vVizion’s Virtual Desktops Allows FileMaker Developers to turn Desktop Applications into Cloud Computing Applications

Howell, NJ, August 13, 2009 -- Awaisi, Inc. is pleased to offer on-demand virtual desktops and servers through its vVizion, Inc. branded services. vVizion, Inc. currently offers two major products, vOfficetm and Office in a Boxtm.

vOfficetm: As the market has started to move towards cloud computing, enterprise-level applications can now be created on the web. While these Web 2.0 applications offer features such as ease of access through any web browser, they are lacking on some of the full functionality that FileMaker Pro applications have had, such as database locking and auto-saving records. vVizion’s solution to this quandary of full functionality vs. cloud computing is a Web 3.0 solution, vOffice. vOffice is a virtual desktop that can be accessed from any Internet connection, upon which a FileMaker developer can deploy applications to their client base. Because vOffice is a desktop environment, the developer can make full use of all the tools and features of a full installation of FileMaker Pro; because the desktop can be accessed from anywhere, the developer has the benefits of global access for the application created in FileMaker Pro.

The vOffice desktop comes in the following packages:


  • Windows XP or Vista via ICA
  • Wyse Thin Client for remote access
  • Microsoft Office Professional Plus
  • Security Software includes anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-spam
  • Exchange Email Account
