Sun Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Software
Randy George reviewed Sun VDI 3.0, which he called
“new and improved,” citing “impressive performance” and
“seamless” authentication against Active Directory as top features.
Randy found that “Virtual Desktop access screamed with Sun's VDI 3 on Sun Fire servers connecting to Sun's VirtualBox virtualization engine.” He also complimented provisioning features and the ability to automatically clone new virtual desktops as well as compatibility with a variety of software platforms.
Randy was also impressed with the Sun Ray 270 thin clients he tested, praising both their aesthetic appeal and the smartcard reader, which can be used for two-factor authentication. Overall Randy concluded that “Sun VDI impresses.”
