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!

FSLogix Apps 2.8 - Roam XenApp Email Search and OneDrive

Posted by Brandon Lee on Mar 28, 2017 11:15:53 AM

With the official release of FSLogix Apps 2.8, FSLogix Office 365 Container for Citrix can now roam all XenApp email search, including gmail, outlook, and other email clients. Note that this is not limited to just XenApp, but will work on multi user mode environments (MUM) as well, such as standard RDS. The entire OneDrive App can now be roamed in an ODFC container. The key takeaway here is that the entire OneDrive App can be roamed without any external profile management requirements. Meaning, an adminstrator no longer has to struggle to figure out how to roam user info and can just hit the big easy button to roam OneDrive because FSLogix can seamlessly roam both the app and user data!

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."

Are Some XenApp Best Practices Still True?

Posted by Brandon Lee on Jun 16, 2016 9:55:11 AM

A headline for a blogspot, on Citrix blogs about XenApp best practices reads, "XenApp Best Practices #1: For the best user experience, application and backend data must reside together on a fast, low latency network." 

How do we achieve this best practice when all of our apps and backend data are potentially distributed all over the globe?

Marius Sandbu, Citrix CTA, Azure MVP, vExpert suggests a compromise to achieve the best user experience.

Why?

"Because that should be our end goalDeliver the best user experience." -Marius Sandbu

Introducing FSLogix™ Office 365 Container for Citrix

Posted by Kevin Goodman on May 23, 2016 2:06:21 PM

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.
