Durable and circular for more a sustainable mobile device strategy

Posted by Rob Bamforth on Feb 23, 2017 10:15:22 AM

Consumerisation of mobile technology has had many benefits. It has driven down the prices of devices, improved the user experience to the benefit of non-technical users. Plus, awareness and crucially acceptance, of mobile devices, has soared. All of this might seem good for the business, but there is a significant drawback. Consumer attitudes to technology can lead to a throwaway culture, with the obvious impact on wastage. This is not sustainable.

Load Balancing For Security?

Posted by Clive Longbottom on Feb 20, 2017 4:30:22 PM

Load Balancing (LB), is now popping up on the corporate security agenda! LB is no longer just about managing traffic flows across enterprise routers and servers. In the age of the cloud and software defined networking (SDN), the LB off-loading function has serious possibilities for deflecting DDOS attacks by shifting attack traffic from the corporate server to a public cloud provider. Next generation software load balancers with advanced dashboard capabilities can also provide deep analytics down to the individual application. This is exemplified in the next-generation SDN load balancing just announced by AVI Networks.

How to Roam OneDrive using FSLogix Office 365 Container

Posted by Brandon Lee on Feb 14, 2017 4:08:22 PM

Rene Bigler takes a look at how FSLogix Office 365 Containers are able to bridge the gap to allow OneDrive users the ability to roam their data in non-persistent VDI deployments. Rene asserts that, "until now there was no solution to persist synced data from consumer OneDrive or OneDrive for Business (the OneDrive part in Office 365). For this reason most admins decided to disable the OneDrive clients on non-persistent VDI. End users only could work with the online data accessed through their browser or Office Apps connected to the online OneDrive repository."

Resolving Cached Exchange Mode Problems in Stateless Virtual Workspace Sessions

Posted by Brandon Lee on Feb 14, 2017 1:19:17 PM

Industry expert Arno Meijroos, recently took the opportunity to attend a presentation where FSLogix addressed the challenges surrounding Cached Exchange Mode (CEM) in Outlook and offered up a unique solution in our Office 365 Container for Citrix product. Issues surrounding Cached Exchange Mode in Outlook have always been present for virtual environments. With the introduction and hyper adoption of Microsoft's Office 365, these issues are bubbling to the surface at an alarming rate. While there are a few 'workarounds' in the wild, their success is typically shaky at best and often times are not suitable for achieving an acceptable user experience.

Opinion: The Changing Landscape of Enterprise Application Management

Posted by Rory Monaghan on Feb 7, 2017 9:54:46 AM

I'm usually not one for posting blogs on [rorymon.com] in reaction to public announcements BUT I’ll make an exception for a couple that occurred in the first two weeks of this year. First, on the 2nd of January, Symantec put out a release to state that their Workspace Virtualization product is now End Of Life. Second is the announcement out of Citrix Summit that Citrix acquired Unidesk. These announcements warrant a post in my opinion because to me it highlights a major shift in the application virtualization and application delivery space.
