  • Wow! TS session-to-VM portability from Aussie startup Luflogix

    Imagine the scenario where a user could start a virtual desktop session on a shared Terminal Server. Then after awhile, the user could "stream" that session from the Terminal Server to their laptop, and take that session with them offline running in a local Vista VM. This is what Brisbane-based Luflogix promises to deliver in the second quarter this year.

  • A GUI for Windows Server 2008 Server Core

    Guy Teverovsky created a nice GUI for the 'lazy admins' who want to run Windows Server 2008 Server Core without spending time with the command-line parameters. So he created a GUI for the GUI-less Windows Server 2008 platform ;-) The basic configuration utility for Windows Server 2008 Server Core presents the basic WS08 configuration options in a very easy way....

  • How to publish a pre-configured Citrix Access Management Console so that discovery runs automatically

    One of the great benfits of Presentation Server / XenApp is the ability to delegate administrative functions to help desk admins and support engineers. Unfortunately if you simply publish the Access Management Console for them, the "discovery" process will prompt the user every time the console is launched, which is annoying and confusing. In this artcile, Katie Koepke took the time to figure out how you can pre-configure the AMC so that discovery runs without user intervention....

  • Citrix iForum becomes "Citrix Synergy"

    Citrix has changed the name of their flagship conference again. After calling it "Citrix iForum" from 1999 - 2006, and then renaming it to the "App Delivery Expo" for 2007, the 2008 event will be called "Citrix Synergy." If you can get over the "three names in three years" thing, I think this is actually a good move. The "App Delivery Expo" was not a good name. It was too long and hard to remember....

  • Will VMware still exist in five years?

    This wasn't an article I intended to write right now. But after Alex Barrett blogged about a conversation I had with her last week on this very topic, my inbox has been flooded with emails asking "Did Alex really quote you properly?" and "Are you crazy?" The answers to those two questions are "yes" and "quite possibly."...

  • Another day, another Hyper-V...

    Monday I wrote about a failed attempt with Hyper-V ( http://www.brianmadden.com/blog/TimMangan/My-Weekend-with-Hyper-V-And-Back ). Benny Tritsch chimed in and told about the success he had with a similar setup. Well I can't let Benny show me up, can...

  • What products does Citrix make now? (Spring 2008 edition)

    Since we last posted an article last June listing the entire Citrix product line, Citrix has re-invented itself as a "virtualization" company and re-branded their product line to suit. Our intent was to keep that article up-to-date, but with so many changes, it's probably worth keeping the old article as a historical snapshot and creating another one for the "New Citrix." ...

  • My Weekend with Hyper-V (And Back)

    One of the perks of my job is that I get opportunities to play with lots of new stuff, sometimes before I really should. I have been running the betas of Server 2008 for quite a while, and cut over one of my servers to RC0 just as soon as I could get...
