Nice uptime for single server Oracle VDI setup!

A lot of people have seen my VDI demos over the course of the last couple of years. And I often refer to the gear running it. It's not major league territory, a humble (and ageing) Sun Ultra 27 with a decent Xeon 3500 series, quad-core/dual-thread, which received a slight non-official upgrade to 24GB RAM to better suit my demo needs.

Anyway,  just to share the marvels of what modern technology is capable of, this little workstation has managed to pull an uptime of a whole year running VDI 3.4 on Solaris 10u9:

vdidc# manageVM printhostinfo

Physical host information:

- Memory available: 3052 MByte
- Memory size: 24558 MByte
- Processor count: 8
- Number of VBOX headless machines running:       11
- Uptime and load info: 8:38pm up 366 day(s), 11 min(s), 17 users, load average: 0.38, 0.38, 0.38

NICE!

Oracle Desktop Virtualisation Information and Documentation Links

One of the most common requests people like me get is for "information" and "documentation" (and aren't they the same?) - so here goes a list of the most important and regularly referenced ones, kept up to date:

PRODUCT INFORMATION AND DOCUMENTATION LINKS

    The above all drill down into important pages, of which the below I refer a lot of people to very often:

    DOWNLOADS IN GENERAL (links above too)

    They are all here: edelivery.oracle.com, the "Oracle Software Delivery Cloud ". Just select "Oracle Desktop Virtualization Products" and your product of choice, VDI, SRS or SGD. The Oracle Virtual Desktop Client (OVDC) can also be downloaded from there, just pick a Sun Ray distro to download and you will be presented with the OVDC as a choice too. The OVDC for iPad is available through the Apple App Store.
