XenApp Migration Survival Guide

Posted by Rory Monaghan on Aug 15, 2017 11:59:46 AM

Whilst more and more organizations have made the jump from XenApp 6.5 to 7.x, it seems many more are still hanging around on 6.5 or even earlier versions. While I don’t agree with doing that, I can understand it. With all of the work and revs that went into 6.5, it was a very stable and reliable product. It seems to me that most middle to large sized companies used XenApp and I would hazard a guess that most used 6.5 at one point or another. Defacto, many IT professionals have experience with XenApp 6.5, they like it and they are comfortable with it.

Citrix App Layering

Posted by Rory Monaghan on Jul 18, 2017 1:04:56 PM

Over the years, I have posted quite a lot of content about Unidesk, which you can read HERE. While I did try out Unidesk with 2.x, they really piqued my interest with the 3.x release which supported Hyper-V and Remote Desktop Services. You see, RDS is a real pain in the ass when trying to manage it at any sort of scale. The Server Manager’s built-in consoles for managing desktops and users in RDS, simply are not fit for purpose. Unidesk however, was an excellent compliment for RDS. You could quickly and easily filter your virtual desktops, edit\manage multiple at once and of course it also made image and application management super simple!

Benny Tritsch: Why I became an investor and team member of FSLogix

Posted by Benny Tritsch on Jul 5, 2017 8:15:31 AM

Here's my little story of becoming an FSLogix investor earlier this year. Many of you may know me as a subject matter expert in Windows desktop remoting and enterprise application delivery. The Frankfurt Rhine/Main area is my home base, with the largest German cloud datacenters almost in my backyard. I enjoy sharing my knowledge through books, blog articles and presentations at industry events. As a result, Microsoft, Citrix, VMware and NVIDIA have recognized me as a member of their respective technical community award programs. Since launching my first technology startup when I was a university student, I've always been watching the international startup ecosystem very carefully. After eight years as a full-time researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics, I've had the opportunity to be in leading positions at several international startups over the last 15 years, including my own. I've learned that equity investments, where the funders get a piece of the company, are a great way of directly participating in startups at an early stage. And this is exactly where FSLogix comes into the picture.
