Oracle VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) software is Desktop virtualization product that provides desktop virtualization to replace personal computers with virtual machines (VMs) on a server. Desktops are accessed via Sun Ray Client, Oracle VDC Client (basically a software version of the Sun Ray, also using the same ALP protocol as the Sun Ray, available for Windows, OSX, iOS, *nix), RDP client, or optionally through the web via Sun Secure Global Desktop (SGD).
The product features tight integration with LDAP and Active Directory for user authentication. When accessing a VM, the user is presented with an Oracle VDI login screen. Upon entering credentials, the connection broker determines the correct VM for the user based on customizable policies. Once the VM has been determined it will be made available (resuming when suspended, starting when shut down) and the user is then redirected to the client OS or, if VirtualBox is used as virtualization backend, the RDP server built into VirtualBox.
 Main features
- Integration with LDAP or Active Directory for user authentication
- Integration of Sun Ray Server Software for VDI access through Sun Ray thin clients. No additional SRSS license is needed.
- Integration of Sun Secure Global Desktop (SGD) for remote access through a web interface.
