Using App-V for Legacy TLS

Posted by Rory Monaghan on May 29, 2018 1:26:28 PM

This post is titled 'Using App-V for Legacy TLS' but could be applied for various different Internet Explorer settings. I picked TLS because I was speaking with a former colleague who was approached by his management about needing to disable legacy versions of TLS right away, he was concerned that various web apps required it and they didn't have any workaround for those to continue to function.

Office365 + FSLogix = Party Time

Posted by Brandon Lee on May 29, 2018 12:51:50 PM

If you haven't had a chance to experience Citrix Synergy in the flesh, all I can say is, add it to the bucket list and you won't be disappointed. Suffice it to say, this year's Citrix Synergy was a major highlight for FSLogix, taking home Best New Technology and Best of Show for Cloud Cache. For first time attendee, James Kindon, he "...expected the event to be awesome, but had no idea how amazing not just the conference is, but how priceless the chance to meet with the community, and the inner team around the products we work day to day in."

Citrix announced Office 365 support in UPM/WEM. How does that affect you?

Posted by Gabe Knuth on May 18, 2018 11:33:20 AM

Last week at Synergy, Citrix announced support for Office 365 cache data in their Profile Management and WEM products, and more than a few people showed up at our booth and asked what it meant for us. Since so many attendees had questions about it, we figured it was worth writing a blog post so that people who weren’t at Synergy know what’s up, too.

Why we use Microsoft App-V

Posted by Tim Mangan on May 10, 2018 12:01:24 PM

It seems strange that I’ve never written this article before.  I haven’t needed to.  But we need to be reminded now and then.

Those of us using App-V, which includes most of the largest, and best run, enterprises around the world, do so because it is the easiest way to customize, prepare, and deliver applications to internal users. That’s pretty much it.  Oh, there are a bunch of things we can talk about that go into that, but it really comes down to that statement.

Using FSLogix Profile Containers as a Workspace Repository

Posted by Brandon Lee on May 8, 2018 11:22:08 AM

Industry expert, Matthias Schlimm, recently shared his experience using FSLogix Profile Containers during a Nutanix VDI PoC, in the Expert Insights blog space at mycugc.org. During the PoC, Matthias deployed the VMs with MCS from XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR CU1 Test Environment, which worked very smoothly. However, the Customer had PVS running for their Production XenApp Environment, but PVS Version 7.13 does not support Nutanix's native hypervisor AHV. Suffice to say, there were some challenges that needed to be addressed.

Citrix Director: What is it Good For?

Posted by Rory Monaghan on May 8, 2018 9:51:34 AM

Recently at the Citrix Masters Retreat,  I attended a session oddly named Citrix Sucks.

A lot was discussed, it was a pretty great session. One point that was brought up was the fact that Citrix's monitoring product Director just isn't very good. Personally, I have to agree. It's not the best product out there for monitoring a Citrix environment. Director doesn't hold a candle to competing products such as those from Goliath TechnologiesEG InnovationsLiquidware StratusphereExtraHopControlUp and likely others! I will get into each of these at some point on this blog post. Some of these products are very different than others so it's definitely a worthy topic for further discussion.
