Bye-Bye Citrix SmartAuditor, Hello Session Recording!


At Citrix Summit, the annual Citrix channel partner conference, Mark Templeton stood on stage and talked about some great new XenApp and XenDesktop features and tech previews. In case you missed the full press release, check it out here.  The announcement covers a bunch of announcements for new features that will be released in 1H 2015 like the Linux Virtual Desktop Agent (Linux VDA) tech preview, an updated Optimization Pack for Microsoft Lync, new HDX technologies from the Framehawk acquisition, a tech preview of DesktopPlayer for Windows, the newly expanded architecture of the XenServer 6.5 hypervisor(already available), and last but certainly not least a new feature for XenApp 7.6 called Session Recording.  This blog is focused on the upcoming Session Recording feature, but remember this extensive list of innovations is just for Q1 with even more exciting functionality to come later in the year, so get ready for 2015! It is going to be a great year for XenDesktop and XenApp!

What is Session Recording?

Session Recording enables you, the Citrix admin, to record active XenApp 7.6 virtual app and server hosted desktop sessions, based on user, application or server and then archive that recording for reference when you need it.  For those XenApp 6.5 admins out there, Session Recording is based on SmartAuditor technology, but Session Recording is specifically designed for the XenApp 7.x FlexCast Reference Architecture (quick reminder IMA is the architecture of XenApp 6.5 and earlier, FMA is the architecture for XenApp 7.x). So when would you need Session Recording and why? Here’s a couple of examples to get you started.
