The rap on cloud computing has been that it's out there, vague and amorphous, and not really anything you can touch.Think again.
Leading cloud server provider Infinitely Virtual has introduced TouchCloud and with it, virtually any cloud-based app can be touched from just about anywhere.
TouchCloud combines Windows 2012 Server and Windows 8 or 8.1 touch-screen capabilities, automatically touch-enabling all Windows 8/8.1 applications in the cloud.
"Users in small and midsize businesses have wanted to be able to run their Windows apps in the cloud, and share them with coworkers --and now they can," said
TouchCloud is ideally suited to applications like QuickBooks, Peachtree Accounting, centralized MS Office, ERP packages and more, Stern said.
"If it's in our cloud, it's touchable," he said. "All you need is one of our virtual terminal server products and a Windows 8 or 8.1 touch-enabled application and you're good to go. You can run a remote desktop client and operate it with your finger or digitized pen. And you can use your touch-enabled app in the cloud with the apps that you're sharing."
