MokaFive’s angel investors and board members include Vinod Khosla, the venture capitalist, and Bill Raduchel, former chief technology officer of AOL Time Warner and former chief strategy officer of Sun Microsystems.
The MokaFive team is trying to bring the benefits of virtualization to desktops and laptops — security, energy efficiency, flexibility and less need for technical support. Several corporations have been sampling MokaFive’s technology for months in pilot projects. But the Silicon Valley company is announcing on Monday that its software will be commercially available in June.
The company is first marketing its software to corporations to help them improve security and reduce technical support costs on their desktop PC’s. But the larger vision, according to the MokaFive Web site, is to offer users “freedom from hardware, freedom from spyware, freedom to carry your computing environment as you wish and the freedom to choose the operating system, application and content that is right for you.”
