Ulteo unveils Virtual Linux Desktop for Windows

Their Announcement:

We're pleased to announce a new Ulteo product called "Ulteo Virtual Desktop" (Beta) which allows you to use Linux applications on the Windows(TM) operating system.

Ulteo Virtual Desktop is a full Ulteo system that runs seamlessly on Windows and offers a large choice of Linux applications, including the Firefox web browser, Thunderbird email client, OpenOffice.org office suite, multi-IM software such as Kopete and many others.

It also offers all Ulteo features that are already available with the Ulteo Application System. This includes automatic system and application updates from the Internet and document synchronization accross all your user's Ulteo systems.

It's been designed for individuals and corporate users who want to have Linux and Windows applications together on the same desktop without the hassles of dual booting or virtualization.

Once installed, the Ulteo Virtual Desktop offers a special menu that can be used to launch a choice of well known open source applications.

Ulteo Virtual Desktop uses special technology built on the top of coLinux. It offers performance close to a native installation on the hardware because it uses no virtualization software.

Applications can naturally access the user's documents in "My Documents". Sound and printing are also supported on the fly.

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them.
