    Did you hear that? It was the sound of Samsung shipping a Server, Homesync

    Google is even getting scared by Samsung's growth in the Mobile market.

    Google executives worry that Samsung has become so big—the South Korean company sells about 40% of the gadgets that use Google's Android software—that it could flex its muscle to renegotiate their arrangement and eat into Google's lucrative mobile-ad business, people familiar with the matter said.

    Samsung's latest move is Homesync.

    HomeSync will be available from April 2013 in select countries and continue to expand globally.

    Samsung Homesync Specifications

     Some companies took the move to use hundreds of Mac Minis as servers for a rendering environment. If you squint your eyes and look at the above specifications you can see the start of a server that could fit in a data center.  Throw out the HDMI and media chips.  Add more cores, memory and disk IO and you have a data center server.
     
    We'll see what the price point is for Homesync.  Then you can extrapolate a price point for a Samsung server.
