  1. Autodesk designer reviews REVIT on Citrix XenApp – plus register for GTC 2015

    Day 1 of Synergy 2014 - Green Drafters Demo on the NVIDIA booth - 2D Sections

    At Citrix Synergy 2014, I saw one of the most fascinating demos of NVIDIA GPUs running Citrix XenApp to deliver Autodesk REVIT. We’ve blogged a lot about how XenApp is a really cost effective and user-satisfying way to deliver Autodesk applications on vSphere, XenServer or physical servers using NVIDIA or AMD GPUs. This demo wasn’t so much about the underlying cost of the technologies though but ...

  4. Citrix User Group – Norway – Community Cruise and Meeting Review

    Viking Treasure Hoard!

    Scandinavians on a boat have usually meant trouble to us English. Vikings have a proven history of getting on their boats, crossing the odd icy-cold sea, followed by burning a few villages or killing the occasional Anglo-Saxon king. So when I heard the Citrix User Group in Norway were holding one of their user group meetings on a cruise, see details here, I wasn’t really ...

  5. Citrix supports NVIDIA GRID™ vGPU™ for XenApp!

  8. Citrix Studio Templates – Help Needed – Out-of-the-box Configuration for XenDesktop and XenApp

    template1

    There was a very neat mechanism introduced into Citrix Studio a while ago called Studio templates. Recently, I got asked about the “High Definition User Experience” template. I didn’t actually know about it and once I investigated, I got very interested.   What are Templates? In Citrix Studio next to the “Policies” tab, the next tab is “Templates”. The idea is you can create, save and load templates ...

  9. Broadening 3D application display compatibility in XenDesktop – blacklisting, an interim workaround

    I was recently asked about a little-known workaround we sometimes use to overcome rare compatibility issues between our 3D driver and certain applications.
