Application Partner Benefits
Sophisticated Execution Platform
Homecloud provides a reliable, always-on, Internet-connected platform to run your application. No more relying on a powered-up computer with a never ending stream of newly installed software to deliver your critical product services.
Rich Set of Platform APIs
Homecloud provides simple, permission-based access to users' files and home storage across a wide range of devices running Windows, Mac, or iOS. It also offers a fully-featured web environment from which users can interact with an application. Partners focus more on delivering customer value and worry less about end-user client support and infrastructure.
Flexible Deployment Options
Applications running within Homecloud are fully managed via Homecloud's application deployment system. Every component within the Homecloud delivery system is dynamic. The solution supports a range of commercial models from one-time fees to a recurring charge as well as "freemium" offers.
Homecloud's unique cloud architecture is designed to support a broad set of devices regardless of OS or manufacturer. This enables the broadest addressable market for partner applications.
Saves Money on Network Bandwidth
Homecloud reduces bandwidth requirements thus saving money for cloud application providers by allowing the partner to transfer data to the Internet only when needed. For example, users can locally access partner content when at home directly from their Homecloud.
Accelerate Application Adoption
With Homecloud already in place, the hurdles for a user to adopt new services can be lowered significantly. New partner applications are automatically installed and instantly become available to all devices connected to a given Homecloud.
