10ZiG: The company 


 


 

 



10zig company logo

As always there is often quite a bit of history. The snippets of information below come from a quick trawl of the internet. As such they may contain elements of 'marketing speak' for which I apologise.

Way back when there was (and still is) an Israeli company - Better On-Line Solutions - which these days seems to specialise in RFID technology.

BosaNova Logo BOSaNOVA, Inc was created in 2003 as an independent spin off from Better On-Line Solutions and is headquartered in Phoenix Arizona. BOSaNOVA is pioneering the development of enterprise-class thin client and network appliance solutions for LINUX, XP, and CE.Net. BOSaNOVA is an Advanced level member of IBM's PartnerWorld for Developers, Citrix Global Alliance Partner, and member of Microsoft's Windows Powered Program. For more information, visit www.bosanova.net.

Bosanova rabbit logo In January 2006 ...BOSaNOVA, Inc., the market leader in development and delivery of Thin Clients and Network Appliances announces today the addition of a new thin client, The Rabbit, to their already extensive product line.

10zig company logo In 2009 the company changed its name to 10ZiG Technology, the new company name being derived from Sherpa Tenzing. Tenzing is one of the most famous mountain climbers in history. He was one of the first two individuals known to have reached the summit of Mount Everest, which he accomplished with Sir Edmund Hillary on 29th May 1953. (Note: The BOSaNova name still lives on....)
