Mainframe2 Unveils Stunning New Cloud That Runs ANY Software From a Web Browser at DEMO 2013

Disruptive Technology Easily Transforms Even the Most Powerful and Graphically Intense Software Into Cloud-Hosted Applications Available to Any Device, On-Demand

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 17, 2013) - Mainframe2, an innovator in cloud computing, announced and demonstrated its unique ability to deliver any software to a Web browser at DEMO 2013, a launch event exclusively concentrated on the best emerging technologies based on innovation and market potential. Dr. Nikola Bozinovic, founder and CEO of Mainframe2, showed an audience of worldwide technology veterans and press how any device (such as the Google Chromebook Pixel) running only a browser can now run even high-end 2D and 3D design software from the cloud. 

"Sun's John Gage said in 1984 that 'the network is the computer' -- a vision which modern Web-based software ranging from CRM tools to multimedia players is certainly living up to," said Dr. Bozinovic. "But many types of software such as Photoshop and AutoCAD are still delivered as packaged software designed to run locally on powerful and costly workstations. Today, leveraging the multi-year investments made by graphics industry leaders -- NVIDIA, Intel, and AMD -- we enable anyone with a browser to access these types of tools to unleash their creativity, design new products, and solve some of the world's most challenging problems." 

With the disruptive Mainframe2 solution hundreds of thousands of existing software titles developed over the past several decades can now join the new world of cloud computing and be just one click away. "Our EnSight simulation software is used by NASA, Ford, BMW, Boeing, and others to avoid dangerous, expensive and time-consuming physical testing," said Darin McKinnis, VP of Sales and Marketing of CEI Software, a spin-off of Cray Research. "The Mainframe2 solution gives us a whole new way to give our existing clients incredible flexibility and lets us reach out to an entirely new class of users."

Highlights

  • Easy: Unlike other remoting technologies, Mainframe2 makes it incredibly fast and easy to transform existing Windows software into cloud-delivered applications. Installing and configuring software on the Mainframe2 cloud takes just minutes. And only an HTML5 capable browser with no plugins and no additional client software is required at endpoints ranging from PCs and Macs to Chromebooks, tablets, and smart phones. 
  • Powerful: Mainframe2 enables ANY Windows application to be delivered via the cloud, irrespective of compute, storage, and graphics requirements. Even high-end workstation class applications that require dedicated GPUs such as advanced 2D and 3D design and visualization software can be delivered with complete fidelity to a variety of endpoints.
  • Disruptive: For most of the software developed over the last 30 years, the transition to a cloud-hosted, pay-as-you-go model has proven to be incredibly difficult. Completely re-writing client software such as Adobe Photoshop and AutoCAD for the Web has proven to be far too difficult, time consuming and expensive -- leaving many vendors and their end-users with few choices for joining the new cloud computing age. Mainframe2 enables ISVs to much more easily demo, deliver and monetize their solutions while giving end-users a whole new degree of flexibility for running their favorite software in which they have collectively invested billions of hours. As a result, Mainframe2 will help accelerate mainstream adoption of cloud computing.

Mainframe2 is rolling out its new disruptive solutions to ISVs and end-users throughout Q4, 2013 with ground-breaking on-demand pricing. For more information, demos, and updates on how to get started with MAINFRAME2 visit www.mainframe2.com
