Its always said, "Great ideas are born humble" similarly are few such business ideas.
Our entrepreneur of the week Velroy was into networking and web domain technologies at the start of his career, providing web support etc. Being closely associated with the technology sector in India, he felt that less focus was given on connectivity and how outages was making people suffer. “Rather we give a lot of importance to web based applications but less to the challenges of connectivity” says the young entrepreneur. Thus this challenge presented Velroy with an opportunity to embark on his entrepreneurial journey.
Briefing about his web startup ('ThomasWireless') Velroy says, “ it will specifically try to address all the Internet Service Provider (ISP) related temporary (DNS) disruptions/outages through focusing on designing & development of web based 'OFFLINE' technologies and applications which (in the long run) could lead to an to an internet free from all such related temporary disruptions"
The initial goal will be, creating such kind of 'TECHNOLOGY MECHANISM’ which will DELAY the temporary ISP based DNS outages in REAL TIME extending from few microseconds to seconds, ultimately extending towards minutes without any additional modifications or network infrastructure based resource utilization.
In other words, its like letting lights go dim slowly & then to dark inspite of switching off.
The Business Ideology –
On the business model Velroy says, “ThomasWireless largely relies on an 'Open Source Policy' allowing like-minded web/internet technology professionals, developers and enthusiasts to be part of my effort through few of my proprietary web technologies to make internet an 'Outage-Free Internet'.”
Products & Services -
*MagDale* (TM) Web Browser -
First in the line of development of product/s is my Open Source web browser christened 'MagDale', a possibly one-of-its-kind web browser to be based on Ruby on Rails (web based application) framework and MARRYING Web Syndication Technology (RSS/Atom) respectively.
Till today, web syndication's available & popular technology was only used for providing its web based subscribers with frequently updating website content based on popular web syndication technology formats, RSS/Atom through ' Aggregators ' (Feed Reader). However, web feed/s will play a (part) key role in web pages rendering with MagDale browser.
It wil be 'glued' (integrated) using cross platform object oriented programming platform/s (most preferably 'JRuby' ) with the popular web rendering/layout engine esp. WebKit.
Few of MagDale features will be: Virtual machine compatibility, Browser based remote desktop access, Parallel Browsing (Application resource sharing proprietory technology, for browser clients on a enterprise network managing similar secure web session on a company's intranet..etc ),
Boot functionality - To lay foundation for spinning web based OS'es services across internet, supporting existing online/internet based data storage solutions....etc
Feedle *(TM) - An Search Engine for Web Feeds
An search engine service for RSS/Atom feeds, popularly referred as 'Web Feeds' will be second in line of development. FEEDLE will help create an 'interface/medium' were the prospective feed subscribers will find a one-roof solution to explore/search & manage all the web feed/s based update/s. This unique initiative will make sure the respective feed owners get some kind or other form of 'perk' if anyone uses/subscribes their web feeds.
Feedle's User Interface (U/I) will ensure an organized way to make their respective web feeds been heard & subscribed more popularly over web.
*'INTLL'* - An Internet Protocol:
INTLL://- A Session Layer protocol will be third in the line of development, ‘tunneled’ to work over Application Layer based on HTTP technology with an minimal to negligible level of upgrades/changes to the existing network infrastructure. An unusual thing about it would be its ability in performing amidst sudden/unexpected ISP based short term DNS disruptions.
Talking about the Sun Startup essentials he says that it has helped in many ways to overcome the problems startups face be it gaining visibility or getting the right technical advice. “It has been a great experience working with SSE and I have benefitted a lot from this” he says.
Velroy has many interesting ideas and concepts in the pipeline. YourStory wishes him all the very best and hope to see all his ideas shaping well.
We will keep you updated on Velroy and his venture ThomasWireless in the days to come.
