xVm launch

We had a launch of the new products of xVM, including Sun VDI. Steve Wilson and Rich Green did a real good job in showing how VDI works and the benefits of it in the xVM webcast.  Remember the demo was driven in California, but it was running on my small demo server in Hamburg Germany.

And you can get this stuff now. Sold under the Sun VDI 2.0 license.

why cant I download VirtualBox for free, but not Suns VDI product?

What's the cheapest way to run Secure Global Desktop? I just need one license to access my home desktop from everywhere.

Shouldn't it be free without support, like almost all other software from Sun? Oh, and when will it be opensourced?

BTW: SGD runs great on OpenSolaris 2008.05

VBox is free, true but without support. There are enterprise licenses that include support and are not free. I don't have the pricing a hand.

Sun VDI products have never been free. There is enterprise value to it. The business model might be discussable, but enterprise product like MySQL have also a price.

Same comment on SGD. This is a product made for the enterprise. A price for a single license I don't have at hand. Go to www.sun.com/sunray and you find more information about it.
