VDI In The Sky

On a recent trip (my first as an employee!) to Oracle HQ, I decided to test out Oracle VDI 3.2 from an airplane.  Sure, everyone (who can...if the latency will allow their protocol to work that is) has done this, but hey it's been my first trip since being part of the Big O.  One could say I don't travel like I used to. 

Unfortunately, I was a bit ill prepared to do this demo from a battery standpoint on my video camera, but still managed to get some screen caps with my phone.  On my next trip I'll bring my flip fully charged to get the full sequence.  But I'll tell you, from some 30K thousand feet, 300 ms (plus) latency, it did awesome.  While it won't surprise most to know I really believe in our technology, I did all of this on my own dime.  From the the gogo inflight internet to the first class upgrade.  Hey, us tall folk need space to work!

And here we are: 


This is the Virtual Desktop Client in windowed mode. It's hard to make out the latency, but it's over 300:

Awesome post! I tell our new clients that with the VDI you can access your corporate desktop anywhere on or off the planet, but how you get to the ISS is not something we can help you with. Very cool to see this and also to be able to show some of our clients this post.

Yes, Sun Ray Technology works. Tested it out on a VSAT network - 2 hops to the end client, 400+ msec latency.
Gnome Desktop on S10 is fairly decent.
