"In such a competitive industry with creative and unique companies popping up everyday, it is an incredible honor to be named Developer of the Year,” Said Doherty.

Cloud Awards, an international cloud computing awards program that recognizes industry leaders and pioneers, has just named Dermot Doherty as "Developer of the Year" for his creation of a cloud-based operating system called iSpaces.

“Compiling the shortlist was difficult. But trying to pick individual winners in any category was almost impossible,” said Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson. “We are extremely pleased to endorse iSpaces as a cloud services provider which solves real-world problems for its clients, knocking down the barriers inherent in older business models and showing them to be outmoded – truly leveraging cloud technologies to be the best of the best.”

Doherty is both the Founder and Chief Technology Officer of iSpaces. Offering a free, integrated platform via the Web, iSpaces’ cloud-based operating system is the first true cloud computer that can liberate any local desktop. Users can access all things digital from any computer, anywhere, anytime.

“In such a competitive industry with creative and unique companies popping up everyday, it is an incredible honor to be named Developer of the Year,” Said Doherty. “My dream of creating a purely web-based operating system has finally come true after a lot of hard work and I’m grateful to be recognized for the effort.”

Born out of his frustration with the limitations of available technology, Doherty wanted to create a platform that simplified his digital life. iSpaces is a computer that lives on the Internet, not on a machine, and offers a variety of distinct features including a seamless file solution, office tools and a unique Web browser called RocketSpace. iSpaces OS allows users to log in and out of iSpaces from multiple computers without ever having to reopen their Web applications, tabs, and online documents—the state of a user's interface is saved to the cloud and redelivered on any Internet connected device.

With the upcoming launch of Beta 2.0, iSpaces will introduce SpacePhone, a free web-based phone that provides crystal clear audio, ContactSpace, a contact management application and a whole new user interface.

iSpaces is helping to transform the way individuals access their personal data and preferred applications, by putting a cloud computer into the hands of anyone who has Internet access—for free.

Founded in 2009 by Dermot Doherty and his wife, Sunne Justice, iSpaces™ is incorporated in Ireland and is a true virtual company with consultants and investors from around the world. iSpaces’ cloud-based operating system delivers a free integrated platform via the Web that users can access from any computer.
