Another Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) / Sun Ray Review in TechTarget
By chhandomay on Jan 27, 2009
In a follow up to last month's virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) review, Rick Vanover of TechTarget further examined planning a VDI implementation.
Rick outlined the main components in a VDI solution and stated, "the Sun Ray series of devices are among the more refined products in the space." Further, he noted, "for administrators who prefer to use an ESX hypervisor for their VDI, the Sun Ray server software can fill this void."
Rick explains the VDI architecture and planning involved, also noting a Sun blog that walks through the setup.
Overall he is quite pleased with Sun's solution, concluding, "setting up a Sun Ray server software installation is not overwhelming. In fact, Sun makes it quite easy by working to simplify the process and break down the steps for administrators considering Sun Ray software."
