GotoMeeting Free – yes, free collaboration!! – #Citrix, #GotoMeeting

Well, I can’t count the number of times that I’ve heard people saying that they wished they had GotoMeeting licenses or a similar capability that is free… and what just happened!?! Citrix released a free version! 🙂

It of course has some limitations and lack of capabilities compared to the full service you get when being it, but if you can survive with using a Chrome browser to collaborate with you colleagues, friends and loved ones then this is a great service!

Citrix GoToMeeting Free

Mathieu Hofman, researcher and developer of GoToMeeting Free, and Eric Bensley, GoToMeeting Senior Product Manager, explain what motivated them to create the newest member of the GoToMeeting product line, GoToMeeting Free.

Hi, Mathieu and Eric here. We are really excited about the launch of GoToMeeting Free! This started simply as technology innovation and now has evolved into the latest addition to our award-winning communications solutions. GoToMeeting Free is an entirely free, browser-based (Chrome), unlimited-use video conferencing product for up to three people. And we made it simple: no need to log in, download additional software, or enable plug-ins.

When our teams first began working on this product it was not about adding to GoToMeeting but rather seeing what would happen if we took great technology – Chrome and WebRTC – and created something that would let people connect instantly in a face-to-face experience. In our efforts there were a few things we aimed to address:

  • Eliminate the need for downloads by running from a browser
  • Make getting into sessions fast and efficient – no sign up, no access codes, just click and go
  • Deliver a high quality video and audio experience
  • Available in Chrome Web store

The result: GoToMeeting Free is like the “casual coffee” of meetings by removing the barriers to quickly connecting with anyone in a meaningful way…

And here you have some other details from the GotoMeeting blog:

What You Need to Know about GoToMeeting Free

The cost of doing business these days can be daunting. And with the growth of small-business startups comes the need for low-cost and highly collaborative software solutions. Enter GoToMeeting Free.

What is GoToMeeting Free? It’s an entirely free addition to the Citrix collaboration suite that offers unlimited-use video conferencing for up to three people. And did we mention it’s completely browser-based in Google Chrome? Meaning no need to download any additional software.

Who can use GoToMeeting Free? Everyone. GoToMeeting Free was designed with lean startups and entrepreneurs in mind, but this software is open to anyone with Chrome, a webcam and a reliable Internet connection.

Why use GoToMeeting Free? If you are hosting small informal meetings for dispersed teams or your office doesn’t have the budget for a company-sponsored video conferencing account, then this is the solution. There’s no limit to the amount of meetings you can host, and it allows you to connect instantly with a face-to-face experience.

We wanted to build tool that was something that we would use ourselves, so here are a few of the areas we looked to address:

  • No pesky software downloads. Because GoToMeeting Free runs from a browser (Chrome), there’s no need to download additional software. Just send your attendees the link and join the meeting – it’s that easy.
  • Faster join times. Because there is no software to download, no sign-up required and no access codes needed, all you need to do is simply click to connect instantly.
  • High-quality video and audio experience. Using WebRTC technology we were able to create a product that would allow small audiences to connect seamlessly with no dial-in required.

We’ve gotten rave reviews so far on the simple and straight-forward experience of GoToMeeting Free. And we are in development for additional features that will allow teams an even higher lever of collaboration in the near future. We hope you’ll try it out.

GREAT VIDEO – #Citrix #XenDesktop vs. #VMware #Horizon #View installation video

January 23, 2014 Leave a comment

This is really funny! Have a look at this video to see how you can compare a XenDesktop and a Horizon View installation side-by-side!

And another thing that is kind of funny is that VMware still compares Horizon View with XenDesktop 5.6: https://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/techpaper/VMware-View-vs-Citrix-XenDesktop-Datasheet.pdf

#Ericsson Mobility Report – November – via @Ericsson, #mobility

November 12, 2013 Leave a comment

This is really interesting to read! Great job Ericsson!

On the pulse of the Networked Society

Ericsson has performed in-depth data traffic measurements since the early days of mobile broadband from a large base of live networks covering all regions of the world.

The aim of this report is to share analysis based on these measurements, internal forecasts and other relevant studies to provide insights into the current traffic and market trends.

We will continue to share traffic and market data, along with our analysis, on a regular basis. We hope you find it engaging and valuable.

In the last issue of the Ericsson Mobility Report we described app coverage. In the November 2013 edition we take this analysis a step further by using the radio characteristics of a WCDMA/HSPA network to predict coverage area and indoor penetration for popular smartphone applications such as streaming music and video, video telephony, and circuit-switched voice. We also apply the same app type requirements on downlink speed to compare network performance in 17 cities globally.

Download the November report here!

What’s also cool is that Ericsson have published a Traffic Exploration tool that is really cool! 🙂

#Citrix #NetScaler #SDX Installation Overview Video

This is a pretty good “quick” video of the SDX installation! Have a look at it, and remember not to use 1Gbps interfaces only if you want to run more than 7 VPX’s on the SDX! Then go for 10Gbps interfaces or many channels/interfaces of 1Gbps to not hit the SR-IOV limit of 7/1Gbps interface! 😉

Description
12:45 screen capture with PPT overview on IP Addressing, and walking through install, IP Change for SDX’s SVM and XS IPs, licenses, and then the install of a NetScaler instance with NSIP and SNIP. This is intended to be a quick overview before you set out on a first SDX install, and is in compliment with the SDX Quick Install Guide.

See the video here!
