Real World Sessions for Citrix Architects at VMworld San Francisco

Nick JeffriesBy Nick Jeffries

With a week to go to VMworld US, I thought it would be a good idea to highlight some amazing sessions we have in store for those of you with an interest in server-based computing. Whether you’ve got to roll-up your sleeves and start migrating users off your XenApp 5.0 server soon but don’t know where to start, or maybe you’re a VMware vSphere expert and need some tips on ensuring your architecture includes best practice for VMware Horizon 6 hosted apps – there will be something for everyone.

The first session is EUC5126 – Citrix Migration to VMware Horizon: How to Do It and What You Need to Know on Tuesday, September 1, at 1 PM.

We’ll cover everything you need to know for a seamless migration from Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop onto Horizon 6, including where to start and what to assess up front, the tools available to speed things up, and pitfalls to avoid to make sure you are successful. We’ll also run through a comparison of the various Citrix components in relation to Horizon 6 – great for those of you with years of Citrix experience to get a better understanding of how things line up.

Another great server-based computing-related session is EUC5516 – Delivering the Next Generation of Hosted Applications on Tuesday, September 1, at 5:30 PM.

For this panel discussion we have lined up a group of experts with decades of real-world EUC experience between them, which should make for a lively and interesting discussion. The panel will discuss how technologies such as UEM, App Volumes, ThinApp and solutions from F5 can be used to deliver the next generation of hosted applications and virtual desktops, whether you are deploying VMware Horizon or simply enhancing your existing XenApp infrastructure.

And if you want to explore things further or discuss your Server-Based Computing project in greater detail, come and have a chat with the team at the Professional Services Demo Station between 12–4 PM Wednesday.

See you at VMworld 2015 next week!
