How to Roam your OneDrive data with FSLogix, based on a non-persistent Citrix XenApp desktop

Posted by Christiaan Brinkhoff on Apr 18, 2017 12:23:17 PM

I’ve written about the FSLogix Container solution in the past. About 6 months ago, I wrote an article about FSLogix named - Office365 on a non-persistent Citrix Desktop – where I describe how you can implement FSLogix on a Citrix XenApp (RDSH) non-persistent environment for making use of Office365 - Exchange Online / Cache Mode functionality. At that moment of writing, the OneDrive Container feature was still under development/investigation - but that changed last month – I’ve tested the today's latest FSLogix version 2.8 successfully, including the caching of all my OneDrive files!

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.

Office365 on a non-persistent Citrix Desktop? FSLogix does that for you!

Posted by Christiaan Brinkhoff on Oct 17, 2016 3:07:05 PM

One problem that caused me a little headache for some days where the corrupted OST files of a customer of mine that uses Office365 / Exchange Online on top of a non-persistent (MCS) XenApp Desktop environment. One of my earlier challenges were to level the old performance with the performance they used to have before with the on-premises Exchange 2010 mail server setup. As you probably know already, Office365 is cloud based, what makes the client performance depending on the internet connection instead on the LAN, and Outlook Cache Mode a required then recommended option to configure.
