VXL announce new micro Thin Client to Go

Providing on-demand access to VDI environments, VXL’s new CloudDesktop On the Go USB key repurposes legacy PCs into fully functioning, VXL Linux powered, thin clients.

Manchester, UK – VXL, a leader in both thin client hardware and endpoint management and digital signage software solutions, launches its new CloudDesktop On the Go, a flexible and cost-effective thin client on a USB key, that repurposes compatible PCs into fully operational Linux thin clients.

CloudDesktop On the Go allows businesses to extend the life of ageing PC hardware by using it to access server-hosted computing sessions or virtual desktop infrastructure. Users simply plug CloudDesktop On the Go into a PC and boot from it. The VXL Gio Linux firmware is instantly useable without overwriting the local OS and the converted PC can be managed as thin client.

Frank Noon, VP Worldwide Sales commented, “CloudDesktop On the Go, is perfect for businesses that want to provide remote and mobile workers with simple and secure access to their VDI environments, giving them freedom to operate while protecting networks and sensitive data.”

“And, because CloudDesktop On the Go is a no-nonsense out of the box solution, companies can quickly scale up deployments, while also lower their PC replacement costs,” he added.

CloudDesktop On the Go can be accessed from any USB-bootable PC, laptop, tablet or thin client that meets the minimum requirements of an x86, 64-bit processor and 2GB RAM. Available in an ultra-compact USB 3.0 form factor, with backward compatibility to USB 2.0, CloudDesktop On the Go also includes Citrix, VMware, RDS, Firefox and Google Chrome clients.

“Market feedback also shows there’s a massive opportunity for CloudDesktop On the Go in vertical BYOD markets such as financial services, logistics, education and call centres where users hot desk between different sites, offices or locations,” continued Noon.

CloudDesktop On the Go can also be managed, like all the other VXL OS-powered thin clients, via VXL’s complementary Fusion UDM Professional, device management software. A centralised and secure remote management console, Fusion UDM Professional provides complete control over their VXL thin client endpoints, saving time and resources, and reducing operating expenses.

CloudDesktop On the Go also provides a valid alternative for those organisations faced with the fast approaching dilemma of having to migrate to Microsoft Windows 10 as result of the discontinuation of security updates for Microsoft Windows 7 from January 14th, 2020.

By repurposing their legacy Microsoft Windows 7 PCs into virtualised VXL Linux OS endpoints courtesy of CloudDesktop On the Go, organisations would then be able to access Windows 10 IoT via their Data Centres or Cloud. This solution not only saves time and money, but also offers organisations improved security and management and delivers a great user experience courtesy of its fast boot and simple to use operating system.

With a list price of $77.00, VXL’s CloudDesktop On the Go is available now through its global channel partner network.

Redgate enables new ways of working in Database DevOps with latest version of SQL Change Automation

Cambridge UK, Tuesday 17 September 2019 – Redgate (https://www.red-gate.com/) today launched SQL Change Automation 4.0, extending its database change management automation tool to the free Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) development environment for the first time. SQL Change Management empowers developers to automate the DevOps database delivery process by building, testing, and deploying database changes checked into version control, for SQL Server, Azure SQL Database, and Azure SQL Database Managed Instances.

With the new SSMS extension, developers can now choose whether to work in Microsoft Visual Studio or SSMS, with team members able to use both development environments to share and collaborate seamlessly on the same projects. Alternatively, users can standardize on a single development environment, depending on their particular needs.

This new capability especially benefits heterogenous development teams where developers and database administrators want to use their development environment of choice, but still follow the same DevOps processes when it comes to database changes. For example, specialist database developers and DBAs prefer to work with SSMS even if they are collaborating with full stack developers who use Visual Studio. They now don’t need to learn to use new development environments, maximizing their effectiveness and making adoption easier while enabling efficient team working.

Thanks to the rise of Database DevOps, companies are increasingly adopting Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery of database changes. SQL Change Automation supports this, freeing teams from manual database change management tasks, like sorting out deployment scripts, speeding up deployments and enabling developers to focus on more value-added work instead.

As Robert Farrell, Product Manager, Redgate Software, comments: “Redgate is dedicated to delivering choice to users – letting teams work in the environments and tools that they are most familiar with, reducing learning curves and enabling greater collaboration. The latest version of SQL Change Automation supports this philosophy, extending its capabilities and ensuring that database code quality and automation is at the heart of DevOps processes, bringing stability and speed.”

Other features of SQL Change Automation v4 include static code analysis and new data compare options for PowerShell. Static code analysis identifies potential problems with migration scripts to be deployed and warns the user about them, before changes are made to Production, ensuring best practices are being followed.

