Hello everyone,

Citrix® XenDesktop 5.0® has certainly become the “talk of the town” recently. And why not, it introduces a ton of new features and enhancements designed to simplify VDI deployments and allow organizations to realize the benefits of virtual desktops on a much larger scale than ever before! And just like we’ve done over and over again in the past, Sanbolic® is helping Citrix customers get the most out of XenDesktop 5.0 through our industry-leading unified storage platform “Melio USP™”!

While there are lots of ways Sanbolic is enhancing the latest version of XenDesktop, all of which I will be covering over the next few weeks, I thought I’d start with a fairly hot topic that I’ve been hearing about during conversations with VARs, partners and customers, and reading about in various blogs, such as this one: http://virtualfeller.com/2011/01/17/planning-the-xendesktop-5-database/, and that topic is “How to enable SQL database HA for XenDesktop 5.0.”

To learn more about how Sanbolic addresses this critical component of XenDesktop, please visit http://blog.sanbolic.com/?p=1357.

Until next time,

Andy
