VDI 2.0 : Sun announces Virtual Desktop Infrastructure readiness


Santa Clara, Calif.-based Sun Microsystems, Inc. today announced the launch of Sun Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Software 2.0, its end-to-end solution that helps organizations to easily and efficiently establish and manage virtual desktop sessions on any operating system, including Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris Operating System (http://www.sun.com/software/solaris) and even Windows Mobile. Sun VDI Software 2.0 is available for purchase immediately and a free trial of the software can be downloaded at: http://www.sun.com/software/vdi/get.jsp.

Sun VDI Software 2.0 is part of Sun's broader virtualization software portfolio, Sun xVM software, which includes Sun xVM Ops Center, the soon to be released Sun xVM Server and the newly acquired Sun xVM VirtualBox software. Sun VDI Software 2.0 is designed to deliver a secure, centralized desktop environment, enables IT managed data backup and security and allows users to access their full desktop environment from nearly any client device without installing software.

Sun VDI Software 2.0 builds on the world-class security and mobility benefits of the previous release and introduces the new Sun Virtual Desktop Connector, which provides seamless integration to third-party virtualization technologies within an organization's infrastructure. Sun VDI Software 2.0 includes support for virtual desktops based on the Solaris OS, Windows, Mac OS X or Linux and provides access from any supported client device – from traditional PCs to alternative devices such as Sun Ray ultra thin virtual display clients – over nearly any network connection.

In February, as part of a broader agreement with VMware Inc., Sun demonstrated and announced its support for Sun VDI Software 2.0 on VMware Infrastructure 3 software, which allows customers to use their VMware deployment to host Windows virtual machines and leverage Sun's nearly 10 years of experience in delivering full screen desktop sessions over the network.
