says Michael Simon, CEO of LogMeIn. “Whether you’re an entrepreneur trying to build the next Nest-like device, an established manufacturer looking to differentiate through connected experiences, or a service provider looking to bring new connected services to market, Xively is designed to reduce the friction and accelerate time-to-market for companies of all sizes.”
A commercial IoT platform-as-a-service (PaaS), Xively is based on LogMeIn’s Gravity Cloud platform.
Xively as a "pay as you grow" pricing model, which the company says lowers the barrier to entry for innovators and established brands alike.
