It’s been one year since FSLogix released FSLogix™ Profile Containers and won Best of Citrix Synergy 2015 for Desktop and Application Virtualization. We’ve had an incredible number of enterprises adopt the solution, often after piloting for just a few weeks. Many of these customers have such a firm belief in the future of virtual desktops that they had learned to live with super long logon times, or very substandard performance in mission critical applications like email. After a year of strong market adoption, we’ve demonstrated that our solution fills this void and fixes problems that have only gotten worse over the last decade.
