SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 -- NComputing, a leader in client virtualization solutions, today announced the general availability of NComputing oneSpace. NComputing oneSpace is a unified workspace solution that enables IT to unify and securely deliver applications and files as a service to a variety of devices, including iPad and Android tablets.
The reality of IT today is a world of hybrid devices, applications and file services. This is exacerbated by the accelerated growth of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) initiatives. Therefore, IT departments need a simpler way to orchestrate and deliver essential business assets to their end users. Until now, IT departments within small and mid-sized organizations have not been equipped with the right tools to aggregate and provide secure access to all applications and files from mobile devices.
With NComputing oneSpace, IT can unify the delivery of Windows, Web and SaaS applications, and both on-premises and cloud file shares to tablets without having to re-write applications or make costly changes to their existing infrastructure. All of this is delivered to mobile users via a single oneSpace mobile app with a common user experience across tablet devices. This results in improved end user productivity while allowing IT departments to maintain control of their internal applications and data.
NComputing oneSpace represents another step forward in NComputing's mission to deliver the most innovative client virtualization solutions to the market today. As the only unified workspace solution designed specifically for the needs of small and mid-sized organizations, NComputing oneSpace delivers the ultimate unified workspace solution starting at less than a dollar per day per user to meet even the most demanding IT budgets.
Alternative solutions are not designed to meet the needs of small and mid-sized organizations and often require forklift infrastructure upgrades, data migration, application re-writing, deep IT budgets, and a large number of IT staff to implement and manage. NComputing oneSpace allows IT to eliminate these high costs through a unique formula of simplicity, performance and value.

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) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.

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 comprehension and conference efficiency.

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. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
