Microchip makes a smart cloud move and hooks up with Amazon web services

If you read this blog regularly you know I have pointed out how important the connectivity layer is in #IoT and that a good cloud solution is key to everything that happens next so its interesting to see Microchip getting a jump on the trend by hooking up with the biggest (maybe the best?) cloud outfit there is;  Amazon.  

They have a WiFi kit (for $99) and a cloud development platform that should speed time to working prototype.  I expect many more microcontroller vendors to jump on this now.  You can read the details here: http://www.microchip.com/pagehandler/en-us/press-release/microchips-cloud-based-develop.html 

Who will be the last MCU vendor to announce their cloud solution?
