Multiple Desktops and a Browser in the cloud, for FREE!

What is the name of the site and URL?
Our company is called iSpaces and can be found online at www.ispaces.com

A brief synopsis of the website / application ?

iSpaces gives you a free, virtual multi-desktop and a browser in the cloud. Having a virtual desktop dramatically simplifies your digital life. If for example, Facebook, LinkedIn, and a Zoho spreadsheet are all open in iSpaces on a home desktop—they’ll be just where you left them when you login from your work computer as well.

Why did you start this company?

At the time I was working from multiple computers and was tired of wasting time logging in and out and re-launching all of my Web applications and files. I wanted to create something that was easily accessible and persistent.

A short bio of your company.

Founded in 2009 by software engineer Dermot Doherty and his wife, Sunne Justice, iSpaces™ is incorporated in Ireland and is a true virtual company with consultants and investors from around the world. iSpaces is a cloud computer — your virtual desktop that runs in WindowsXP, Windows 7, and Linux. Providing a free, multi-desktop cloud computer, iSpaces is fast and offers persistent NonStopWeb™. With minimal effort and time, iSpaces will simplify your digital life.

Was your company started on a shoestring budget or funded?

Our company was originally started by my wife and I on less than a shoestring, just total sweat, hard work and personal savings. After the first 6 months, we had a small group of angel investors join us.

Who is your competition, and what do you do better?

There are companies out there who offer cloud services, but iSpaces is the only provider that gives users a “browser within a browser,” which we call our CloudBrowser™ Our CloudBrowser is what maintains the state of a user’s interface and allows all of their Web applications and files to remain open no matter what computer they login from.

Why would a small business, entrepreneur, freelancer, etc use your product?

iSpaces will simplify their digital life! The new paradigm is cloud computing and the sooner computer users begin to move into the cloud, the better. They will never have to worry again about a lost jump drive or hard drive crash. Once they move into the iSpaces cloud, all their history, bookmarks, and files will be there forever or a lifetime—whichever comes first. Another added benefit is that iSpaces is free and users no longer have to login and out of their various Web applications—a huge time saver!

Do you offer free online or offline tools?

Yes, iSpaces is free!

Are there different pricing levels?

iSpaces is still in its infancy and in a beta release. We will soon offer more storage for a small monthly free, but as of now all of our offerings are free.

Do you have a blog that keeps users updated?

We are about to launch our blog called FamilySpace soon. iSpaces is a family business and our blog will bring users into the iSpaces family and keep them up to date on all angles of our company.

Number of current users? Estimated yearly growth?

After just 2 months we currently have over 1,000 users! We hope to grow this number exponentially by the end of the year.

How do you see your company in the next 2-5 years (more products or services?)

iSpaces will continue to expand to include all platforms and browsers, as well as expansion into smartphone and tablets. Increased functionality and additional features, through both our own development and strategic relationships will ensure you never have to leave iSpaces! We will also launch iSpaces developer platform and app store. iSpaces will also offer specific business solutions in the next few years.

How many employees do you currently have working with you and/or freelance contractors?

Right now we have 10 independent contractors working for iSpaces along with 9 college students we call our iVangelists. These students are not paid, but receive hands-on experience on bringing a company to market. They spread the news about iSpaces to their peers on campus and in return have equity in the company.

Are you looking to hire more people or contractors? If so, what positions and skills are you looking for?

Yes we are building our development team and seeking JavaScript engineers and a strong product manager.

What other web based products would you recommend to entrepreneurs, business owners, or freelancers?

There are so many great web-based products out there for entrepreneurs and they all work inside iSpaces! A few of my favorites are Dropbox, HootSuite, Zoho, Google Reader, Rapportive, and LastPass.

Any Patents Pending?
Yes, we have a patent pending for our windowing technology.
