dinCloud Introduces New Clutter-Free Virtual Desktop

Grazed from dinCloud

dinCloud, a cloud platform for hosted workspaces and cloud infrastructure, today introduced dinWorkspace, the company's new breed of hosted workspaces, which allows users to connect natively to a Microsoft Windows Desktop without the need for connection brokers or other third-party components. This eliminates the need for third party applications or "clutter" and reduces both cost and complexity. Furthermore, bug related and compatibility issues are additionally reduced, offering an improved and more efficient user experience (UX).

Rethinking the Virtual Desktop Experience

"For years, people have been lured by the attraction of the big software companies, overlooking the layers of complexity that comes with implementing traditional VDI in-house. VDI users were forced to go to a third party, who not only added their proprietary software, but other layers of technology just to connect to a virtual desktop," said Ali Din, general manager and CMO at dinCloud. "Our new hosted workspace removes these extra pieces by connecting natively to Microsoft, without third party components or third-party concocted protocols."

The security of the data and applications is one of the major concerns for enterprises. With many enterprises adopting virtualized computing infrastructure and hosting their data and applications over the cloud infrastructure, there is a need for security features to be incorporated as a part of the enterprise infrastructure.

The VDI solution providers are providing better security features as a part of the solutions, which is leading to higher adoption of these solutions by enterprises and end-users. The communication networks are being enabled with data encoding, which enables secure transmission of data from one point to another. Security features are being provided independent of the underlying hardware configuration, which is another positive factor leading to higher adoption...

Synchronizing The Cloud: The Rise Of HTML5 And WebDesktop Platforms

Grazed from CloudTweaks. Author: John Omwamba.

The new kid on the block is a rather interesting one known as personal cloud computing. It is a contradictory statement because as it allows one to cultivate individual freedom with one’s device, it also taps into a plethora of public resources in remote servers. In other words, while it helps to personalize individual pleasures, it uses multi-device networking as the stepping stone.

The WebDesktop is a classic example of this platform: it allows users to manage software functions online and offline without having to set up any programs. It also helps to synchronize apps in computers and stats in cell phones devoid of any brand restrictions because they are all open source. Need one say that it helps to run simultaneous gadgets on the desktop because unlimited space is on the web? That marks it public face. The personal face lies in the simple fact that it synchronizes all functions that an individual with an affinity for infotainment would require without buying expensive equipment. One can play live games, trade in futures, network and do virtually everything that personality can allow...

Cloud Computing on Virtual Desktops

Grazed from MidSize Insider. Author: Bert Markgraf.

The eventual goal of cloud computing is a virtual IT environment accessed through a universal virtual desktop. While VMware recently introduced a completely virtual data center, the more immediate IT configuration, especially for midsize businesses, is likely to continue to be a mixture of local storage, traditional company data centers, and cloud infrastructure.

Employees will be able to get access to their data from office PCs and mobile devices, but they will not have a uniform virtual desktop and universal access to all applications. The virtual desktop infrastructure still has some limitations...
