BriForum 2014 Boston - Shawn Bass - HDX: High Definition eXperience –or– Have no iDea eXperience?


Presented by Shawn Bass

The HDX Protocol from Citrix has been through a crazy amount of innovation in the last few years. It used to be that you really needed to tune HDX like crazy. Recently, Citrix has been getting better about adaptive tuning out of the box. However, there are some differences between the HDX implementation that exists in XenDesktop and the HDX implementation that exists in XenApp. Also, there’s a big functional difference between the HDX support for Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, HTML5, etc. Lastly, people often don’t understand that there should be very different HDX configuration settings for users accessing via the LAN vs. over varying WAN circuits. Attend this session to learn about the various settings within HDX policy, how they operate differently on various platforms and how they impact user experience and session density. 

Attendees will learn:
• How to optimize HDX for different network connections
• What HDX features exist for different client endpoint platforms
• Decisions on HDX policy settings can have an impact on user experience and session density
• How to make the proper decisions to have the best outcome

If you like what you see, maybe you should attend in person. This year we have two BriForums. BriForum London is from 19-20 May at etc Venues St Paul location, and BriForum Denver at the Westin Denver Downtown (both are great locations!). Attendees get exclusive access to the videos from BOTH shows as soon as we can process them (around 2 weeks after a show) until we open them up to the public around 6-8 months later. Attend one BriForum and you get access to 83 amazing sessions!
