Simplify Application and Data Access with Oracle Desktop Virtualisation

Many companies claim they’ll handle your application access needs, and yet only Oracle can provide you with every component needed for secure and reliable access to Oracle Applications and other enterprise software from a variety of devices. This means you can design your deployment knowing that all of the pieces work together, from applications and virtualisation to servers and storage systems.

  • How to provide secure access to applications and data from nearly anywhere on a wide range of devices
  • Use cases for desktop virtualisation
  • How desktop virtualisation can support a wider business transformation agenda
  • Reasons to embrace employees using their own devices for work-related activities

More Storage Options for VDI 3.4

Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure 3.4 has been released. This time we focused on the storage area. Until now Solaris ZFS and Oracle OpenStorage had been the primary storage solutions for VDI. In fact it was the only option for VDI with the hypervisor VirtualBox. Now you can connect almost any storage solution in combination with VirtualBox.

I am going to update my VDI Overview presentation for 3.4.  But here is a sneak preview with the updates in the storage layer:

VDiPad

This is bizarre. At least it is not the originally intended use for an iPad. But it makes sense in some situations to be able to access your corporate desktop from anywhere.

The photos show the Oracle Virtual Desktop Client app connecting to Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, providing a Windows instance running on VirtualBox in the data center.
