Acer plans to launch BYOC (build your own cloud) solutions in the third quarter of 2014, according to company chairman Stan Shih.
The BYOC solutions reported by Digitimes will be designed to let individual or enterprise users access data or content stored on their PC using PCs, notebooks, tablets or smartphones via the Internet.
Acer plans to charge BYOC enterprise users a licensing fee beginning the second quarter of 2014. But Acer desktops, notebooks, tablets and smartphones feature built-in AcerCloud applications, so those users can use those BYOC services without charges for the time being.
Few other details are yet available other than that Acer plans to open a BYOC experience center in northern Taiwan on May 29.
