Oracle Release New Sun Ray Client and VDI

Enterprise software maker Oracle has released an updated version of its Sun Ray virtualisation client and its Virtual Desktop platform.

The new Sun Ray 3 Plus Client released by Oracle has been designed to reduce the power consumption of a PC by creating a virtual desktop on a user's machine, hosted on a data center.

Oracle said that the client has managed to acquire the Energy Star 5.0 qualification and is capable of running larger screens than the previous versions.

The new Virtual Desktop Infrastructure 3.1.1 has been designed to enhance the performance of virtual systems.

Apart from providing a centralised managing platform for Linux and Solaris, the new VDI will also support Windows 7.

Wim Coekaerts, senior vice president for virtualisation at Oracle, said: “Oracle is committed to helping customers leverage the power of virtualisation through the most complete and integrated portfolio, spanning desktop, server, storage and middleware.”
