(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Today, Uboxu LLC announces the developer release of its all-new HTML5 computing platform for businesses. Uboxu consists of a tiny microserver appliance, and an online account management service, together, enabling the millions of web designers and developers in the world to create specialized business software using standard web tools and methods.
Uboxu was developed over a 7-year period and has been incubated by Brand Imaging Group in Antioch, Tennessee, and its owner, Scott Snoyer. The project is launching on the Kickstarter crowdfunding site today, with the goal of attracting web designers and developers from around the world to join the platform.
“When I learned about the Uboxu team and their project last year, I was thrilled to be able to step in and provide the financial and business management assistance they needed to take the last steps to market,” says Snoyer. “We’re starting with a run at the digital signage market, where we think we will have a major impact. Basically, we’re tossing the keys to the global digital signage market to millions of talented web developers, and turning them loose to go win that market.”
According to Ryan Quinn, the company’s lead software developer, the new computing solution combines new hardware, new software, and a unique online services system to enable small businesses to have more flexible, secure, and capable computing usability than any current approach, at a cost of under $300.
“Uboxu moves the cloud computing platform down from the Internet and runs it directly inside local businesses,” says Quinn. “This provides all of the benefits of cloud computing, such as no software maintenance and regular updates, without having a company’s data locked into a proprietary remote system like happens today. All of a company’s data remains in-house, as well as optionally backed up off-site for safety. Plus, any local web developer can now build and maintain the software a business needs.”
Uboxu added that it is running a crowdfunding project for the next 30-days on kickstarter.com to help in its developer recruitment efforts. These early developers have a chance to buy the computer and software tools needed to create business software apps at a significant discount, and get early access to the platform through that project.
The company says that it has also launched a web site showing and explaining the new platform athttp://www.uboxu.com.
Starting today, web developers around the world can get started creating business apps for Uboxu at the company’s crowdfunding project on kickstarter.com. Or, they can learn more on the company’s web site athttp://www.uboxu.com.
Uboxu is a Nashville, Tennessee based company revolutionizing small business computing with its inexpensive next-generation HTML5 computing platform.
