FSLogix, a leading innovator in engineering the enterprise class virtual workspace, announced today, the general availability of FSLogix Office 365 Container for Citrix.  Announced at Citrix Synergy 2016, this solution enables enterprises to get the best user performance and IT return-on-investment when using Office 365 with virtual desktops alongside of their legacy profile implementations.

FSLogix Office 365 Container for Citrix includes a range of new functionality to support roaming Office 365, and builds on the award winning release of FSLogix Profile Container, released in May of 2015.  This drop-in solution works with profile products from leading vendors, giving instant support for Office 365 and extending the life of existing infrastructure investments, while creating no disruption for IT or end users.

"Our customers are extremely excited about Office 365 for a variety of reasons, including reducing their internal hardware and staffing requirements, adding more predictability to their long term budgets, and moving to ‘per-user' licensing models for their productivity apps," said Mark Henderson, Director of Application Services, XenTegra. "With ongoing pressure to reduce operational costs and enhance business agility, we're seeing the demand to expand the use of virtual workspaces across the broad enterprise.  FSLogix plays a key and growing role in making these projects a reality today, without having to compromise on other strategic initiatives like Office 365."

Microsoft's Fastest Growing Commercial Product

"Office 365 has over 70 million commercial Monthly Active Users, and over 70% of Fortune 500 companies have purchased Office 365 in the last 12 months - it's Microsoft's fastest growing commercial product ever," said Kevin Goodman, Chief Executive Officer, FSLogix.  "Starting today, CIOs can implement virtual desktops and Office 365 without having to rip and replace their existing profile infrastructure.  With this solution we're seeing enterprises recover an average of 40 hours a year in lost productivity per-employee, while dramatically reducing IT cost and labor associated with supporting these environments for enterprise quality performance."

FSLogix Office 365 Container For Citrix provides:

  • True Cached Exchange Mode - with patent-pending OST containerization, Outlook on XenApp and XenDesktop can now function and perform as if locally installed on a high performance workstation.  Users don't need to compromise email and calendar performance to adopt strategic initiatives like virtual desktops.
  • Real-Time Search - enables inbox and personal folder search to work as designed on XenDesktop, with maximum performance, and no workarounds requiring end-user training or unique behavior between physical and virtual environments.
  • Plug and Play management - features a micro-application footprint with drop-in installation, GPO templates, simple rules based configuration, and the use of existing CIFS/SMB servers, improving the ROI of existing enterprise infrastructure.
  • Infrastructure compatibility - works on all major virtual desktop and hosted email solutions, complimenting profile management products traditionally used in virtual workspace environments.
  • Affordable pricing - with flexible annual subscription pricing, there's no barrier to making email on virtual desktops enterprise class.
