FSLogix Profile Containers with a peak of what's ahead

Posted by Brandon Lee on Jun 17, 2016 9:07:52 AM

'The FSLogix Profile Containers make profile management really simple. Rather than using redirection or God forbid roaming profiles, you can simply store the users profile content into a single VHD file that is stored on a file share. Performance is awesome, there’s no noticeable degradation and no extra infrastructure is required. It couldn’t be easier.'  -Rory Monaghan 

In Rory's blog post, he includes a nice demo video of FSLogix Profile Containers and alludes to some exciting possibilities still to come!

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.

FSLogix 2.0 - Simplicity Still Wins

Posted by Thomas Krampe on Aug 20, 2015 11:46:00 AM

FSLogix added a new feature in version 2.0 which dramatically simplifies the administration and the management of user profiles on Windows machines. Instead of configuring local or roaming profiles the old way and managing them through various more or less complex tools, FSLogix is moving the entire user profile to a virtual hard disk (VHD or VHDX) which will be saved on a network share. In the following blog post I try to show how to configure this feature.
