Storage specialist American Megatrends is working with its two other business units—the OEM/ODMs and enterprise products & solutions—to launch integrated products and solutions for specific technology and vertical segments. On the cards are solutions for the healthcare segment, GPS-based tracking solutions, and solutions for mobility and cloud computing.
Said Sridharan Mani, CEO & Director, American Megatrends India (AMI), “In mobility, BYOD is setting new trends and determining how people use technology. Our OEM and ODM partners are releasing new tablet, iPad and smartphone upgrades frequently, and we have to keep pace with these new demands.”
He said the company’s leadership in the BIOS and intelligent platform managers for remote server diagnostics will enable it to adapt to the new technological changes. “We will release our new set of solutions around mobility and the cloud by Q12013.”
The company is already running pilots with hospitals in India to bring tele-medicine to mobile phones. Explained Mani, “We are integrating diagnostic tools with the mobile and mounting it on the healthcare cloud which will be hosted by our partners. Futurenet Technologies, a Chennai-based company, has already launched a cloud service on our platform.”
AMI is working with partners such as Intel, VMware and Eucalyptus for virtualization and the cloud. “In India, more inquiries are for SaaS and IaaS, and since healthcare is a volume-heavy industry, there is a lot of demand for SaaS. We need to ensure that the cloud can handle it. This is where we are banking on Intel’s Atom for power. In future we will see 500-600 servers coming on one chassis, and have it as a redundant system. That is, bringing the whole cloud in a single box. We are working with Intel and ARM for the same, and you will see releases in the next 2-3 months,” Mani added.
