Friday Spotlight: Oracle Secure Global Desktop and amitego VISULOX

Happy Friday!

Our spotlight this week is a screencast about a fantastic solution that takes the security model of Oracle Secure Global Desktop and adds even more features.

If you work in environments where you need to have a video record of users' interactions with applications, or need to ensure that two users can remotely work on the same session (a worker entering data in a form from one workstation and a manager typing an authorization code from another, for example), amitego VISULOX can do this and a lot more. It's built on top of Oracle Secure Global Desktop, so you get all of the great features there, plus additional unique security related features provided by VISULOX.

Friday Spotlight: Oracle VM VirtualBox and PeopleSoft

Happy SysAdmin day and happy Friday!

Our spotlight this week is a very cool use case for Oracle VM VirtualBox. You’re probably familiar with Oracle VM VirtualBox, it lets you run multiple, different operating systems on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Solaris. It’s really a fantastic tool for running, say, Windows on your Mac, or an Oracle Linux test environment on your Windows machine. But this is a unique use case for it, it’s used to host the PeopleSoft Update Manager.

Our friends over at the PeopleSoft Apps Strategy blog have a blog post about PeopleSoft Update Manager, and links to several documentation videos. If you use PeopleSoft, this will be some great information for you. And if not, it might give you some ideas on how to leverage virtual appliances running in Oracle VM VirtualBox for your own projects!

See you next week!
