XenApp 7.5: Importance of Citrix Announcement

Last week, Citrix announced the release of XenApp 7.5, which will be available in March. Although the touted features focus on mobility and cloud integration, there’s a key underlying message within this announcement: “Long live virtualized applications and XenApp as a product!”   When Citrix started focusing on XenDesktop several years ago, it bullied the marketplace into thinking that a virtual desktop was the future of virtualization. Reality has proven that it is for some, but certainly not all. Let’s face... [Lire la suite]

How Virtualizing Your Desktops Can Help You Protect Sensitive Data

As Ted and Mason mentioned in their video post last week, today’s IT staff faces many challenges involving security, cost, risk, and governance. I’d like to address one particular challenge associated with those: how to manage data. Let’s consider a heavily regulated industry like health care. In a typical healthcare setting, if disaster strikes, hospitals risk losing extremely sensitive patient data, either virtual or physical. In addition to implementing disaster recovery processes and large backup tapes, IT techs... [Lire la suite]

Yet another reason to move your VDI to Windows 8

Yesterday I published a blog post entitled “Why you should move your VDI to Windows 8” comparing different versions of Windows during IDLE and Login process. One of my readers (John Hardman) suggested that I also should measure disk IO commands issued from multiple Windows OS during boot time. What I found in the additional test is another pretty compelling reason to move VDI environments from Windows 7 to Windows 8. In this test Windows 8 excelled when compared to Windows 7. During the boot process there were 54%... [Lire la suite]
