Dutch Citrix Users Group – DuCUG 2016-1
On Friday 18 March we organized already our ninth event. This time the event was hosted by Global Knowledge Utrecht. Traditionally our chairman Jon opened the event. He started thanking the sponsors, followed by explaining the agenda.The first session was a new concept we tried: What’s New at Citrix. In 45 minutes three presenters showed new features or releases in the Citrix stack. Timco Hazelaar started off with StoreFront 3.5. He mentioned the new enhancements, followed by a quick walkthrough to the administration console including the customization possibilities. The second session was about Citrix Zones presented by me. I talked through the history of zones in Presentation Server and XenApp to the current implementation of the zones in XenDesktop 7.7/7.8 including the Optimal HDX routing option in StoreFront 3.5. Kees Baggerman was the last one about AppDisks. Kees started explaining what AppDisks offers, followed by sharing his experiences and showed a demo of the process of creating the Appdisk.
Because Andrew Morgan was delayed at customs, Andrew Wood was next about Citrix Lifecycle Management. After a funny introduction, as always, Andrew started of Life Cycle Management within Citrix Workspace Cloud and the industry pain points of on-premises infrastructures. Andrew continued with the key components of CLM (resource location, lifecycle management agent, Citrix lifecycle management connector, blueprints). The high level architecture was the next topic, followed by the available blue prints and components (where also partners and community can add blueprints). Andrew also demoed the technology. Andrew also discussed the license costs, which are pretty high.
