Citrix Synergy QA 

Are you attending Citrix Synergy 2018 in Anaheim, CA?  If so, I invite you to add Flexxible IT to your MUST SEE list of vendors.

With so many vendors exhibiting at Citrix Synergy this year, how do you know which booths to visit and who to get on your busy schedule?  One of the companies on VMblog's list this year is Flexxible IT. They have created an industrialized solution for virtual workspaces, leveraging proprietary technologies and Citrix Systems solutions to create hyperconverged appliances that allow enterprise users to focus on growing their businesses rather than IT.  

Read this exclusive pre-show interview between VMblog and Flexxible IT to learn what they have planned for the upcoming Synergy 2018 event.


VMblog:  As a Citrix Synergy 2018 sponsor, give us the rundown of your booth setup this year.

Flexxible IT:  Flexxible IT are a Platinum sponsor. You can find us on booth 207 just outside the keynote theatre, next to the Citrix stand. You can't miss us!


We are delighted to welcome on our stand our alliance partners: HPE, HP Inc., IBM, LoginVSI. 

VMblog:  Is there anything interesting or unique about this year's booth setup compared to previous years or events?

Flexxible IT:  With our alliance partners joining us, it's a great opportunity to dig deeper into the solutions on offer. We have a fantastic demo area which will feature 10 HP Thin-Clients connected to a Flexxible│SmartWorkspaces Appliance. Click here for more information on the complete end-to-end solution with HP. 

IBM will be demonstrating their Workplace Virtualization Services Desktop offering. Desktop virtualization-as-a-service simplifies transitioning to a modern workplace where employees access applications and data anytime and anywhere.

VMblog:  What message should an attendee take back with them to their boss after visiting your booth?

Flexxible IT:  Flexxible IT are the #1 platform for Citrix on-premise and Citrix Cloud, improving performance and login times up to 50%, at any scale via a single console.

From IBM, you'll hear about a new Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) offering with Flexxible IT based on Citrix virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) for enterprises with 50 to 2,000 users, that can scale as your company grows.

We are focused on developing technology and solutions that enable companies to provide the best virtual workspaces by:

  • Providing unique real-time user experience visibility
  • Ensuring end-user satisfaction with a consistent user experience
  • Utilizing a proven, automated deployment methodology
  • Enhancing your security and compliance capabilities
  • Enabling fast deployment times

VMblog:  Why should a Synergy attendee add you to their MUST SEE list?

Flexxible IT:  We want to help customers maximize their investment in Citrix virtual workspaces. 

If you're an existing Citrix customer, we can help simplify the day-to-day management of your environment, provide an automated way to migrate your XenApp or XenDesktop versions or for those looking at Citrix Cloud, we can provide a on-premise, multi-tenant solution.

With so many developments this year, it's a great opportunity to review our technology and to meet our alliance partners. 

VMblog:  How many times have you sponsored Synergy?  And what keeps you coming back?

Flexxible IT:  The Citrix community of customers, partners and vendors! It's the best place to meet everyone. This will be our third year as a sponsor.

VMblog:  Why is this a must sponsor event for your company?

Flexxible IT:  Our solution is based around Citrix technology and so this is the prime event for us to meet new and existing Citrix customers. It's also an opportunity to meet senior Citrix execs, our focus partners and community members.

VMblog:  Can you give VMblog readers a sneak peek as to what you will be showing off at your booth this year? 

Flexxible IT:  We are delighted to be working with IBM and recommend that you attend our joint speaker session 'Enabling an anytime, anywhere desktop with IBM and Flexxible IT' on Thursday 10th May at 11.30am in Room 207A.  The presentation will provide insights on how to overcome the constraints of legacy desktop infrastructure and how to enhance your end-user experience. 

IBM Workplace Virtualization Services help clients across industries manage virtual environments. This encompasses everything from helping to improve data security, to modernizing legacy apps, to supporting on-premises, private or public clouds.

There have been some exciting developments with HPE and our appliance range, providing a complete end-to-end integrated solution, right to the desktop with HP Inc. mobile and thin-clients.  See the solution in action!

You'll be able to see the HP Thin-Client and Flexxible IT solution on our stand with 10 demo areas connected to a Flexxible│SmartWorkspaces appliance.

Our single management console can transparently fully manage and monitor the whole virtualization stack: hardware, infrastructure, desktops, applications, manage several sites and ultimately deliver a great user experience.

VMblog:  What are you looking forward to most at this year's event?

Flexxible IT:  Being part of the buzz around Citrix Synergy is incredibly motivating. Talking to customers and getting feedback on how we can help them is invaluable.

VMblog:  What do you think we need to do collectively as an ecosystem to strengthen the industry?

Flexxible IT:  I love the community feel between vendors. It's important to have a cohesive message that helps take people on a journey with their workspace projects. Vendor partnerships and alliances are important to support this.

VMblog:  What do you hope to come away with from exhibiting at Synergy?  What does event success look like to you?

Flexxible IT:  To come away with the latest information around the Citrix products, partners, and industry.  To have great conversations with customers and gain knowledge that our technology can help them. Success can be measured further down the road when we are able to resolve customers' problems and help them to achieve their future objectives.

Flexxible IT:  Network as much as you can. Learn as much as you can.  Talk to everyone! This is a great time to investigate new technology, solutions, access latest training and product updates.
