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.
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."
FSLogix Apps 2.7 is now available.
