Special Report: Virtualization
At the end of July, Oracle announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Xsigo Systems, a leading provider of network virtualization technology. Xsigo's software-defined networking technology simplifies cloud infrastructure and operations by allowing customers to dynamically and flexibly connect any server to any network and storage, resulting in increased asset utilization and application performance while reducing cost. Here, learn more about Oracle and Xsigo, plus what you can learn about virtualization at Oracle OpenWorld and more.
Oracle Buys Xsigo
“The proliferation of virtualized servers in the last few years has made the virtualization of the supporting network connections essential," said John Fowler, Oracle Executive Vice President of Systems. "With Xsigo, customers can reduce the complexity and simplify management of their clouds by delivering compute, storage and network resources that can be dynamically reallocated on-demand.”
Oracle desktop virtualization offers a different approach to delivering enterprise desktops to end users. Don't run the desktop on the client machines, where it's insecure, where it's tough to manage, where basically you're tied to a device. Instead, why don't you use virtualization to run your desktop in a virtual machine in the data center? It's more secure, it’s easier to manage, and you can access it from more places and from more devices.
