I'm Ravinder Jagdev and I have been working on an idea which I'd like to turn into a business.
The idea; Whats the problems with standard computers? Well when it comes to such things as updating, running out of storage, viruses are one big hassle. What I want to do is decentralize the computing hardware and software in the home and office.
Using VDI & Remote technology I'd like to create a service, in which consumers would be given a small box which would replace their computer (or they can use existing hardware) and they would have a fully featured desktop but it would be deployed from within a datacentre. All files, all software and such would be stored within a datacentre. Consumers would pay per year and choose their resources, CPU and such.
This creates a big advantage to the consumer, scalable computing. They can choose when to upgrade and when to downgrade and all of their data would be stored in a datacentre making it more secure.
What about businesses? The business version of this would work in mostly the same way however with the technology, people will be able to share files and such all without having a physical file server. All they would need is an internet connection. Also most big companies use Active Directory, this will be able to handle that too. So all the servers and such would be decentralized.
Licensing: Because of licencing, this service would be Windows only, however Mac OS remote computing could be offered though 3rd party services. As for windows, its completley possible and legal to do this.
Why is this different from LogMeIn? Many people who I have told this idea about seem to compare it to LogMeIn and such services. However its completley different. With Logmein you remote connect to your computer from another place or device. But This project doesnt need ANY computing hardware or software. All the proccessing would be done in the datacentre. Everything would be stored in the datacentre. And any hardware you already have will be compatible.
In the past year, I had been researching and exprimenting with different types of technologies (such as RDP) and I believe VDI is the one.
So what I'm looking for is a team, business partners and investors to help turn this project into a business.