SQL Change Automation allows finer control of options to support the automation of changes to static data within PowerShell. It also continues to integrate with popular version control systems and orchestration tools, and SQL Change Automation PowerShell cmdlets and graphical extensions enable users to implement Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery for database changes.

ShieldIO Developer Shield™ is Powered by Oracle Cloud and Now Available in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace

ShieldIO, a leading provider of Real-Time Homomorphic Encryption™ for today’s data-centric applications and a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), announced today that its Developer Shield™ solution has achieved Powered by Oracle Cloud status and is now available in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace, offering added value to Oracle Cloud customers.

Developer Shield™ is an innovative solution that allows developers and testers to access and use real data while sensitive data remains encrypted at rest, in-transit and in-use. ShieldIO has delivered its cyber resilience solution built on ShieldIO Secure Autonomous Drivers™ to enable secure testing, development and analysis of full or partial data sets within Oracle Database running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

ShieldIO ensures that data throughout its lifecycle of use, development and testing, is kept secure, yet easy to use. This removes one of the biggest barriers to cloud adoption: access to sensitive data used by developers and testers in the cloud.

The Oracle Cloud Marketplace is a one-stop shop for Oracle customers seeking trusted business applications and service providers offering unique business solutions, including those that extend Oracle Cloud Applications. Oracle Cloud is the industry’s broadest and most complete public cloud, delivering enterprise-grade services at every level of the cloud technology stack including software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

“Developers and testers using Oracle Database must have access to data for the application development process to work,” said Simon Bain, Founder and CTO at ShieldIO. “They can develop against real data or create false data that approximates real data. The surge of data compliance and regulation has moved real data out of reach of developers. False data can be expensive to create and maintain and can produce skewed results. ShieldIO has addressed this issue by building our solution on ShieldIO Secure Autonomous Drivers™, with an AES 256 encryption process without a KeyStore, eliminating back-door hack attacks.”

“ShieldIO’s participation in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace further extends our commitment to the Oracle community and enables customers to easily realize the benefits of Developer Shield™. We look forward to leveraging the power of the Oracle Cloud to help us achieve our business goals,” added Bain.

“Oracle Cloud ISV growth is accelerated by partners like ShieldIO who adopt Oracle Cloud and Oracle Database for their development, deployment and GTM,” said David Hicks, vice president, Worldwide ISV Cloud Business Development, Oracle. ShieldIO is designed to enable organizations to remove one of the biggest obstacles to cloud adoption – access to sensitive and regulated data used by developers and testers in the cloud.

“We are delighted that ShieldIO has been selected to deliver two Hands-on Lab sessions at Oracle Code One for attendees on the subject of ‘Testing on Oracle Autonomous Database with Homomorphic Encryption, Using NetBeans and Java’, on 9/17 and 9/19,” added Hicks.

Developer Shield™ enables organizations to minimize the risk of data loss, stay ahead of data changes, face minimal implementation and operational costs, and meet the increasing challenges of regulation driven by CCPA, NYCRR500 and GDPR.

Powered by Oracle Cloud status recognizes OPN member solutions that have been tested or verified to run on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. This achievement offers customers confidence that the partner’s application is supported by the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure SLA, enabling full access and control over their cloud infrastructure services as well as consistent performance.

The Oracle Cloud Marketplace offers an intuitive user interface to browse and search for available applications and services, as well as user ratings and reviews to help customers determine the best business solutions for their organization. With its new automated application installation features, customers can easily deploy provider business applications from a centralized cloud interface.

Visit ShieldIO at Oracle Open World in OCI-P5 Moscone South Level 1. Join us in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Experience on Monday, Sept 16 1:15-1:35 in the OCI Theater in Moscone South to hear our CTO speak about Cyber Resilience for Today’s Data in Oracle Cloud.

“Gresham understand the challenges faced by customers who need trusted integration capabilities to support their digital programmes, new product or regulatory initiatives, and business connectivity needs. Initiatives such as PSD2 are driving new payments and digital services and for organisations to be competitive they need to be able to move fast without creating a technical debt and maintenance burden. Clareti Integration Studio enables organisations to accelerate their integration projects, from the simplest to the most complex, and to be in control.”

Neil Vernon, Gresham CTO, commented:
“The ability to capture, manipulate and push data in multiple formats, in real-time when needed, can be a real headache for project leaders. Clareti provides access to reusable, trusted messaging that is fully maintained and readily available for fast, efficient and reliable data modelling and integration requirements. As an example, it was recently licensed by one of the world’s largest clearing houses for the transformation of FpML and FIXML messages.
