Arduino unveils a set of added features for its Create Cloud platform (create.arduino.cc) aimed at expanding the number of Arduino-supported platforms for the development of IoT applications. With this release, Arduino Create Cloud users can now program Linux boards as if they were regular Arduino boards. Multiple Arduino programs can run simultaneously on a Linux-based board and programs can communicate with each other leveraging the capabilities of the latest Arduino Connector.
Arduino has also developed a unique out-of-the-box experience that enables anybody to set up a new device from scratch from the cloud without any previous knowledge by following an intuitive web based wizard. The initial release has been sponsored by Intel and supports X86/X86_64 boards. As a reference implementation, a simplified user experience has been designed for the AAEON UP board, although other platforms are already supported by the Arduino Create Cloud platform (Intel NUC, Dell Wyse, Gigabyte GB-BXT).
Arduino plans to expand support for Linux based IoT devices running on other hardware architectures in the upcoming months. For more details, visit Arduino.
