Market and competitive research:

Presently, businesses must deal with at least two companies to have a fully functional cloud solution – a hardware provider and a cloud provider.

 

Dell & HP provide remote desktop hardware solutions called thin clients. They are ugly, slow and complicated to set up.

 

AWS and Azure provide cloud services that require costly technical experts to manage.

 

SKYGrid is the first to offer a single vendor solution. SKYGrid competitors on the hardware side are Dell thin/zero client and the HP thin/zero client. Cloud services competitors include Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure.

Current project status:

The MVP desktop product has been developed. A fully functional MVP is ready for sale.

 

SKYGrid units are in the production stage and are ready to ship. These sales will provide validation for the product as it functions in the real work environment for the first time.

 

SKYGrid is in the process of switching from 3D printing to small scale manufacturing of 50 units with a local partner.

 

They are developing partnership agreements with Canadian, American and European small cloud providers to rent server space to support their workstations.

 

After we complete two x 50 unit orders we will then reduce the manufacturing cost of the hardware, working on the soft steel injection molding for production of 2,000 units.

 

After MVP’s are proven successful, a further 50 units will be ordered for use.

 

They have a second product laptop in development with Ericsson Canada. A prototype is in development that will use the same technology from the desktop version and add 5G connection.

 

We will test MVP’s for a mobile version of SKYGrid Mobile 5G.

Customer research:

A survey was conducted through Facebook groups and with beta test customers. SKYGrid was well received.

 

The only concern was data security since we are a startup.

Pitches to investors, pitch competitions, accelerators:

SKYGrid was pitched to investors, pitch competitions and accelerators, and was successfully funded by Batchery angel investors.

Key technologies and/or components used in product:

Our proprietary single cable Work Streaming Station delivers in a model generally called “Desktop as a Service” (DaaS).

 

SKYGrid uses cloud computing combined with powerline technology.
