Tools I’ve used in my Ignite session

Posted by Benny Tritsch on Oct 20, 2016 10:53:49 AM

A bit more than two weeks ago I presented a breakout session titled “Get an independent insider’s view of desktop virtualization and session remoting” at Microsoft Ignite in Atlanta. Here is the video of my session on Channel 9 for those who want to watch it. As part of my session I demonstrated some great tools and add-on products provided by community fellows. I actually felt like the anchor of a news show walking people through some real-world use cases. After my session, I received emails asking me for more details regarding the tools. Here we go…

Posted by Christiaan Brinkhoff on Oct 17, 2016 3:07:05 PM

One problem that caused me a little headache for some days where the corrupted OST files of a customer of mine that uses Office365 / Exchange Online on top of a non-persistent (MCS) XenApp Desktop environment. One of my earlier challenges were to level the old performance with the performance they used to have before with the on-premises Exchange 2010 mail server setup. As you probably know already, Office365 is cloud based, what makes the client performance depending on the internet connection instead on the LAN, and Outlook Cache Mode a required then recommended option to configure.

App-V Recipes on GitHub

Posted by Rory Monaghan on Oct 11, 2016 9:23:33 AM

Hi All,

If you work with App-V, you are almost certainly aware of the great list of community recipes created by Aaron Parker, if you are not, you have been missing out! In February of 2016, Aaron decided to close his account on Delicious due to them showing unsolicited ads, which in effect has ended the upkeep of this list. I reached out to Aaron and with his blessing, I decided to go through the list of recipes, sanitize them and move them to a new platform.

Observations from Hitachi Strategy Session day

Posted by Clive Longbottom on Oct 10, 2016 9:54:11 AM

Hitachi recently invited around 40 analysts and influencers to an event in Las Vegas to hear what it is up to.

Roaming Profiles - What works on the latest Windows Update?

Posted by Brandon Lee on Sep 27, 2016 12:49:49 PM

Concern around the latest Windows 10 Anniversary update 1607, has brought about numerous questions that James Rankin, the AppSense Bigot, seeks to answer in his blog series, "Everything you wanted to know about virtualizing, optimizing and managing Windows 10...but were afraid to ask."

In his recent edition, which focuses primarily on roaming, James states, "For the record, most Windows 10 settings roam fine, but the main one that we've all been struggling with is the Start Menu. And this is really annoying, because the Start Menu is the first thing that the user generally interacts with when they use a Windows 10 desktop, and possibly the most "in your face" part of the new OS features."
