6/22/2004 - In response to customer demand and in order to provide an environment where users can collaborate and share best practices regarding use of SunRay technology, Sun Microsystems, Inc. (Nasdaq: SUNW) announced the formation of the SunRay Users Group (SRUG). SRUG is being led by Jaimie Jamieson, program supervisor of technology at the Moosejaw Catholic School Board, along with Sun Microsystems while the Santa Clara County Office of Education is hosting the Website. The collaborative Website at www.sun-rays.org was created to facilitate SunRay technology collaboration in applied areas of technology and industry solutions.
Sun Ray ultra-thin clients provide users with an interoperable desktop computing solution that reduces the maintenance, upgrade, and operational costs associated with most "fat" PC client environments. The stateless nature of Sun Ray ultra-thin clients allows for complete session mobility, improves workflow, and helps ensure the protection of data.
"We're amazed at the immediate outpouring of interest in joining the SunRay Users Group – already hundreds have joined," said Jamie Jamieson, program supervisor of technology at the Moosejaw Catholic School Board. "Our schools have been using SunRay technology since 2000 and we're excited to share our industry experience and best practices with other IT administrators and educators."
"Sun together with its partners and industry leaders have a history of creating successful community environments," said Larry Nelson, global group manager, Primary and Secondary Education at Sun Microsystems. "From the Java User Group to the Sun Software User Group, Sun has had tremendous success in bringing together technology advocates in an interactive forum where they've been able to benefit from insightful collaborative opportunities. Formation of the SunRay User Group answers the call of users to provide an environment where they can share insights and experiences in an organized forum. There will be more to come as this group comes together."
With hundreds of members already joining SRUG, the collaborative environment has brought together several opportunities among its users. For more information on the SunRay Users Group visit www.sun-rays.org.
