JOSTI 2009 Sun Ray Presentation
By Stephen Repetski on Jun 28, 2009
The Jefferson/Overseas Technology Institute (JOSTI)\* is an annual five-day technology training experience for overseas educators. JOSTI offers training in two strands:
• Instructional Integration for Teachers (K-12)
• Real Techies Only!
For the past two years we’ve had a presentation on the deployment of Sun Ray in Education – specifically, at TJ with ~1800 students and 200 faculty. Here’s the description that we put up for it:
Desktop Virtualization and Thin Clients
Presenters: Trey Repetski and William Yang, TJHSST Alumni
Thin Client solutions are a Systems Administrators delight: minimum desktop maintenance and quick distribution of application installs and upgrades. Sun provides their own solution using Sun Ray software and hardware. This session will demonstrate the use of the TJ Sun lab, offering an opportunity to compare the environment with Windows (and integration of), along with a peek at the Unix background and insight to how this solution can work in the school setting.
Our presentation is available for download here (available in PDF format), and will hopefully be posted on the JOSTI website soon enough.
