At our recent Collide Conference, I interviewed Richard Brown, Vice President of International Marketing , CPU Platform of Taiwanese based chip set manufacturing company VIA Technologies, about their push into cloud computing.

Mr. Brown believes cloud computing is booming now because the infrastructure of data centres and devices are in place, operating systems such as Android are accessible and broadband internet is more available.

VIA Technologies has been a pioneer of green and low power computing. “One issue we are trying to solve is environmental. We started talking about low power PC’s 10 years ago and at that time; no one really took us seriously because they were focused on performance. But we knew that the PC market was going to grow, meaning more devices consuming more electricity and having more impact on the environment, so we focused on low power consumption. The cost of running data centres are huge, so companies are also looking to save money on power.” Said Brown.
