Remote PCs Popularity of Remote PC Control Applications on the Rise

April 23rd, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

The remote desktop software market is expanding rapidly, as mobile office environments become widespread.

Google released the Chrome Remote Desktop App for Android on April 21, which allows a desktop to be controlled remotely by an Android handset. The application is available for free on Google Play.

Until recently, Microsoft’s free Remote Desktop and Parallels Access have been the two most popular remote PC control applications for Windows and Mac users, respectively. However, those released these days provide additional functions such as multiple access and multiple platforms. The functions of such remote desktop control software are increasingly diversified along with the increase in the types of mobile devices in use, too.

TeamViewer is currently marketing its remote PC control software with the same name for remote access via the Internet. The software supports remote printing, and allows a PC to be turned on remotely. Parallels Access 1.1, which was released by Parallels in February, is optimized for Apple’s iPad. It shows desktop software on the iPad after an adjustment process and supports gesture functions as well. It can be used on not only for Mac OS X but Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1.


Key to Red Hat’s business is ambition for OpenShift, OpenStack

April 23rd, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

Red Hat is not just a Linux company anymore. In the last few years the vendor has managed to extend its reach to every corner of the enterprise, from the network through the virtualization layer to the public cloud and beyond, while maintaining a razor sharp focus on the community. SiliconANGLE founder John Furrier and Wikibon’s Stu Miniman took a close look at the firm’s roadmap at the recently concluded Red Hat Summit in San Francisco, which attracted a record 45,000 attendees and saw the announcement of several important product updates spanning the entire stack.

“If software is eating the world and open source is a major component of the future of software, then this is the epicenter of that revolution,” Miniman remarks on theCUBE’s opening segment at the event. Leveraging its leadership position as a stepping stone, Red Hat has established itself at the forefront of the new wave of open source innovation. But the competition is only increasing as traditional rivals such as Microsoft reinforce the data center front while Amazon continues to push deeper into the enterprise, disrupting everything in its wake.

“Red Hat has been entrenched for decades in open source and it’s really grown up with the industry, and now open source is maturing at an accelerating rate faster than ever before. But the game is still the same,” Furrier observes. The stakes have never been higher and the market is moving faster than anyone has expected, yet the fundamentals remain unchanged. “You got the infrastructure component of the cloud, you got the application development component of the cloud, you got all that middleware at the platform-as-a-service layer, and finally you got the ecosystem.”

OpenShift: central to the strategy


Red Hat’s continued success hinges entirely on its ability to engage partners and developers, which is why Furrier sees its OpenShift platform-as-a-service as essential to the firm’s long-term vision. OpenStack is another core pillar, with the firm working to repackage the cloud platform as an extra layer of value on top of its flagship Linux distribution. And it also actively contributes to the OpenDaylight Project, an ambitious initiative that aims to develop a set of common standards for software-defined networking.

Miniman sees the company’s heavy involvement in the broader open source community as positive and indeed, very much necessary. “Red Hat is making bets with their resources and their dollars to make sure that as the market is changing, they got good position and good will in the community also,” he explains.

The efforts of Red Hat and other like-minded vendors helped transform open source software from an economic alternative to proprietary solutions into a growth catalyst for the entire IT industry, Furrier highlights. “Open source is now fully commercialized as a tier one frontrunner platform for all the software innovations,” he says. “The disruption behind that is an industrial revolution-like shift, at the heart of this is virtualization and now the big news here, this notion of containers.”

Containers breed confidence

Containers are a central focus for Red Hat. At the event, the firm announced a number of milestones in its partnership with Docker, a leading provider of containerization software for Linux applications that Furrier notes recently raised funding from veteran turned venture capitalist Jerry Chen. The investment is a major vote of confidence in the both the startup and the technology, which has been around for quite time but only now beginning to gain traction in the enterprise.

Besides being less resource-intensive than traditional hypervisors like VMware’s ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V, containers also enable interoperability across different types of environments, functionality that is absolutely essential to Red Hat’s vision for open source hybrid computing.

“The party line at this show is ‘physical, virtual, private and public’, those four environments,” Miniman details. “As CIOs try to figure out where their applications live, Red Hat is gonna have a solution that is gonna be enterprise-ready and they’re gonna help drive that home and be in that next-generation platform.”
Growing ambition for OpenStack


The on-premise piece of Red Hat’s hybrid puzzle is naturally OpenStack, which is still in its early stages but holds immense revenue potential for the company. “There’s some work to do on OpenStack and Red Hat needs to build their partnerships and ecosystem, but there is a huge opportunity in front of them,” Miniman says. The vendor has teamed up with Dell to capitalize on this opening, and the pair recently launched a new line of integrated solutions that combine the platform with Linux, OpenShift and Docker. He believes that the partnership is a good move for both companies and a potential step closer towards winning developers over to the Red Hat cause.

The way Miniman sees it, the firm “has always been a good partner in the ecosystem, driving that Linux message out. And they’re really trying to increase their position in the marketplace, trying to become the Red Hat of OpenStack, trying to push their virtualization solution more, going after the developer community.”

If realized, Red Hat’s ambitions for OpenStack would not only cement its position as the dominant force in the open source landscape the but also put wind behind the sails of the broader community, catapulting the platform into the enterprise mainstream. “Red Hat is now going to be the master of their own domain by setting the agenda for OpenStack. If they can do that and galvanize the industry with an ecosystem behind them they could run the table on OpenStack and be enterprise-grade,” according to Furrier.


Lenovo Selects Hillcrest’s In-Air Pointing and Motion Control Software for New Smart TVs

April 23rd, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

Hillcrest Labs announced today that Lenovo’s new line of Smart TVs is using Hillcrest’s patented Freespace® in-air pointing and motion control software. Freespace enables point-and-click, gesture and motion control of Smart TVs through simple in-air movements of a remote control. Lenovo’s Freespace-enabled Smart TVs include the new S9 Smart TV that was unveiled on April 16 for sale across China.

Freespace will form the foundation of Lenovo’s Smart TV user experience and enable improved content navigation, better gaming options, and simple Web browsing. It provides simple to use point-and-click controls and 3D motion tracking optimized for consumers in the living room environment. This is particularly important for Android™ TVs, as the technology replicates the touch and tilt based controls commonly used by Android apps on other devices.

“We are very proud that Lenovo has chosen Freespace motion interface technology as the foundation of its Smart TV user interface,” said Dan Simpkins, CEO of Hillcrest Labs. “A strong brand, spirit of innovation, and focus on quality will undoubtedly establish Lenovo as a Smart TV market leader. We are pleased that our products and intellectual property will be used throughout Lenovo’s impressive Smart TV product line.”

“Smart TV adoption continues at a tremendous pace, and we fully intend to take a leadership role in this market,” said Xiong Wen, General Manager of Digital Home Business Unit at Lenovo. “Hillcrest is a proven global leader in motion-enabled TV products with essential intellectual property that enables key features in these products. Moving forward, Freespace will be a core technology for our Smart TVs. Together, we will deliver the best user interfaces for TV, Web, and apps across Smart TVs.”

Lenovo’s choice of Freespace is further evidence of the technology’s importance across advanced Smart TV platforms. It also marks another major, Asia-based consumer electronics OEM to adopt Hillcrest’s technology. To support this growing market, Hillcrest also announced today that it will open a new regional office based in Taiwan, which will address the local demand for Freespace in Smart TVs, smartphones, tablets, wearable electronics, and more. The office will consist of both sales and technical support staff to support Hillcrest’s growing customer base in the region.
