Is Oracle’s Sun Ray the New Virtual Desktop Hotness?

More than ever, your organization is under a significant amount of pressure to reduce cost and maximize efficiency. Accordingly, you rely on virtualization technologies to reduce capital expenditures, increase utilization, lower (or at least control) costs, and make IT a more smooth-running business unit.

Now that you’ve done it at the server level, you need to think about the desktop. Utilizing the latest version of Oracle Sun Ray, you can turn the management and maintenance on literally thousands of think clients into a much more effective and efficient experience. You’ll reduce costs, enhance security, and provide an improved end-user experience all at the same time.

So, what exactly does Oracle’s Sun Ray Software do for your organization? There are several ways that this technology increases your virtualization efficiency:

•    It eliminates the need for maintenance, upgrade, and operational expenditures that are related to standard desktop settings. Because management, data, and applications are all centralized, you greatly reduce the overhead involved in keeping your desktops stable and updated.

•    Oracle’s Sun Ray Software integrates seamlessly with the rest of Oracle’s virtualization portfolio. This lets you virtualize your full environment, including software, hardware, applications, and more.

•    Access to virtual desktops of all sorts, from Windows to Linux to Solaris, utilizing clients that run the gamete from PC to Mac to Sun Ray thin clients.

•    The newest version, Oracle Sun Ray Software 5.2, provides some significant enhancements to the user experience and to administration.

Here are some of those new enhancements that make the latest version of Oracle’s virtual desktop software the hottest thing out there:

•    Installation and deployment have now been simplified with an integrated installer.

•    The multimedia experience for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 now provide Windows Media Player experience that’s as robust and seamless as a standard PC environment.

•    Audio is now available real-time, including USB headset support. In addition, the amount of network bandwidth required has dropped by as much as 90 percent.

There are plenty of other new features, too, such as support for Oracle Solaris IPMP as well as additional smart card support and VPN options.
