FSLogix Containers – Search Index Considerations and Troubleshooting

Posted by James Kindon on Jul 11, 2018 11:10:40 AM

Windows Search is a feature that has existed in the Windows OS since Windows Vista, although it did exist as freeware called Windows Desktop Search for XP and Server 2003. It replaced the Indexing Service that first arrived as part of the Windows NT4 Option Pack, which was deprecated in Windows 7 and finally removed in Windows 8.

Windows Search builds a full-text index of files on a device. The time required for the initial creation of this index depends on the amount and type of data to be indexed and can take up to several hours. In persistent environments, this does not present a problem, as the creation of the index is a one-time event. However, in non-persistent RDSH or VDI environments like XenApp and XenDesktop, this can present an issue.

Using FSLogix Profile Containers as a Workspace Repository

Posted by Brandon Lee on May 8, 2018 11:22:08 AM

Industry expert, Matthias Schlimm, recently shared his experience using FSLogix Profile Containers during a Nutanix VDI PoC, in the Expert Insights blog space at mycugc.org. During the PoC, Matthias deployed the VMs with MCS from XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR CU1 Test Environment, which worked very smoothly. However, the Customer had PVS running for their Production XenApp Environment, but PVS Version 7.13 does not support Nutanix's native hypervisor AHV. Suffice to say, there were some challenges that needed to be addressed.

Introducing Cloud Cache

Posted by Gabe Knuth on May 2, 2018 8:07:14 AM

One of the reasons I joined FSLogix was because of their roadmap, so I’m very excited to be here while we launch what I think is one of the most useful products I’ve ever seen: Cloud Cache. For FSLogix, Cloud Cache is the result of thousands of development hours building, from the ground up, a technology that satisfies our customers’ requests while at the same time adding unprecedented new features and immediate value for any company that’s using Windows desktops today.

Posted by Jim Moyle on Nov 6, 2017 11:30:05 AM

Hosting your data in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) can be a very inexpensive way to provide storage for your organisation. This solution is also not necessarily confined to the use case of having both desktops and profiles in AWS due to the caching mechanisms AWS provides.

Citrix UPM Profiles to FSLogix Profiles Conversion Powershell Script
