  1. Anticipating Where Customers Will Be, Not Where They Are Today

    Citrix Santa Clara

    OK, summer is almost over, and being an avid Flyer’s fan, I start thinking about hockey and if the Flyers will ever be great again – you know, winning Stanley Cups. In hockey being great, as the iconic Wayne Gretzky once said, is playing where the puck is going to be, not where it is.  Being great in hockey is a lot like being a ...

  5. Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp: What is HDX? It’s not just ICA!

    HDX 3D Pro works with CAD and 3D vendors to ensure mutually engineered optimised architecture and interoperability

    “What’s the difference between HDX and ICA?”, “Is HDX 3D Pro different to HDX?”….. As a Product Manager these are questions I get asked a lot! We actually have a fantastic whitepaper, available here, covering what the HDX portfolio is. It has got a bit of marketing in there but fundamentally the technical descriptions of the technologies are very useful! I’ve re-published the text of the ...

    If you were to look at VMware’s printing strategy, you might be led to believe that printing is not important in a VDI environment. Ubiquitous as it may seem, printing is one of the most challenging and critical part of the virtual desktop strategy. VMware does not support virtual printing for all Horizon use-cases. Citrix, on the other hand, has been working on solving printing for ...

After getting past the initial setup and configuration, we had SmartCard working through the Netscaler Gateway and StoreFront. However, we were getting 3 PIN prompts while authenticating and trying to connect. The ...

  8. Using gPXE for a more robust provisioning services setup

    The most common way of bootstapping PVS target devices is by relying on DHCP + TFTP, and since the 10.1 release of the  NetScaler we actually have simplified TFTP loadbalancing. TFTP loadbalancing used to be a bit tricky as you can tell from reading this post, and I thought I'd share a diffferent way of bootstrapping the provisioned VMs that I actually believe can be even more ...
