Enabling non-persistent desktops with Amazon Workspaces
Amazon Workspaces is a great platform if you’re looking for a single data center and persistent desktops, but to deliver non-persistent desktops from multiple datacenters, you’ll need help. FSLogix is uniquely positioned to deliver single image management and user data roaming between multiple datacenters. Read on to learn how.

Amazon Workspaces deserves a lot of credit for being one of the first true DaaS platforms from a big-name vendor, but as IT departments have warmed up to DaaS, there are certain features that are missing. For example, when using Workspaces, you’re delivering persistent desktops to your users. This may be acceptable in small environments, but as you scale up, managing virtual desktops the same way as you’d manage traditional desktops starts to become challenging. Likewise, as you scale out, Amazon Workspaces doesn’t support multiple datacenters, which results in having to manage multiple desktops for each users that requires geographically-specific connectivity.

FSLogix makes products that can transform your persistent, geographically-locked Amazon Workspaces environment into a non-persistent, global platform that can be the future of your desktop strategy. Our App Masking product allows you to manage a single image for all of your users, turning on and off apps easily and in real-time. Profile Container places your users’ data into centralized, user-specific, VHD files that follow each user between desktops, and Cloud Cache technology takes that a step further and allows you to place those VHD containers in any geographical location so that it follows users between datacenters.

For more information on how to take your Amazon Workspaces project to the next level, read on. FSLogix can help, whether you’re an active customer, about to migrate, or just kicking the tires.

Conquering the Barriers Between Windows 10 & Legacy Software
This article explains how Cloudpaging technology can conquer the most common barriers to legacy application compatibility on Windows 10.
The urgency of migrating to Windows 10 is increasing among enterprises across the globe, primarily due to the heightened security measures Microsoft® has developed for the new operating system. Of course, such urgency is compounded by Microsoft’s announcement that it “will no longer provide security updates or technical support for devices running Windows 7,” effective January 14, 2020.  As organizations design strategies to migrate their desktops to a Windows 10 environment, they face many challenges.  This original article by Numecent’s principal software engineer, Robert Tran, details the ways in which Cloudpaging solves the many challenges legacy apps encounter when faced with migration to a new operating system.
The In-Depth Kubernetes Tutorial: Comparisons, Integrations & Architecture

The In-Depth Kubernetes Tutorial

Comparisons, Integrations & Architecture

Why Does Kubernetes Matter?

In a modern enterprise, software runs on any number of applications, each with different configurations and restrictions. Keeping these systems available, reliable and scalable, requires a lot of work, time and dedication.

Originally developed by Google, Kubernetes is an open source platform that eliminates most of the manual processes associated with deploying and scaling clusters in the hybrid cloud. No matter what platform you choose to run your containerized applications on, they will always function the same way with Kubernetes.

This comprehensive Kubernetes tutorial is designed to help you adopt a mission-critical architecture that provides reliability and scalability to your virtual infrastructure.

You Will Learn:

  • The critical role that Kubernetes plays in a successful digital transformation
  • The nuts and bolts behind Kubernetes architecture and deployments
  • The differences between Kubernetes, Docker and Mesos
  • Benefits of Kubernetes for AWS and Azure

How Parallels RAS Enhances Microsoft RDS
In 2001, Microsoft introduced the RDP protocol that allowed users to access an operating system’s desktop remotely. Since then, Microsoft has developed the Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) to facilitate remote desktop access. However, Microsoft RDS leaves a lot to be desired. This white paper highlights the pain points of RDS solutions, and how systems administrators can use Parallels® Remote Application Server (RAS) to enhance their Microsoft RDS infrastructure.

In 2001, Microsoft introduced the RDP protocol that allowed users to access an operating system’s desktop remotely. Since then, Microsoft has developed the Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) to facilitate remote desktop access.

However, Microsoft RDS leaves a lot to be desired. This white paper highlights the pain points of RDS solutions, and how systems administrators can use Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) to enhance their Microsoft RDS infrastructure.

Microsoft RDS Pain Points:
•    Limited Load Balancing Functionality
•    Limited Client Device Support
•    Difficult to Install, Set Up, and Update

Parallels RAS is an application and virtual desktop delivery solution that allows systems administrators to create a private cloud from which they can centrally manage the delivery of applications, virtual desktops, and business-critical data. This comprehensive VDI solution is well known for its ease of use, low license costs, and feature list.

How Parallels RAS Enhances Your Microsoft RDS Infrastructure:
•    Easy to Install and Set Up
•    Centralized Configuration Console
•    Auto-Configuration of Remote Desktop Session Hosts
•    High Availability Load Balancing (HALB)
•    Superior user experience on mobile devices
•    Supports hypervisors from Citrix, VMware, Microsoft’s own Hyper-V, Nutanix Acropolis, and Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM)

As this white paper highlights, Parallels RAS allows you to enhance your Microsoft Remote Desktop Services infrastructure, enabling you to offer a superior application and virtual desktop delivery solution.

Built around Microsoft’s RDP protocol, Parallels RAS allows systems administrators to do more in less time with fewer resources. Since it is easier to implement and use, systems administrators can manage and easily scale up the Parallels RAS farm without requiring any specialized training. Because of its extensive feature list and multisite support, they can build solutions that meet the requirements of any enterprise, regardless of its size and scale.

All healthcare professionals must face another stark reality: Ongoing changes in the healthcare industry place increasing pressure on workers to accomplish more in less time. Indeed, all healthcare professionals spend every day in a very demanding, very stressful environment where mistakes could be costly. It is not a place for printing problems, yet many healthcare professionals are plagued with printing problems every single day. In scenarios with specialized printers for prescription or medical records, patient privacy is vulnerable where papers are left alone after printing which can cause security breaches. This white paper outlines practical considerations in leveraging virtual printing solutions in a healthcare VDI environment. See how UniPrint's virtualized printing solution can improve print output management by increasing printer security, reducing print job costs, and enhances the mobility of workers on the go.
