A simple truth: Current application delivery and deployment
solutions for Windows®-based desktops are often not fast enough, and the
methods employed introduce complexities and limitations that cost enterprises
valuable time, money and productivity. There is a strong need for a solution
that is faster to deploy, simpler to use, and improves productivity rather than
degrades it. In fact, the best solution would seamlessly and instantaneously
personalizing the entire desktop, from profiles and printers to applications
and extensions, while supporting license compliance and cost optimization. And,
of course, it wouldn’t matter if the target desktops were physical, virtual, or
cloud-based. FSLogix is delivering that solution today.
UNIQUE, CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY
XenApp and XenDesktop 7.7 are fast becoming the standard platforms for
deploying application and desktop virtualization in today’s expanding
enterprise, they provide a unified platform that makes application and desktop
delivery fast and easy.
utilize the new Flexcast Management Architecture (FMA) as well as several new
features and enhancements to improve the security, manageability and remote
access of your virtual applications and desktops.
In this Citrix-Ready white paper, Top Eight Best Practices for Deploying Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7.7,
you will discover real-world experiences as well as the top eight best
practices in deploying Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop 7.x, including how to:
Backup is just not about storage. It’s the intelligence on top of storage. Typically when businesses think of backup, they see it as a simple data copy from one location to another. Traditional file systems would suffice if the need were to just copy the data. But backup is the intelligence applied on top of storage where data can be put to actual use. Imagine the ability to use backup data for staging, testing, development and preproduction deployment. Traditional file systems are not designed to meet such complex requirements.
With the advent of information technology, more and more organizations are relying on IT for running their businesses. They cannot afford to have downtime on their critical applications and need instant access to data in the event of disaster. Hence, a new type of file system is necessary to satisfy this need.
VembuHIVETM manages the metadata smartly through its patent-pending technology, in a way that is agnostic to the file system of the backup, which is why we call VembuHIVETM, a file system of file systems. This helps the backup application to instantly associate the data in VembuHIVETM to any file system metadata, thereby allowing on-demand file or image restores in many possible file formats. The data and metadata storage, harness cluster file system and computing and storage.
This is a really powerful concept that will address some very interesting use cases not just in the backup and recovery domain but also in other domains, such as big-data analytics.
The key to the design of VembuHIVETM is its novel mechanism to capture and generate appropriate metadata and store it intelligently in a cloud infrastructure. The increment data (the changes with respect to a previous version of the same backup) are treated like versions in a version control system (CVS, GIT). This revolutionary way of data capture and metadata generation provides seamless support to a wide range of complex restore use cases.
This document contains the steps required to install a Proof-of-Concept (POC) environment for RDSH Full Desktop with FSLogix Apps. POC environments created according to this install guide can be used to test applications controlled by FSLogix Apps in a reproducible way. We build the environment in the cloud in order to minimize costs associated with required hardware, and to streamline the build process.
The testing environment is built entirely in Azure and contains an IaaS RDSH deployment including the supporting network and domain infrastructure. A non-Azure based client component accesses the RDSH deployment.
The private cloud offers most of the advantages of the public cloud: Self-service and scalability, multi-tenancy, the ability to provision machines, and change computing resources on-demand. Private cloud also improves on security by limiting access to key IT people. Complexities are emerging for DevOps teams around their "infrastructure as code" practices as larger companies consider moving their most business-critical applications off the public cloud and onto private/hybrid clouds.
Complexity issues include:
Private clouds are specialized cloud computing implementations that are purpose-built to address some limitation or shortcoming around the use of public clouds. Core factors that drive private cloud adoption are compliance, security, and even the sense of control that many in enterprise IT require. Or, think they require.
As DevOps organizations are built within enterprises, private clouds as the deployment platforms mesh well with existing DevOps automation approaches and tool sets. Those within enterprises can tell you that private clouds are a sound architectural option, and they require “some time.” Just as public clouds require “some time.” Most enterprises will end up with both, using hybrid or multi-cloud implementations. In this paper, we’ll focus on private clouds, and the steps to successfully implement private clouds.
SvSAN is a software-defined storage solution designed to run on
two or more servers. It is uniquely architected with the combination of a light
footprint, availability out-of-the-box, uncompromising performance and
centralized management deployment across a remote and branch office
SvSAN eliminates the need for a physical SAN which are costly,
complex and present a single point of failure. With high availability,
out-of-the-box business critical applications and IT services suffer no
downtime and the removal of a SAN along with the low cost of commodity servers
and storage lowers IT acquisition and operating cost. Thousands of large
organizations and SMEs across 72 countries have already chosen SvSAN to
modernize their IT infrastructure.
This white paper discusses
the latest product release of StorMagic SvSAN and the common IT challenges that
can be resolved by deploying StorMagic SvSAN in your organization.
