Thinspace Technology (OTCBB: THNS) Announces Its Newly Formed Expert Technical Advisory Board

PORT ORANGE, Fla., March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Thinspace Technology Inc. (OTCBB: THNS; "Thinspace or the "Company"), formerly known as Vanity Events Holdings and Propalms Ltd., a global provider of reliable, scalable and affordable application delivery, virtualization, and cloud client technology to public and private sector companies and organizations of all sizes, today is pleased to announce that it has formed a Technical Advisory Board and appointed its first members to the board: Ben Cherian, a cloud-computing expert; Julian Levy, an enterprise infrastructure and financial services executive; and Claudio Rodrigues, Thinspace's Chief Technical Architect.

With over 20 years of experience in cloud computing, managed services, networking, enterprise services, and application development, Ben Cherian is a senior executive bringing volumes of expertise in the Company's core markets to its Technical Advisory Board. Currently he maintains his role as VP Strategic Development for Inktank Storage, a company focused on transforming the storage industry by driving the widespread adoption and ubiquity of software-defined-storage with Ceph, where he is responsible for partnerships, strategic alliances, and corporate development. Previously, he was the Chief Strategy Officer of Midokura, a cloud network virtualization vendor and the GM of Emerging Technologies at DreamHost. Before DreamHost, Ben had started several successful technology companies: a cloud-focused managed services company, a CIO consultancy, an ERP implementation firm, and a systems / network integration firm.

"Implementing virtual desktops can still be a difficult complicated proposition for some companies. Thinspace's vision of an end-to-end supported VDI solution is a product that the market is clamoring for. I'm pleased to be part of the technical advisory board and am looking forward to helping Thinspace's team as they move into the cloud," stated Ben Cherian.

Julian Levy is an experienced executive based out of London with a deep understanding of Enterprise infrastructure and Financial Services. He has covered roles in both the front and back office including Software and Services Equity Research at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and the European SVP for Technology Research and Development at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Before this he was a senior technologist at Credit Suisse Group and CSFB, where he ran global middleware and security engineering functions as well having hands-on operational, engineering and management experience at a number of start-ups prior to 2000. Commenting on his appointment, he stated, "I'm very excited to be able to join Thinspace's Technical Advisory Board - with their recent acquisitions and long-term strategy, I think they have the opportunity to be highly disruptive."

As Thinspace's Chief Technical Architect and now a member of its Technical Advisory Board, Claudio Rodrigues is focused on driving innovation for the Company's next generation Pano virtualization products. Prior to Thinspace, he was the founder and CEO of Terminal-Services.NET and later TSFactory Inc, that brought several unique, simple and affordable tools to the market. With over 20 years of experience in the SBC/VDI market, Claudio was responsible for deploying hundreds of thousands of seats for several large enterprises worldwide. Thanks to his work with the Terminal Services communities he was the first person ever to be awarded the Microsoft MVP Award specifically for RDS back in 2001. He is also a well known BriForum presenter and a BriForum GeekOut Master Champion having won it three times in a row and for that reason, he was banned from it by Brian Madden himself. 

Owen Dukes, Chief Executive Officer of Thinspace Technology, commented, "On behalf of Thinspace, we would like to officially welcome Ben, Julian and Claudio to our newly formed Technical Advisory Board. Their caliber of experience and expertise as well as thoughtful oversight and vision will be instrumental in ensuring our technology and business strategy is on point, on track, and competitive with other application delivery, virtualization and cloud providers."

Thinspace Technology operates in high growth B2B markets of application delivery, virtualization and cloud client technology that make it easier, more flexible and more affordable for companies and IT Managers to conduct and streamline computing operations securely from any server - anywhere in the world.  IDC predicts that 2014 is the year where desktop virtualization is going to become main stream given its advantages currently in demand: low cost, flexibility, secure and green. According to Gartner research, the global desk top virtualization market is expected to surpass $65 billion in 2015.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
