Session optimization is a common challenge, whether you’re managing a Citrix, VMware Horizon, RDS, or WVD environment (or an environment composed of all three). We’ve been working on a approach to attacking the problem, creating scripts and adding triggers to make the result more comprehensive and powerful. And we’ve done it!

How do you measure user experience (UX)? When I worked with end users I used various methods to measure the quality of their experience.  If the user was in close proximity, I would visit them and actually watch them work, otherwise I’d do some sort of screen share.  I found it amazing observing users work […]

Another day, another call had come in.  I knew all too well what this was going to be about.  Our Citrix users were getting an error message when trying to launch their applications.  We encountered this sporadically, but often enough that the process to fix this was well known. This fix was simple, but time […]

April 29, 2019
Datastores in any typical virtualized environment are critical components that hold virtual disks, snapshots, and other data that keeps your VMs alive.
