Desktop Management - IT Challenges
Economics and Ecology Reduce Complexity and Improve Efficiency Energy Costs Are Draining the Bottom Line Sprawling Devices Hard to Manage, Support and Service Business Continuity and Resilience Disaster Recovery Planning is Non-Negotiable Downtime is Not an Option Support Mobile Users, Relocations and Distributed Facilities Security and Compliance are Paramount
Slide 4

Business Agility Ability to Deploy New Services is Critical to Remain Competitive

Optimize Allocation of IT Resources

What Is Desktop Virtualization?
It's anytime you separate the desktop “image” from the desktop “device”  It is a method to improve management and resource utilization through a centralized infrastructure. It can be:  Server Based Computing – Windows Terminal Services, Citrix, Unix, Linux  Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (Hosted Virtual Machines)  Streamed Images to traditional PCs

The Sun Ray Solution
A deeper look
• A secure, cost effective way to deliver Windows, Solaris, and Linux Desktops from a stateless Thin Client

The Sun Ray Solution
Supported Platforms
• Operating Systems > Solaris 10 5/08 or Higher > SPARC and X86 > Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Server 5 > SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 • Bare metal, LDOM's, VM's > A full instance of a supported OS required

Sun Ray Features
Appliance Link Protocol
• UDP based display protocol between the Sun Ray Desktop Unit (DTU) and the Sun Ray Server Software. > DNS, VoIP, Video, and more also use UDP • Protocol has it's own mechanisms for detecting screen damage, out of order packets, etc.  DTU interprets ALP rendering commands into a local frame buffer which drives the raster refresh to the display • Screen updates as they occur in response to application activity

Sun Ray Client

Sun Ray Features

• No userland applications execute on the Sun Ray
> You never will load application on a Sun Ray

• Only transient, cached state (such as frame buffer content) is permitted in Sun Ray devices • The Sun Ray Servers maintain the true state at all times • Users are isolated from desktop failures and may move freely between terminals • Zeroed out on power reset
> Except for data held in GUI Firmware > Letters of Volatility available for customers

Sun Ray Features
No OS (?)

• What OS does your printer have? • Designed with security in mind
> Affords for an extremely small instruction set

• Commands are never executed by the user, only on behalf of the user • Extremely small RTOS normally called firmware
> < 700K (P8 models) Firmware includes > VPN Client (Cisco, Juniper/Netscreen) > Video Codecs (H.264 Baseline, VC1) > Emergency TFTP loader (so you don't brick your DTU) > Boot sector which performs POST and DSA signature checks > Desktop functionality (HID, Ethernet, ALP Engine)
