In some scenarios, RES Subscriber is used to lock down a workstation. This is done by simply defining the RES Subscriber as the shell, and then launching a remote desktop. The advantage of this is that the computer then behaves like a thin client with minimal maintenance required. In the past, when using the Citrix Web Interface with the legacy Receiver, it was relatively easy to create the launch command line. It was even possible for administrators to generate custom ICA files. There were many different methods that could be used to launch a Citrix published desktop. However, when using Citrix Receiver 4.x with Citrix StoreFront, it may become a little more complex. The following example may help explain this ... READ MORE>>

Sean DonahueWhen I was young and foolish I ignored some of the biggest pot holes on the road to VDI salvation. But I am here to warn you against the mistakes I have made. 1 - Thou Shalt Not Be a Bandwidth Glutton Since Ethernet, and then fiber, became so prevalent and displaced slower speeds of ARCnet and Token Ring, we all too often take our bandwidth for granted. But when too many users are all accessing virtual desktops in a data center and using our Ethernet as their twisted pair, highway traffic jams can, and will, occur. And what is the result of binary traffic jams? Slow speeds for those users ... READ MORE>>

You strive for simpler desktop management, reduced storage costs, better central control, increased efficiency and security.

In this next part of the App-V 5 series of posts I will show you a way to use RES Software products to create an App-V 5 infrastructure. Basically there are two major App-V 5 management solutions available; the App-V 5 Management and Publishing server and the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2012 SP1

But what if you don't have these management tools? Can you still create your App-V 5 infrastructure?

The answer is simple: yes you can. However, you will need to use some scripting and get yourself up to speed with the PowerShell commands for App-V 5. Using the following example, ... READ MORE>>

Ok. It's here! RES Workspace Manager 2012 SR3, including lots of new fun stuff like Microsoft App-V 5 Integration. Sounds cool, but how do we actually configure this? Part 1 of this Blog will give you an overview of the basics. This includes creating a managed App-V application in the RES Workspace Manager console and some background in the technology behind this. The Basic Changes in App-V 5 When it comes to sequencing applications and the basic functionality, App-V version 5 is not so different from App-V 4.6. However: a lot has changed in the way the packages are placed on the clients. Also, there are new ways to deliver packages to clients, ... READ MORE>>
