Oracle has introduced new Sun Ray Software 5.1, which provides users secure access to virtual desktop from any location.
The new offering is part of Oracle's desktop-to-data centre virtualisation portfolio, that allows customers to virtualise and manage their full software and hardware stack, from applications to disk.
The company said that the Sun Ray Software 5.1 includes enhancements to media, Adobe Flash, audio, USB support, and multi-display capabilities, that enable customers and partners to access secure and rich virtual desktop experience through its Sun Ray Clients, PCs and laptops.
In addition, it provides support for Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems, and leverages Sun Ray 3 Series Clients to reduce server workloads and provide a secure virtual desktop offering.
The Sun Ray Software provides support for operating environments including Microsoft Windows, Oracle Linux and Solaris desktops, and interoperability with other virtualisation platforms and brokers.
The new Sun Ray Software 5.1 includes media acceleration; USB redirection; audio input support for Windows; and network security.
Oracle Linux and virtualisation engineering senior vice president Wim Coekaerts said the company continues to enhance its desktop virtualisation portfolio and deliver new and improved capabilities that provide customers a highly secure, low cost, and easy-to-use remote desktop experience. (CBR)
