    Posted by David Bieneman June 25, 2014

    'After looking at various options, the customer decided to test three solutions – Virident PCIe flash, Atlantis ILIO, and Liquidware Labs Flex-IO. The last two products create RAM based datastores within vSphere to be used as local storage.'

    Yesterday Ericom released Ericom Connect v7 , the latest version of their VDI & RDSH desktop and app virtualization solution (formerly known as AccessNow). Connect is a complete rewrite which was two years in the making. It focuses on enterprise scalability (supporting 100k concurrent users), ease of use (install everything in 19 minutes), and reporting based on actual useful business intelligence (thanks to their new data architecture I’ll get to in a bit). From a technical...

    In the last few weeks we’ve talked frequently about app refactoring and modernization (podcast | article | video). This is the idea that you can take an application intended for use with a large screen, keyboard, and mouse, and—using one technique or another—convert it into a mobile app. The benefits of refactoring and modernization are obvious for mobile devices, since the difficulties of using remote desktops and old-style web apps on smartphones and tablets have been known...

    Here’s a topic that I haven’t thought about in a few years: What do you do for desktop search (or “Windows Search,” as it’s now called) in VDI and RDSH environments? Windows Search is a big part of the total desktop experience in today’s world, allowing unified full-text search across Outlook contents and files on the desktop. Many (or most?) end users rely on Windows Search as a core part of their workflow. (Do you? For me desktop search is how I do...

    After hearing about VDI-in-a-Box and its impending demise, I started thinking about what could be next for Citrix. Citrix is in the middle of a restructuring that, among other things, resulted in the layoff of 700 employees last month. These employees ranged from contractors to product managers. The information about VDI-in-a-Box, in fact, was surrounded by conversation about these layoffs. When thinking about the effect of this restructuring on Citrix’s product line, the product that...

    On Monday I previewed the 2015 NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC) calling it the biggest VDI conference of the year. Well it has more than lived up to that billing with some of the most eye-opening sessions on desktop virtualization that I have seen for years. Not only were there more VDI sessions than there…

    It’s hard to believe, but this week’s NVIDIA showcase, the GPU Technology Conference (GTU), might be the biggest VDI conference of the year. This year, there are forty-nine sessions covering GPU virtualization for desktop workloads. Yes, that’s right: VDI is as big at GTC as it was at both Citrix Synergy and VMworld last year. So,…

    Workspot Offers Remote Desktops Without Virtual Desktops
    CMSWire
    But while we're in a questioning mood, perhaps the way we run virtual desktops in the workplace deserves some fresh scrutiny. Specifically, if the real purpose of client-side devices, including the mobile kind, is to give us access to our services ...
