  2. Citrix, OpenStack and CloudStack

    cloudstack

    Citrix recently announced that it's now a Corporate Sponsor of the OpenStack Foundation.  Given the central role that Citrix has played in the Apache CloudStack project, some who are involved with CloudStack may find this odd, or even worrisome.  I thought it was worth addressing this directly. Citrix has been a leader in Cloud Computing technology for many years, and the pioneering role Citrix has played in ...

    OpenStack logo

    We’re pleased to announce that we’ve joined the OpenStack Foundation. While our announcement covers this news and includes support from many in our industry, I wanted to provide a little bit of additional color to better understand how Citrix is engaging with the community and the motivation behind working with the Foundation.

  5. How Well Do You Know Your End-Users?

    End User event in Santa Clara

    I can remember the first time I interacted with my “end-users.”   I was working on a shampoo brand as a marketing intern for a large cosmetics company in Manhattan. I brought one of our poorer-selling bottles with me to the bank (yes, we actually had to go to the bank at lunch time and talk to people, can you imagine?) and asked people in line ...

  8. The (Significant) Benefits Software-Defined Storage Brings to VDI

    Hello, everyone! If you’ve ever worked on a VDI project, chances are pretty good you encountered one or more issues pertaining to performance, scalability, availability, data management, data protection, and cost. And when you did, chances are just as good it was your storage that contributed to or even caused those problems. After all, traditional (hardware-based) storage systems, which are not “application aware,” are unable to differentiate ...

    xenserverthumbgreen

        Quite some time since has passed since I’ve shared XenServer tips with our Blog community. Oddly enough, I stumbled across a buried draft in my files. It was dated 30-JUN-2014 and titled, “A hat-tip”. This was intended to provide a solution to a client who requested that I provide a reason and resolution to an issue they had experienced. Because this tip ...
