New Release of Oracle’s Sun Ray Software Delivers Secure, Rich Virtual Desktop Experience

Oracle has announced Sun Ray Software 5.1, which includes enhancements to media, Adobe Flash, audio, USB support, and multi-display capabilities, enabling customers and partners to have a highly secure and rich virtual desktop experience through Oracle's Sun Ray Clients, PCs and laptops.

Oracle's Sun Ray Software helps reduce the maintenance, upgrade, and operational costs and complexity associated with traditional desktop environments and provides users access to their virtual desktop from nearly any location.

Sun Ray Software now provides enhanced support for Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems.

The new release takes advantage of the new Sun Ray 3 Series Clients to reduce server workloads and provide a highly secure virtual desktop solution, while continuing to support a variety of other client devices.

Sun Ray Software is part of Oracle's complete desktop-to-data center virtualization portfolio, allowing customers to efficiently and easily virtualize and manage their full software and hardware stack, from applications to disk. By centralizing management, data, and applications on a server-hosted environment with no local operating system, Oracle says the Sun Ray Software virtually eliminates desktop maintenance and client security vulnerabilities.

"The Sun Ray Software 5.1 release delivers on Oracle's commitment to rapidly advancing our desktop virtualization products," states Wim Coekaerts, Oracle's senior vice president, Linux and Virtualization Engineering. "We continue to actively invest significant resources in Sun Ray and Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure products and work with customers to make it easier for them to deploy and manage virtual infrastructures with the best remote multimedia options."
