I am pleased to announce version 5 of the free AppV_Manage tool, and in particular the new run-time debugging capabilities. You can find the tool downloader at this link here.
Industry expert, BriForum presenter, and member of the App Virt Smackdown cohort, Rory Monaghan (Rorymon), just posted a review of FSLogix 2.0 on his blog here.
Apparently today was Hat Trick Thursday, with three great articles showing up in my newsfeed highlighting the simplicity, diversity, and powerful problem solving abilities of FSLogix Apps 2.0, as seen by industry experts, gurus and pundits.
The AppSense Bigot recently posted part 1 of his “FSLogix first look” series, Managing Legacy or Multiple Java Versions, the EASY Way!
About a week ago I returned back home form the Expert to Expert Virtualization Conference (E2EVC) in Hong Kong – and in about a week I will be speaking at E2EVC in Berlin. For those of you who don’t know E2EVC, it’s an independent community event initiated and organized by Alex Juschin (@E2EVC). It’s original name was PubForum and it first started in 2003 with just four terminal server geeks meeting in a pub and sharing deep technical insights of what was called server-based computing at the time.
I’m at BriForum in London this week, meeting with many of my community fellows. One of the topics we keep discussing is the lessons learned at Microsoft Ignite two weeks ago. What a show that was! 23,000 people attended Ignite and most of them wanted to hear about the upcoming products and see how this Microsoft 2.0 looks like. Combining multiple events, such as TechEd and MMS, seemed to be a good idea for many IT professionals, despite the fact that Microsoft decided to miss out Europe – Ignite is a US-only event. Microsoft must have been surprised by the number of registrations as logistics were far from being perfect. Sometimes transportation, catering and room capacity for popular sessions clearly showed some room for improvement for next year. But I cannot complain, together with co-speaker Ruben Spruijt I was invited as a featured speaker and the Ignite organizers gave us a great room for our session about virtual desktops. According to Microsoft, remoting into Windows workloads is an important aspect of their mobility strategy now. This means that RDS and VDI were presented from different angles and were even covered in sessions where you wouldn’t expect it.
It was an honor to be named as one of the Best of Citrix Synergy 2015 Award Winners, and the winner for the Application and Desktop Virtualization category.
With our announcement at Synergy this week we hope to have put the final nail in the coffin for traditional profile management approaches in VDI and RSDH.
