3i Infotech, a leading provider of IT solutions and advisory, and a member of Oracle Partner Network (OPN), today announced that its desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) product, NuRe Desk has achieved ‘Powered by Oracle Cloud Expertise’ status. NuRe Desk is now available in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace for customers to access. NuRe Desk provides virtually seamless integration of the applications to the users from any device, while deployed on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). The solution provides DaaS for employees by delivering desktops, CRM & other applications - on premise, outsourced or remote work providing a no compromise work speed even with low bandwidth. 3i Infotech’s NuRe Desk also offers deep security that integrates with OCI’s data isolation, data security, internal threat detection, and highly automated threat remediation.

Powered by Oracle Cloud, NuRe Desk offers OCI customers these additional benefits:

  • Optimize cost: With the ‘pay as you go’ model, organizations reduce their total cost of ownership by up to 40% while increasing the agility and productivity of employees.
  • BYOD or Work from Anywhere: Regardless of location, IT Managers can administer their entire fleet of devices. With NuRe Desk, users have the freedom to work from their own choice of device like tablets, PC or smart phones. As an MSP (Managed Service Provider), 3i Infotech provides a secured DaaS that can be connected with just a browser.
  • End-to-end managed service: NuRe Desk can bring all the functions under a single console for the end-to-end service. The solution reduces the complexity which comes with virtual desktop and helps ensure better performance. This frees the IT team for focused tasks instead of having to manage the VDI environment and the various aspects involved making it a tedious process.
  • Data Security Control and Customized security: NuRe Desk offers the solution to replace the thick Client based computing and thus reduces the time and efforts required for managing the OS and Windows vulnerabilities in end point devices. It replaces the traditional VPN method with zero-trust network access and helps prevent data from vulnerability. Based on the user requirement, access and security can be customized with features and policies, irrespective of the locations, devices used and end user.
  • NuRe Desk is a simple, smart and secure solution for any industry or enterprise. Building the NuRe Desk DaaS solution on OCI was easier than it would have been with other providers. Some of 3i Infotech’s customers run on-premises infrastructure, which requires stretching the capacity of in-house resources. By moving the virtual desktop solution to OCI, these customers gain operational efficiency and more robust security. Oracle Cloud Guard provides a layer of security that is always running on 3i Infotech’s behalf and helps provide more comprehensive security.

“Our partners are our key to success, and Oracle has been an integral part of this ecosystem for us. We identified a need among our customers to bring desktop virtualization as a SaaS offering and needed a trusted cloud technology infrastructure partner to deliver it seamlessly.

This further recognizes the company’s observability platform, enabling organizations to ensure the performance while optimizing use of resources and cost. According to a recent CNCF survey1, 68% of respondents have experienced increasing cost of running Kubernetes, with more than half of them overspending by 20%. To address the challenges of complexity and cost of managing applications in the cloud, OpsCruise’s observability platform was designed from the ground up for microservices and Kubernetes environments. The platform is very effective in right-sizing resources at a granular level. Using its patented machine-learning based approaches that proactively detects anomalies and isolates causes, which helps DevOps and SRE teams to cost-effectively manage application Service Level Objective (SLOs) by appropriately allocating resources on a continuous basis. Equally important, the platform takes advantage of open source and OpenTelemetry monitoring tools, across metrics, logs, flows, traces and changes, to get a granular view of both performance and resource usage down to pods and containers. “As enterprises become increasingly software-driven, observability enables agile microservices architectures, giving developers more visibility into and IT more control over operations, while business teams gain greater insights.
