WilkyIT goes into detail on the topic of allowing concurrent access to the Office365 Container using VHD Difference disks to achieve this frequent requirement, especially in Citrix environments.
When it comes to Office 365 in virtual environments, enabling critical application functionality, such as, Outlook cached exchange mode (OST/PST), Outlook search, OneDrive for Business sync, and Skype for Business global address list (GAL), is just as important as ensuring a pristine and optimized end user experience. FSLogix Office 365 Containers encapsulate these vital aspects to enable a successful Office 365 deployment/implementation within the enterprise organization. No wonder Microsoft MVPs and MCSEs are making a lot of noise surrounding Office 365 Containers and how much value it brings to the table.

WilkyIT recently augmented his blog from last August to cover FSLogix Office 365 Containers at much greater depth, while addressing the problems, risks, and solutions for enabling Office 365 on shared desktops/VDI. As part of this augmented blog series, the discussion includes a configuration guide that provides a step-by-step approach for installation, configuration, and testing of FSLogix Office 365 Containers.
Microsoft MVP, Freek Berson, took to the blogsphere to discuss OneDrive for Business Sync and cache inside RDS & VDI environments. Through his aptly titled article, "Dude, where's my OneDrive for Business Sync in RDS? FSLogix to the rescue!" Freek discusses the available options of what's currently supported to achieve enterprise level functionality.
Microsoft MVP, Citrix Technology Professional, and VMware EUC Champion Aaron Parker, of Insentra, discusses VMware's recently released white paper detailing Best Practices for Delivering Microsoft Office 365 in VMware Horizon 7 with Published Applications.
In this interview, Thin Client Computing President/Principal Architect, Steve Greenberg, sits down with Dave Marshall of VMblog, to discuss his thoughts on the future of the desktop space and what sold him on FSLogix. They nostalgically reminisce about the evolution from thin client computing in the mid-90s to modern day cloud desktops.
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 for Business (the OneDrive part in Office 365). For this reason most admins decided to disable the OneDrive for Business 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."
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.
FSLogix Apps 2.7 is now available.
As many of you are well aware, a number of limitations can arise while trying to implement Office 365 across your organization. Poor application performance leading to grumpy users does not typically lead to cheerful workspaces.
