Oracle Virtual Desktop Client App for iPad and Oracle VDI 3.3

A great news day for our virtualization products. We released 2 products, a new one : Oracle Virtual Desktop Client App for iPad and a significant update to an existing one : Oracle VDI 3.3.

The ipad app is just really cool - it gives you the same functionality on your ipad as you would get using a Sun Ray thin client or the software version (ovdc) on Windows, Linux or MacOS X - a full featured keyboard (including arrows, function keys, control, esc etc), audio, video etc. So now you can use your ipad to -securely- access your data from anywhere - whether it's a Sun Ray Server session or an Oracle VDI vm session. All you need is a Sun Ray Server or Oracle VDI server , point to it. Done.

The other thing to keep in mind : it allows you to access any kind of remote desktop, not just Windows - unlike our competitors in this space. You can get to hosted Solaris or Linux sessions (ubuntu, Oracle Linux..) or even BSD, alongside Windows. This, again, of course also works the same with the Sun Ray thin client and the OVDC client.

Oracle VDI 3.3 has a ton of new features as well. From scalability to management enhancements. Single installer to get the whole thing going. An included Sun Ray kiosk mode so that you can use Oracle VDI not just for remote VM sessions but also terminal server or sun ray server solaris/linux sessions etc. Very versatile. Another big new item on the list is the Linux version of Oracle VDI. Customers can now install on either Oracle Solaris or Oracle Linux - we support and continue to support both.

Comments:

Just upgraded iPad to iOS5 and OVDC started to play up. Large parts of the screen just go black when viewing desktop. I have tried the app running on an iPad 1.0, iOS 4.2.1 and it is working fine. Was the app tested with the iOS5 beta?

sorry there's a known bug that's fixed and we're waiting for apple to get it published on the istore. we actualy did see it during an early beta, then it disappeared in the last beta but unfortunately it showed up again when they released.
