Sun Ray Software available to public?

Just got a Sun Ray 3i and was planning on using a T3-1 to install the Sun Ray Software on it to host the client. But I just realized that when I actually try to download the software it just takes me to the oracle support login screen..and I don't pay for oracle support. I am already logged into my normal oracle account but it needs a support login. Is this not available to download for everyone unless you pay for support?

Have you asked Oracle?

I ended up finding the Sun Ray Server Software (SRSS) on the Oracle E-delivery cloud platform, although it only hosted older versions it seems. I downloaded version and it did install successfully on Solaris 11.3. But performance is pretty slow on the Sun Ray. For example being in the terminal in a session seems to scroll frame by frame almost. It is interesting though because it seems to run okay besides scrolling and all that. Going through the gnome menus for example are responsive. Using firefox through the sun ray is very slow as well. I was unable to update the Sun Ray Operating System (aka firmware) because the download was only available on Oracle's support portal and not the e-delivery cloud like the server software. So now I am using the original firmware (11.0) instead of the updated version, which could definitely cause some performance problems. But I guess there's nothing I can do without paying for a premier account which I won't do because im just an individual home user
