Deep Dive: Cláudio Rodrigues compares Microsoft UPD and FSLogix Profile/Office 365 Container

Posted by Gabe Knuth on Oct 30, 2018 1:48:34 PM

FSLogix created Profile Container to address the challenges of folder redirection and roaming profiles, while also supporting Office 365 and other applications that didn’t behave properly with any other profile storage solution. Though it may look similar to Microsoft’s UPD on the surface (both approach the problem using a virtual hard disk that contains the profile, which is attached to the OS at logon), the FSLogix implementation goes above and beyond UPD to provide an entirely seamless remote profile experience that supports any application, without roaming profiles, folder redirection, or a backend system. With our new Cloud Cache technology, those profile containers can be stored in multiple locations at the same time, even in the cloud.

Roaming Profiles - What works on the latest Windows Update?

Posted by Brandon Lee on Sep 27, 2016 12:49:49 PM

Concern around the latest Windows 10 Anniversary update 1607, has brought about numerous questions that James Rankin, the AppSense Bigot, seeks to answer in his blog series, "Everything you wanted to know about virtualizing, optimizing and managing Windows 10...but were afraid to ask."

In his recent edition, which focuses primarily on roaming, James states, "For the record, most Windows 10 settings roam fine, but the main one that we've all been struggling with is the Start Menu. And this is really annoying, because the Start Menu is the first thing that the user generally interacts with when they use a Windows 10 desktop, and possibly the most "in your face" part of the new OS features."

PQR UEM Comparison White Paper Excerpt

Posted by Brandon Lee on Jun 15, 2016 11:45:02 AM

The PQR team released their latest User Environment Management (UEM) comparison white paper v16.03, formerly known as the UEM Smackdown.

"...I got questions from people not familiar with the smackdown what it is, the name is not something native English people would use. In English a comparison white paper with a winner is a bake-off. This white paper doesn’t bring out a winner so a bake-off was the wrong word as well. The white paper compares User Environment Management solutions to each other and therefore it is a comparisons white paper." -Rob Beekmans

Below is an excerpt from that white paper, courtesy of Rob Beekman and the PQR team. Updated May 25 2016.

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.
