-- Simplified deployment and easy scalability: With the new Oracle
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, administrators can seamlessly
expand up to enterprise-scale deployments by starting with a
single commodity server, containing all the necessary components
engineered to work together, including a virtualization platform,
local storage and session management. By leveraging a new local
storage high availability feature, administrators simply add
hardware to extend capacity as demand grows, wi
thout the need to
"rip and replace" the existing deployment.

feature of Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, which allows
administrators to separate user data and settings from virtual
desktop images, has been enhanced to support pre-populating user
data when new virtual desktops are created, improving login

drive" type reduces server load by storing just a single copy of
applications used by many users.
-- Administrative enhancements: Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
administrators can now schedule the time and date when new virtual
desktop templates are published, allowing for unattended updates
during off-peak hours.
-- Richer user experience: Dynamic virtual desktop resizing and
rotation improves usability of virtual desktops on iPad and
Android tablets. The new releases also provide enhanced multimedia
playback for Windows 7 desktop environments with up to 720p High
Definition (HD) video in Windows Media Player on Sun Ray 3 Series
-- Improved security: New IPsec option provides encryption levels up
to AES-256, securing communication between Sun Ray Clients and
Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure and Sun Ray Software
servers. Linux-based deployments now provide smart card
capabilities for Windows virtual desktops, including two factor
authentication, PIN login, and identity and signature services.
-- "Only Oracle offers a comprehensive solution to deliver and manage
virtual desktop environments, along with the enterprise applications
they access, from a single console," said Wim Coekaerts, senior vice
president, Linux and Virtualization Engineering, Oracle. "The latest
