Sun and Ashbourne Unveil Full-Function, Cloud-Based Desktop as a Service for K-12 Schools and Community Colleges

Sun and Ashbourne Technology Group are now offering a secure, cost-effective computing solution for educational institutions that can be delivered anytime, anywhere via the Internet -- providing a rich, virtual desktop experience for all leading Operating Systems, including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Solaris to nearly any client device, including Sun Ray thin clients and other platforms with Java(TM)-based browsers.

The Sun Ray device's zero-maintenance and 4-5 watt power draw makes it one of the greenest desktop solutions on the market today. Sun also offers the Sun Ray technology with built-in VPN security so that parents, teachers and administrators can feel secure about the privacy and security of students on the network. The Sun Desktop as a Service solution, part of Sun's education solutions portfolio, is a subscription-based service available for purchase immediately for as little as US $1.00 per day per user.

"This is a full-function solution with no compromises to what students, teachers and administrators are used to today. With this new offering, they can easily and quickly access a common and familiar desktop environment on thin clients via the Internet -- in the classroom, library, at home or virtually anywhere – without the management and maintenance costs and hassles of OS upgrades, security patches, bug fixes or storage backups," said Joe Hartley, vice president of Government, Education and Healthcare Sales, Sun Microsystems.
