More Storage Options for VDI 3.4

Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure 3.4 has been released. This time we focused on the storage area. Until now Solaris ZFS and Oracle OpenStorage had been the primary storage solutions for VDI. In fact it was the only option for VDI with the hypervisor VirtualBox. Now you can connect almost any storage solution in combination with VirtualBox.

I am going to update my VDI Overview presentation for 3.4.  But here is a sneak preview with the updates in the storage layer:

Sun ZFS (pool on Solaris) yes

But there is more. Read about multimedia and security enhancements in Sun Ray Software 5.3 and Oracle Virtual Desktop Client 3.1.

VDiPad

This is bizarre. At least it is not the originally intended use for an iPad. But it makes sense in some situations to be able to access your corporate desktop from anywhere.

The photos show the Oracle Virtual Desktop Client app connecting to Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, providing a Windows instance running on VirtualBox in the data center.
