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.

Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) ir...

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.
