#XenDesktop 7.1 on #Hyper-V Pilot Guide! – #Citrix

February 19, 2014 1 comment

This is a great PoC guide, some thing I would have done differently in detail but overall great work!

You’ve heard of XenDesktop 7.1, experienced a demo and worked through the Reviewer’s Guide. Now where do you turn when you’re ready for a PoC, pilot and preparations for a full-scale rollout?

Here on the Citrix Readiness and Enablement Team, we’re always looking for ways to empower our customers to be successful on their projects. To this end, we’ve taken one of our most popular hands-on lab guides used to train hundreds of internal and external students and reworked it for consumption by the masses. The XenDesktop 7.1 on Hyper-V Pilot Guide can be download fromhttps://citrix.sharefile.com/d/scaa256260df4ab3b. In this guide we cover the following topics with step-by-step instructions and screenshots:

– Configuring System Center Virtual Machine Manager and Installing the Agent
– Setting Up SQL Server Mirroring for a XenDesktop site
– Setting up the XenDesktop Site
– Joining a Controller to an Existing Site

XenMobile product overview… and It’s nice! via @BasvanKaam – #BYOD, #MDM, #Citrix

March 14, 2013 2 comments

Wow! I must say that Bas van Kaam has done a great wrap-up here! I highly recommend you to read this blog post!!! 🙂

It was only about a month ago when I was writing my Blog about the CloudGateway that I wondered which route  Citrix would take now that they acquired Zenprise, well… here it is… XenMobile, another Xen sibling sees the light! Lets jump right in…

I had the opportunity to make use of one of Citrix’s demo environments to have a closer look at MDM, which is an awesome way to explore new and existing products by the way, if your company is a Citrix partner and has access I definitely recommend having a look. Besides that I used the Citrix E-Docs website as well as Citrix.com to find as much information as possible.

The main focus of this article will be on XenMobile MDM as the Mobile Solutions Bundle (one of the two editions available) focuses primarily on the CloudGateway which I already discussed in one of my previous blogs.

MDM?

MDM stand for Mobile Device Management and it’s just that! Here’s what Citrix has to say about it: As per Citrix: XenMobile MDM is a robust mobile device management solution that delivers role-based management, configuration, and security for both corporate and employee-owned devices. Upon user device enrollment, IT can provision policies and apps to devices automatically, blacklist or whitelist apps, detect and protect against jailbroken or rooted devices, and selectively wipe a device that is lost, stolen, or out of compliance. Users can use any device they choose, while IT can ensure compliance of corporate assets and secure corporate content on the device.

Editions

There are two editions: XenMobile MDM and the Mobile Solutions Bundle. XenMobile MDM primarily focuses on (hardware) device management, more on it’s extensive feature set shortly. Every major platform is supported including: iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, Symbian and Microsoft Windows 8. It includes the XenMobile Secure Mobile Gateway (SMG) and XenMobile SharePoint Data Leak Prevention (DLP) as well as the XenMobile Mobile Service Provider (ZSM) and the XenMobile Remote Support Application Toolset.

Five enterprise-ready antivirus systems – #Webroot, @Webroot

This is an interesting article! And I’m happy to see the only cloud-based product on the list!

5: Webroot SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection

Webroot SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection is the only solution on this list that is cloud-based only. Some of the others offer a cloud-based service option, but Webroot is the only one that does not offer an on-premise system. However, Webroot is still one of the most impressive applications in the list. The dashboard gives admins a quick overview of their enterprise, endpoint details can be quickly checked, and policies, reports, and logs can be easily viewed. On top of that, though, is the client: it installs in seconds (literally about 6-8 seconds for me) and scans in less than two minutes (1 minute, 42 seconds for my test system). Also, Webroot claims that their client software will run alongside any other security software without conflict. The main disadvantage of this system is its cloud-based nature – company’s deploying Webroot may have limited Internet bandwidth or security concerns with cloud software.
