Sun's thin clients

Sun Microsystems announced on Wednesday new security and display abilities for its thin client family, launching its $249 Sun Ray 2 and $499 Sun Ray 2FS. Both devices use software that actually runs across the network on a server; an upgrade coming this quarter to the server software will permit the Sun Rays to connect to Windows servers as well as Solaris or Linux servers, Sun said.

The Sun Ray 2 is half the size of its predecessor, but it supports only 1600-by-1200-pixel resolution displays, compared with the 1920-by-1200 resolution for the first-generation Sun Rays. The 2FS supports dual 1920-by-1200 resolution monitors and comes with a fiber optic network port for security-sensitive customers, such as government agencies that require optical communications because they're harder to snoop on than conventional Ethernet.

Correction: Due to an editing error, this story included an incorrect video resolution for the Sun Ray 2 thin client. It supports 1600-by-1200-pixel resolution.
