Oracle Desktop Virtualization is on a Roll!
By Chris Kawalek-Oracle on Jul 06, 2011
That's right, the Oracle Virtual Desktop Client is now available for the Apple iPad.
What does this mean exactly? Well, it means any virtual desktop managed by Sun Ray Software or Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure can be accessed directly from your iPad. Not only that, you can freely move that virtual desktop between any of our supported devices (this includes all Sun Ray Clients and the growing list of platforms for the Oracle Virtual Desktop Client). It includes some great features for security with VPN support, and gestures to make navigating a full desktop easier on a touch-based device.
The second thing that's being announced today is the latest version of our Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure product. This software contains everything you need to setup a VDI environment, including management tools, a high performance hypervisor to run the virtual machines, and access via Oracle Virtual Desktop Client compatible systems and Sun Ray Clients. The latest release includes role based administration, a streamlined installer, better performance, support for more platforms and virtual desktop environments and more. Have a read through the press release.
