Sun's VDI 2.0 to manage VMware Desktops

VDI 2.0 features the new Sun Virtual Desktop Connector, which supports Windows XP and Vista, Mac OS, Linux and Sun's Solaris operating systems.

The software allows organizations to "provide their users with secure access to a centralized desktop environment that can be accessed from practically any location, at any time, via the corporate network," said Jim McHugh, vice president of Solaris marketing.

Works with VMWare

The software offers improved information security Relevant Products/Services, more effective control of access to critical data Relevant Products/Services, reduced operational costs and increased employee mobility, McHugh added.

VDI 2.0 is the result of a deal with VMWare, announced last month, to offer and support VMWare infrastructure Relevant Products/Services virtualization software on Sun hardware. Sun demonstrated VMI 2.0 in announcing that deal.

The software seems to build on years of Sun's work on thin clients, said Charles King, principal analyst for Pund-IT, in a telephone interview. Internally, Sun has for some years operated "remote office centers," outfitted with Sun's Sun Ray clients. Employees simply swipe an employee ID through a card reader "and your desktop comes up from a central data center," King said. "It sounds like what they've done here is partner with VMWare to run on the back end and incorporate that with" the desktop-serving application.

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…
