1.1. About Oracle Virtual Desktop Client

Oracle Virtual Desktop Client is an application that enables you to access your virtual desktop from anywhere and from almost any device. It allows you to easily and securely access desktop applications and data that are hosted in your data center. Because Oracle Virtual Desktop Client installs on a variety of client operating systems, you can use your PC, laptop, or iPad as an alternative to using a Sun Ray Client to access your virtual desktop.

Oracle Virtual Desktop Client connects you to a Sun Ray Software or Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure server to access your virtual desktop.

The computer that you use to run Oracle Virtual Desktop Client and connect to the server is called the client computer.

This manual describes the version of Oracle Virtual Desktop Client that runs on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux platforms. Documentation for the iPad version of Oracle Virtual Desktop Client is available at: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/documentation/virtualdesktopclient-411777.html.
