MENLO PARK, Calif. – February 19, 2008 – Pano Logic™ today announced a new software release for its revolutionary desktop virtualization solution. Pano Logic leverages existing server virtualization technologies to create a new approach to desktop computing that dramatically lowers total cost of ownership while increasing security, management and mobility. The new software release, Pano Virtual Desktop Solution 1.5, is optimized for LAN deployments, supports VMware ESX Server 3.5 and VMware VirtualCenter 2.5, enables new usage models and provides more efficient resource management capabilities.

“The desktop virtualization market is ready for innovation and new technology, and Pano Logic’s approach to centralizing all software and management in the data center is the first step in making desktop virtualization easier to manage and more attainable,” said Michael Fodor, VP of Product Management at Pano Logic. “The new release’s emphasis on LAN optimization and usage models is important, and will prove incredibly useful as more enterprises begin to identify and differentiate the needs for desktop virtualization in their LAN environments from their WAN environments.”

Launched in August 2007, Pano Logic reinvents desktop computing by enabling a totally new approach to the traditional PC-centric desktop architecture. The Pano Virtual Desktop Solution is designed from the ground up to extend hypervisor-based server virtualization infrastructure from the datacenter to the desktop. The Pano solution’s ability to uniquely leverage existing virtualization hypervisor technology provides both the lowest cost and easiest to install implementation of virtualized clients in the market.

New features include:

  • Support for the latest VMware releases – Adds support for the latest versions of VMware Infrastructure 3 including ESX Server 3.5 and VirtualCenter 2.5.
  • Kiosk mode usage model – Enables Pano devices to be deployed in public or shared locations for any user. Kiosk mode allows users to have easy access to limited-purpose, highly secure virtual desktops, whether deployed in conference rooms, lobbies or shared work areas.
  • Device- and location-based usage model – Provides access to designated desktop virtual machines based on the particular Pano device being used. Device restricted mapping allows users to be connected to desktop virtual machines based on the Pano device and its location within the network. For industries such as healthcare that must comply with data privacy policies based on physical and logical rules, this usage model provides the advantages of desktop virtualization while still enabling location based policies.
  • Resource optimizationConserves CPU and memory resources by shutting down idle desktop virtual machines (DVMs) when not needed.
  • Expanded USB peripheral support – Adds certified support for more USB peripherals, including printers, scanners and authentication devices such as fingerprint readers and proximity cards.

“We focus on providing best-of-breed virtual infrastructure solutions to our customers, and view Pano Logic’s approach to desktop virtualization as an incredibly revolutionary way for end-users to lower TCO and obtain a number of benefits,” said Jeffrey Slapp, president and CEO of Fairway Consulting Group, Inc., a virtual infrastructure solutions provider. “Pano Logic is quick and easy to deploy, enabling us to be much more profitable at desktop management, and the configurable Pano Button will allow us to offer additional services around the core Pano solution.”

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…

A Collection of Threnodies : Part 1

Whale Fall

Dress me up in my new threads
clasp my greasy palms
grease my hair
I'm ready for the fall

Watch at all the decadence
watching the avalanche
I'm slipping down
losing my buoyancy

What's become of us
where have we come
this far, this close
close to the doors

I hear them, sublimal chants
I'm on the run
I race through the human sea
I am the king!

I'm the slave
to my own undoings
I'm the jester in my courtyard
We jest as we run

We're strolling on that thin rope
we grope as we rope
we're true heros
we're the survivors

we're the scavengers
we're the friends
we're the lovers
we're the unbred

Soon awaiting the fall
we're lurking on us
we're osedaxing us
we're soon going to be done
we'll soon be arrested

*osedax(bone devourer, newly discovered marine genus) feeds on a fallen(sunken) whale carcass(which is also called a whale fall). Read more here
