    Sun VDI3

    Guys,

    just a post to let you know if you have missed it. There is another VDI player on the market.

    Sun have released VDI3 for Sun Ray and SGD.

    It can be configured to use VMWare or Sun's own Virtualbox to provide the VDI images

    The full product page can be found here

    It is seriously cool kit.

    Guest systems include:

    * Windows XP SP2 and higher
    * Windows Vista Enterprise
    * Windows 2000 (only on Sun xVM VirtualBox)
    * Ubuntu 8.10 (only on Sun xVM VirtualBox)
    * OpenSolaris 2008.11 (only on Sun xVM VirtualBox)

    It is also designed to use the new Open Storage Kit AKA Amber Road.

    Can it use Xen to provide VDI images?

    VMware or Solaris 10 running modified Virtualbox at the moment.

    The second option looks very very good. Will keep the costs down.

    Note though, we reckon the cost of VDI is around 60% more than TS if you do it properly.
