The Enterprisers Project chats with Kenji

“I asked Kenji Obata, Founder and CEO, Spoon.net for his take on how infrastructure changes will affect the enterprise over the next 2 years.”

“‘Over the next 2 years, the very definition of IT infrastructure will change from physical resources — computers, networks, and servers — to knowledge resources — applications, information, and users. As employees increasingly use their own devices and control the location and tools they use in their job, the primary role of the CIO will be to facilitate the choices made by users while preserving the security and availability of business information…’”

TechCrunch: “Why Seattle is not like Silicon Valley”

Spoon received a nice shout out today in a TechCrunch article comparing the Emerald City to Silicon Valley. Of course, Seattle is incomparable, but that’s besides the point. Check out this interesting piece by recently-banished Spoon summer intern Anne Seckinger.

Goodbye and Thanks

LANDesk Interchange ’14 was an absolute blast! Your loyal Spoon team trekked down to Las Vegas a few weeks ago to proudly represent LANDesk’s suite of virtualization products. We shared some hot new features, met other awesome LANDesk partners, and lost way too much money. (Seriously, those craps machines are totally rigged.) Read on to learn more about our exciting trip.

Introducing Selenium on Spoon – an online grid with unlimited hours and parallel tests

Spoonium home page

Well folks, we’re pretty excited over here. Over the past few years, literally trillions of customers have asked us how they can combine a sweet open-source testing tool called Selenium with our beloved Browser Sandbox.

And by golly, we finally did it. Today, we’re excited to introduce Spoonium, an online Selenium Grid with unlimited testing of Chrome, IE, and Firefox.

To be honest, we didn’t think it would be this cool, but it is. When building Spoonium, we looked at what’s out there today, and we saw four major problems:

  1. Limits on hours of use
  2. Limits on parallel tests
  3. Potential security issues when testing internal sites
  4. Performance and wait times

No bueno.

So, what does Spoonium offer?

  1. Unlimited hours of use
  2. Unlimited parallel tests
  3. Secure virtual containers that directly access local resources
  4. High-performance test execution with no waiting in test queues

And it’s totally free while in beta! Go crazy and test as much as you’d like. Send your feedback to support@spoonium.net and share Spoonium on Twitter to win a free Spoon t-shirt.

Enjoy.

Spoon Florida Hackathon 2014

Network World reviews Spoon’s Browser Studio

“Spoon’s Browser Studio takes secure browsing in a somewhat different direction. The idea is to virtualize the browser for your own particular needs and free the various other Web components from being installed on your general desktop… Basically, you assemble the browser that you wish to use from various components: you begin with a code base using Chrome, Firefox, or IE. Then you add various plug-ins such as Java, Flash or Acrobat and other helper apps and when you are done, publish that version to your cloud account.

“This means that once you go through this process, you don’t have to install (or can eliminate) Java or Flash on your desktop if you don’t need it outside of the browsing experience. Another plus is that Spoon does not require administrative privileges on the desktop, so browsers can be used in locked-down desktop environments… The upside is that you can assemble exactly the right set of components that you can distribute to your enterprise and have complete control over them.
