Infinitely Virtual Puts Touch Capability into the Cloud

Infinitely Virtual Puts Touch Capability into the Cloud

By Miguel Leiva-Gomez

The touch era has boomed enormously in the past few years, and the newest version of Windows has set a standard that will soon sweep across many previously non-touch interfaces. Along with a revolution like this comes the need for adoption across multiple levels, particularly in the cloud. This can be likened to the adoption of 3D printing and 3D films. Both technologies required vast customer bases ready to adopt a certain piece of hardware, coupled with several manufacturers ready to create the devices compatible with the technology.

Now, with the advent of touch devices, a company called Infinitely Virtual has taked itself with making the cloud something you can actually touch, through a product aptly named TouchCloud. With TouchCloud, any cloud-based application in Windows 2012 server, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 can enjoy touch compatibility without gruesome amounts of effort.

Adam Stern, CEO of Infinitely Virtual, said, “Users in small and midsize businesses have wanted to be able to run their Windows apps in the cloud, and share them with coworkers – and now they can. TouchCloud provides incredible mobility. Any tablet or mobile app in the world can take advantage of it. Now, it's easy to walk around and touch your Windows apps.”

Even if Windows' sales plummet and the operating system disappears into oblivion, the concept of cloud-centric touch-based apps has already reached center stage thanks to Infinitely Virtual's TouchCloud. We'll likely see a strong future in interfaces that interact through touch, with or without Windows at the helm.

“If it's in our cloud, it's touchable,” said Stern. “All you need is one of our virtual terminal server products and a Windows 8 or 8.1 touch-enabled application and you're good to go. You can run a remote desktop client and operate it with your finger or digitized pen. And you can use your touch-enabled app in the cloud with the apps that you're sharing.”
