Sun Rays are "Citrix Ready"

Meet the three newest members of the Citrix ReadyTM family of Thin Clients. 

While the Sun Ray has always been a capable client when paired with Citrix, it's now official.  This classification is for XenApp, but we will also be pursing the same classification for XenDesktop which has its own set of tests. 

If you are ever in a situation where you're deploying a certain Healthcare EMR application, and you are told by a vendor that Sun Rays are not supported because they are not "Citrix Ready", be sure to point that application vendor here.

The New Sun Ray Hardware Information Center...Pass It Along!

This might be old news for some of you, but Oracle has just released the new Sun Ray 3 Plus Client.  Beyond providing the normal Getting Started Guide that typically comes in the box, the product team wanted to provide a place to give you (our users) up-to-the-minute release notes, detailed technical specifications, and the environmental data for the new shiny Sun Ray. 

Since I was fresh off of using wikis.sun.com for the Sun Ray Software 5 release, I made the case for wikis.sun.com to be that place for sharing and the Sun Ray Hardware Information Center was born.

The Sun Ray Hardware Information Center isn't fancy (yet), but it does provide the juicy tidbits and important information for the new Sun Ray 3 Plus Client.  If there is anything missing or other information you'd like to see, either provide a comment on the wiki or on this blog.  As always, I'll see what I can do.

BTW, here's a cool unboxing video of the Sun Ray 3 Plus Client.
