SMX iNet Global Services has launched Nivio, the online desktop for Windows operating system in India on Friday. Nivio provides the online experience of a Windows desktop and is accessible from any internet-enabled device, including Mac or Linux computers.
"Originally named myremoteworkstation, I dreamed of a desktop that was anywhere and nowhere; that was stress-free and fault-less. And Nivio was born," said Sachin Duggal, founder and CEO of Nivio in a statement.
"We aim at registering 100,000 trial users by end of December 2007," added Iqbal Gandham, chief business strategist at Nivio.
The online software market is expanding as the internet becomes seamless. Google already offers online equivalents of Microsoft's Word, Excel and PowerPoint. It also offers a personalised desktop with iGoogle. Nivio is different in the sense that it is independent of the operating system.
