Oracle Desktop Virtualization Security Solution at DISA Mission Partner Conference 2012

Oracle desktop virtualization is showcased with the Oracle Cross Domain Security Solution and Oracle Systems at the DISA (Defense Information Systems Agency) Mission Partner Conference 2012.  This annual DISA conference brings together decision-makers and subject-matter experts from the military services, combatant commands, industry, and academia to share information and ideas that are of mutual interest and are critical to helping the U.S. Department of Defense achieve mission success.  The conference also features a list of stellar speakers including Oracle President Mark Hurd as the featured speaker on Wednesday May 8, 2012.

Oracle Sun Ray Clients and Oracle Solaris with Trusted Extensions are key elements of the accredited Cross Domain Security Solution used by the U.S. Federal Government.  The Oracle Solution for Single Level Security adds the Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure software for the secure access and provisioning of Windows 7 Virtual Desktops.

This years DISA Conference theme is “The Joint Enterprise: Delivered Through Partnership.”  As described by Lt. General Ronnie Hawkins: "DISA realizes that delivering an enterprise that improves security, enhances effectiveness, achieves efficiency, enables innovation, and reduces the warfighter’s burden can be achieved by working with our mission partners".

Oracle Sun Ray Clients are featured at the Oracle Booth for the DISA 2012 Mission Assurance Conference. Solaris Trusted Extensions provide the cross domain multi-level security solution shown to the left with green and red window labeling indicating the security level.

Integrated labeling enforce secure access across security domains and applications including access to Windows desktops hosted on Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.  The Oracle Cross Domain Security Solution supports the Federal Government Common Access Card and SIPR Token Cards.

Lt. General Ronnie Hawkins stops by the Oracle Booth to discuss the Oracle Cross Domain Security Solution with Oracle sales consultants at the DISA Mission Partner Conference 2012.

HIMSS 2012 and Oracle Desktop Virtualization

Last year, Oracle desktop virtualization provided the demonstration platform for all of the Oracle demos at the 2011 HIMSS Conference. If you're not familiar with The HIMSS Conference, it's one of the most important healthcare IT shows in the industry.

This year, we're proud to say that Oracle and Oracle desktop virtualization are back at HIMSS12, once again providing the stations for all of the Oracle demos in the Oracle booth. This is significant because it shows that Oracle desktop virtualization is an ideal platform for providing access to Oracle Applications.

New this year is the Oracle Virtual Desktop Client for iPad. This handy free download from the Apple App Store enables mobile access to applications and healthcare solutions that don't have native iPad clients themselves, by "front-ending" them with Oracle desktop virtualization (I've talked about the Oracle Virtual Desktop Client for iPad in several other posts). This means you can take nearly any existing application, and make it instantly available on the iPad. Each demo pod will feature an Oracle Sun Ray Client, and there will be iPads around the booth as well, so you can see how easy it is to work from either device, and freely move your session back and forth. And, of course, Oracle desktop virtualization supports standard PCs, Macs, and more, so you can work on practically any device you have access to.

If you're planning on going to HIMSS12, please stop by our booth and see how Oracle desktop virtualization delivers on the promise of caregiver mobility, and provides better access to critical data from nearly any location.
