Everything in their system is a device, your user account, a software agent that we demonstrated on the Synergy 2015 stage day 2 keynote, each ...

    Mobile In Airport

    Mobile devices and apps are how work gets done these days. Employees aren’t tied to their desks, work doesn’t always mean sitting down from 9-5 and meetings can take place anywhere from a coffee shop to the sidelines of a soccer game. According to Forrester, mobile device (smartphone or tablet) adoption in the U.S. has grown24% year over year in 2015. Another report found that only ...

  3. Bringing Linux and Windows Together


    If you were at Citrix Synergy, you heard about XenApp/XenDesktop adding support for Linux virtual desktops. As my hero Homer Simpson says, "I'm not impressed easily … WOW a blue car!" And that is what we have, a new car color. We had red cars (Windows applications), green cars (Windows desktops), and now blue cars (Linux desktops). From my perspective, these are simply different applications we ...

  7. Virtualizing the Traditional University

    Animal House (1978)

    I don’t want to sound like an alarmist, but there is a growing trend on University campuses around the globe. And if, like me, you are the parent of a soon-to-be college freshman (fingers crossed), it could impact you in a number of ways. I’m talking about the demise of the traditional computer lab. You remember the computer lab. That room full of tables--row after row--lined ...

  8. DNA Can Tell You A Lot About Your Application


    I love seeing crazy comparisons and statistics, especially if it has anything to do with science. Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) If laid out end-to-end, all DNA within your body would go from the Earth to Pluto and back to the Earth (too bad Pluto is not a planet anymore.) Humans share 99% of their DNA with everyone else (makes the 7 degrees of separation game kind of pointless.) If you could ...
