Oracle turns Sun Ray into a VMware View client

Posted by virtualization.info Staff   |   Friday, July 16th, 2010   |  

Oracle released yesterday version 5.0 of its Sun Ray Software, the solution introduced by Sun in 1999 to centrally control and power its Sun Ray thin clients.

This release introduces a couple of major new capabilities.

First of all, the client part, called Oracle Virtual Desktop Client (formerly Sun Desktop Access Client) can be installed on Mac OS X.
On top of that the product now ships with a connector for VMware View 4, allowing the Sun Ray Clients to be used as View thin clients.

The server component is available for Oracle Enterprise Linux 5, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.5 Update 3, Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 10 Service Pack 2 and Sun Solaris 10 5/09 for both SPARC and x86/x64 architectures.

The software update is available now for download and ships with Sun Ray 270, Sun Ray 2 and the new Sun Ray 3 Plus clients.
