Thinspace's Customers Can Now Extend the Life of Older PCs

This provides customers with up-to-date desktop without any additional expenses

PORT ORANGE, Fla., Jan. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Thinspace Technology Inc. (OTCQB: THNS; "Thinspace or the "Company"), a global provider of reliable, scalable and affordable application delivery, virtualization, and cloud computing technology to public and private sector companies and organizations of all sizes, today announced the development of its Linux client or skyClient for Ubuntu which allows customers to convert dated PCs to new managed end points for desktop virtualization.

In addition to hardware managed endpoints, Thinspace has released a soft client for Ubuntu that enables enterprises to switch from MS Windows based desktops to Linux based desktops, while delivering the virtual desktop from the data-center. It allows customers to utilize older, existing hardware which is no longer compatible with the latest Windows OS.  With a soft client, customers can re-purpose this hardware, install Ubuntu and use it as a managed endpoint. The soft client converts the typical Ubuntu OS to kiosk mode, providing a centrally controlled and managed work environment. Users do not have access to local storage of the OS and can only work on their virtual desktop.

Chris Bautista, Thinspace Technology CEO commented, "Our Linux software client is a great addition to Thinspace endpoints.  Customers can now extend the life of older PCs by converting them into managed endpoints that work on our end-to-end desktop virtualization platform.  Not only does this provide them with the most up-to-date desktop, but it also achieves this without any additional hardware expense."

Thinspace Technology operates in high growth B2B markets of desk top virtualization and cloud computing solutions – which 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.  Thinspace achieved third quarter 2014 revenue of $2.322 million, and nine months ended September 30, 2014 revenue of $5.701 million, representing year-over-year improvements of 464% and 479%, respectively.

Gartner research predicts the global desk top virtualization market to surpass $65 billion in 2015.
