Sun Microsystems has outfitted the Oman-based Middle East College of Information Technology (MECIT) with a complete Windows-based desktop computing environment through its Sun Ray ultra-thin client based solution.

The current deployment covers 250 seats across MECIT's campus and this number is expected to rise as the college expands.

MECIT is among the first institutions dedicated to technology in the Sultanate of Oman.

The ease of deployment of a Sun Ray based solution, coupled with the ability to have one administrator for many hundreds of desktops is expected to help MECIT ensure that students continue to access the Windows applications they need, without incurring high expenditure in terms of desktop management.

Security is very important as students use Sun Rays to take tests and write reports etc. Sun Rays are extensively used in environments where security is paramount.
