Sun VDI 3 - Patch 2 released
By MrDGrobler on Aug 13, 2009
Long time, no post. This doesn't mean that we are not around anymore;-) It's basically vacation period. However, during the last 2 months parts of my team have been working on a project that is called Sun VDI 3 - Patch 2. It sounds small, but it turned out to be a bigger chunk of work. It includes a number of enhancements:
- Performance improvements for desktop provisioning and user desktop access
That is a big step forward, as we have removed quite some slack in the code.
- Recycling of Unix desktops
This has been a missing feature for desktop life-cycle. Now all types of desktops can be controlled by recycling policies.
- Support for SuSE 11 desktops with the VirtualBox hypervisor.
- All-in-one configuration
Similar to the evaluation setup. We've added a configuration option that allows to configure everything on one host using a remote DB. This is a supported configuration for production use.
- Customization of the login screen.
The x86 version of the patch is: 141482-02
And the related Sparc version is 141481-02
You find also a new VirtualBox 2.0.10 installation set on the Sun VDI 3 download page. An update is generally recommended. You must update, if you want to benefit from the SuSE 11 support or the expanded recycling capabilities.
