Amitego's Tools Updated for latest Oracle Secure Global Desktop [34979]
By Chris Kawalek

Chris writes, "Our spotlight this week is on a fantastic tool, VISOLUX Helpdesk from Amitego. If you're a user of Oracle Secure Global Desktop, you have probably heard of Amitego. They provide tools that extend the feature set of Oracle Secure Global Desktop.

Whereas Oracle Secure Global Desktop is primarily designed for secure remote access to applications and desktops for a single user, Amitego provides extra, complementary tools to control and manage secure access for multiple users to the same session. This is really useful in situations such as where a manager needs to approve a transaction, or if two people with trusted information are needed to complete a task, or, perhaps the most common scenario, providing helpdesk services..."

Reduce IT Help Desk calls when using Oracle VDI [31194]
Average cost of a help desk call is $25

Jaap, an Oracle VDI Desktop Virtualization specialist, writes in a recent blog post, "After a relaxing holiday you turn on your Sun Ray or launch your OVDC application to connect to your virtual desktop in the data center. But then it happens, your holiday was so relaxed that you forgot your password and you are forced to pick-up the phone and call the IT Help Desk to ask the SysAdmin to reset your password.

With the introduction of complex password requirements, this is not an unusual scenario. IT staff is often burdened with resolving these calls, resulting in an increased administrative load for the IT department. At the same moment, the end user loses valuable work time because he is locked out of the network temporarily and unable to work.

With an average of 5% of the users who forgot their passwords after the holidays and an average cost of US $25 per help desk call, this can cost an organisation with 10.000 users around US $12.500 per two or three days when the holidays are over.

How can we solve this? ..."

Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Aligns with the Experts. [27247]
Briforum 2012 Presentation Recommends Hybrid Storage Arrays

In his post on Oracle's virtualization blog, Jeff Reilly cites the BriForum 2012 presentation by Ron Oglesby of Unidesk, who addressed the issue of optimizing storage in VDI so as to deliver the IOPS required for desktop workloads, a requirement that is often is in conflict with the goals of reducing the CAPEX investment of implementing VDI. Oglesby recommends the use of hybrid storage arrays to provide a combination of larger controller memory, Solid State disk for high IOPS, and lower cost array disks. Reilly points out that a ready-made solution exists to do exactly that: Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.
