VDI as a Service

Hi,

There is an interesting blueprint from Sun introducing the Managed Desktop Factory.

Enjoy,
Dirk

Comments:

I have a 5,000 seat opportunity for a compbination of Sun Ray thin client and Sun Ray laptop. The client was burned by VMware pricing and bad performance results in their test pilot. They are a very large Microsoft shop, and have already implemented Oracle and Cognos software on Hyper-V. They want to use Microsoft only for all virtualization projects. Is there a way for Sun to make a VDI connector for Hyper-V and Microsoft Systems Center?

I have read the Managed Desktop Factory and it is perfect except that Sun Ray is explicitly written for VMware and Virtual Centre. I need to know if Sun is willing to write a VDI connector for Microsoft Hyper-V with Microsoft Systems Centre.

Emerich,

Hyper-V is becoming more important and that we recognize that. Our roadmap is reflecting this already.

When do you see Hyper-V support in the roadmap?
Need to give an answer to my client.
