LOS ANGELES — OTOY Inc., has introduced X.IO App Streaming, a new application virtualization service that instantaneously ports Windows desktop applications to the cloud without needing to modify any code. This enables users to access them on any Internet-connected device, regardless of form factor or platform.
Using technology OTOY gained from the AppSlingr acquisition earlier this year, X.IO was built from the ground up to handle the demanding nature of graphics-intensive applications, including image editing, CAD, and 3D modeling and rendering applications, making the editing of complex files a breeze on low-performance devices, though the service is equally suitable for any Windows application.
With X.IO App Streaming, application developers and independent software vendors (ISVs) can realize the most from their development investments, saving money in development costs and the need to retool development team skill sets while making their applications multi-platform and device agnostic. Users gain one-click access to any application along with use of cloud storage including Dropbox, Box, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive accounts, improving collaboration by making the sharing and editing of documents easier.
“The cloud has enabled a new wave of collaborative software that has transformed enterprises and startups alike through collective sharing and editing, but legacy applications, especially demanding workstation-class applications have largely been left behind until today,” explains Jules Urbach, founder and CEO of OTOY. “X.IO App Streaming gives developers an incredibly simple, cost-effective way to empower their employees and end customers, giving them access to workstation-class applications and performance and a full-function user experience from virtually any device with an Internet connection all without needing to change a thing in the development pipeline.”
The service is currently in beta with a launch planned for later this year.
