Microsoft Windows on a Sun Ray 2

September 6, 2009

A quick little demo of what we can do for customers who want to run Microsoft Windows programs on their Sun Ray. What’s fantastic about this is that you can have your cake and eat it too. That is, you can have the benefits of a Sun Ray at the user’s desk or at the store stations but still have full Windows functionality.

Some of the advantages of using Sun Rays over Windows PCs:

  • Low maintenance
  • Easily replace or add new stations – just plug them in!
  • No worries about viruses or anti-virus subscriptions
  • Uses only 4 watts of power vs. 80+ for a typical PC
  • Security: control user’s access to data & applications
  • Single point of maintenance: maintain everything at the server instead of each user’s desktop
  • Stateless: no moving parts to break like hard drives or fans
  • Backup can all be done easily at the server – no need to worry about what data a user stores at his or her desk
  • Hotdesking: see the other demonstration below
  • Silent & Cool: no noisy fans or heat producing power supplies

All this adds up to the perfect solution for businesses of all sizes. The acquisition cost is comparable (sometimes less) than low-end PC’s but the on-going savings add up quick! Total cost of ownership is much less than a group of PC’s.
