  5. Delivering Lync 2013 voice and video from XenDesktop, XenApp and VDI-in-a-Box

    Since we introduced support for Microsoft's Lync® 2013 VDI Plug-in (headless media engine) in Citrix Receiver 4.0 last year, we've seen rapidly growing customer demand for this optimized solution. There are clear advantages to offloading real-time media processing from the XenDesktop, XenApp or VDI-in-a-Box server to the user device (see my blog post Delivering softphones and UC apps with HDX real-time technologies).

  6. New in VDI-in-a-Box 5.4: Improved SSL Certificate Wizard

    One of the defining characteristics of VDI-in-a-Box is the all-in-one management console.

  7. New in VDI-in-a-Box 5.4: Shared Storage on Hyper-V!

    A key differentiator for VDI-in-a-Box as a turnkey VDI solution is that it does not require shared storage.  However, if administrators wish to take advantage of the benefits of using shared storage, VDI-in-a-Box supports this on the vSphere and Hyper-V platforms. VDI-in-a-Box 5.2 introduced shared image datastore for the vSphere platform.  Utilizing a shared image datastore to hold the VDI-in-a-Box golden images allows all servers in ...

  10. New in VDI-in-a-Box 5.4: Session Shadowing with Microsoft Remote Assist!

    A problem many administrators face is supporting their end users. Trouble tickets come in from inexperienced users through e-mail or over the phone and administrators need to rely on the user to describe their problem.  If only the administrators had some way of seeing what their users see, that would greatly speed up the diagnosis and resolution of the problem.  The answer to this problem ...
