Deep Dive: Cláudio Rodrigues compares Microsoft UPD and FSLogix Profile/Office 365 Container

Posted by Gabe Knuth on Oct 30, 2018 1:48:34 PM

FSLogix created Profile Container to address the challenges of folder redirection and roaming profiles, while also supporting Office 365 and other applications that didn’t behave properly with any other profile storage solution. Though it may look similar to Microsoft’s UPD on the surface (both approach the problem using a virtual hard disk that contains the profile, which is attached to the OS at logon), the FSLogix implementation goes above and beyond UPD to provide an entirely seamless remote profile experience that supports any application, without roaming profiles, folder redirection, or a backend system. With our new Cloud Cache technology, those profile containers can be stored in multiple locations at the same time, even in the cloud.

Profile management – Part 3

Posted by Martin Therkelsen on Sep 6, 2017 1:52:02 PM

Hi all,

In this part, I will test the three different solutions I covered in the first two parts of the blog series. The tests will be performance tests, but I will also cover what the profiles contain of information. I will also show you the configuration I have used for each solution so you can do your own tests if you want to. Before I get into the details I want to thank FSLogix and LoginVSI for their help and support with these tests and ControlUp for their free tool called App Profiler.

Profile Management

Posted by Martin Therkelsen on Aug 8, 2017 10:35:55 AM

Hi,
In this part, I will dig into each of the products that we are going to test in this blog series. The three products are, Microsoft Roaming Profiles, Citrix Profile Management and FSLogix. These three products actually hit three different types of profiles, we have the roaming, hybrid and local profile. FSLogix is a local profile, but because of the smart way FSLogix works the actual files and folders in the profiles are save inside of a VHD/VHDX file on a network share.
Let's get into it :)
