A couple of months ago, I had the opportunity to visit a couple of the library systems here in California. WOW! ...

  3. Easy Button: XenServer Pre-Installed on Dell Servers

    Dell server

Also, even if you are setup with the infrastructure ...

  7. Schedule a XenApp & XenDesktop Health Check-up: Start During PoC


    IT managers often say “let us not fix tickets as they come in, let us resolve the issue before the users are aware of it.” Without the right tools, what ends up happening is that IT staff is always in “firefighting” mode, overwhelmed by user complaints and trying to decode the log files from a complex environment which appears as a “black box”. When large VDI deployments are being ...
