Mini-Series Entry 2 of 3: Desktop Virtualization Sessions
This is the second entry of a three part mini-series looking at Oracle server and desktop virtualization at Oracle OpenWorld 2012.
In our previous entry
, we covered the Oracle Virtualization keynote session as well as hands on lab sessions you won't want to miss. Below are four key desktop virtualization sessions you can also add to your calendar.
Session ID: CON8799
The U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in Rome, New York, and partner Northrop Grumman provide the foundation of the Secure Access Baseline for the Enterprise (SABER) accredited desktop solution. At SABER’s core are Oracle desktop virtualization products. In this session, representatives from AFRL and Northrop Grumman join an Oracle speaker to discuss the unique security challenges of deploying desktops with extremely strict security requirements and how all organizations can benefit from following the SABER example when deploying their desktop architectures.
Session ID: CON8801
Over the last several years, use of personal devices in the enterprise has dramatically increased, with IT organizations rapidly learning to adapt to this changing landscape of application and desktop access. This session describes how Oracle desktop virtualization can help IT embrace employees’ use of their own devices for work-related activities while making applications, data, and desktops more secure and manageable.
Session ID: CON8802
Using public and private clouds has taken hold as a common way to deploy services to the enterprise. A burgeoning addition to the cloud model is cloud access to desktop applications. With Oracle’s comprehensive portfolio of hardware and software, engineered to work together, a complete desktop cloud solution can be designed for accessing Oracle Applications and other enterprise applications. In this session, learn how a complete cloud-based desktop application access solution can be deployed with Oracle technologies.
Session ID: CON8733
Oracle VM VirtualBox provides high performance, support for numerous virtual appliances available in the Open Virtualization Format (OVF), multiplatform application development and testing, 2-D/3-D graphics acceleration, and cutting-edge features—including the ability to teleport a running virtual machine between hosts. Oracle VM VirtualBox is a useful tool for developers who need to port code across different operating environments. Because Oracle VM VirtualBox enables hosting of multiple guest operating systems on a single machine, a developer can easily switch operating systems in no time, simply by changing between different desktop windows. In this session, you will understand why it will be your favorite tool as well.
You can read more about these and about 1,700 more Oracle OpenWorld sessions in the content catalog.
Tomorrow, we'll look at server virtualization. See you then!
