Oracle introduces Virtual Desktop Infrastructure 3.3

To reduce administration overhead, lower total cost of ownership and increase security

By CBR Staff Writer

Oracle has launched Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) 3.3, a part of Oracle’s complete desktop-to-datacenter virtualisation, to manage and access virtualised desktops hosted in the datacenter.

Oracle’s complete desktop-to-datacenter virtualisation portfolio enables customers to virtualise and manage full software and hardware stack, from applications to disk.

The company claims, through centralising the hosting and management of users’ desktops, VDI helps reduce administration overhead, lower total cost of ownership and increase security.

A streamlined installer in the new VDI 3.3 allows for installation of components from one download and user interface.

New asynchronous I/O model supports up to 100,000 users per VDI cluster with multiple clusters via a global catalog.

It features a strong resilience model with hardware configurable from small to large deployments.

Guest support includes the latest Oracle Solaris, Microsoft Windows and other Linux-based operating systems such as Ubuntu 11.04.
