The First Commercially Available, High Performance, Multi-Monitor Raspberry Pi for Citrix! Featuring Raspberry Pi Zero!
Last year, I showed how an inexpensive $77 endpoint could be used for Citrix and VMware virtualized environments, to drive a single 4K display. You can find that video here and full blog post here. Over the last couple years there has been a lot of buzz and excitement around the Raspberry Pi, and its application and use within a Citrix environment as a high-performance endpoint, for its low price point. As I had talked with customers, many had become disinterested, due to its inherent limitation as a single monitor (only) solution. A multi-monitor Raspberry Pi option had been made [...]
My Presentation at the Inaugural Portland Citrix User Group Community (CUGC) Meetup – FSLogix, Windows 10 and Office 365!
Last Thursday on August 31st, I had the honor of presenting at the inaugural Portland Citrix User Group Community (CUGC) Meetup, representing FSLogix and talking about the pains of deploying Windows 10 and Office 365. I was joined by Andy Tynes, their VP of Worldwide Sales, who presented the company overview and first couple slides. Below you will find a copy of my slide presentation from this meetup. Looking forward to presenting at many more CUGC meetups in the coming months and years! Enjoy.

Over the last couple months, many of you have wondered, and some of you have asked, where I've been and what I've been up to. Long story short, I've been very busy and heads down working with our incredible team at Entisys360 to build a product we are publicly announcing to the market, called our Entisys360 Workspace Cloud offering! This is our latest development to enable Desktop Transformation, through a Digital Workspace for our valued clients. It goes beyond Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), and provides a fully integrated, fully managed, Workspace-as-a-Service environment for our mid-market and enterprise clients. This [...]
The $77 Compute Stick Endpoint for Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop and VMware Horizon Virtual Desktops, that Supports 4K Displays!
Over the holiday, I gifted a neat little compute stick for a family member, called an ASUS VivoStick PC (VS10). This gift was purchased as an inexpensive home theater PC, as it had Windows 10 and all the supported codecs for Audio/Video/Pictures and could run Plex Media Server. I originally had purchased a Roku 4 device to give, but in testing, I found out that it didn't support all of the video codecs that would be needed. So, I decided to throw in the towel and buy a full Windows PC for best long-term use, as that's what I've been [...]
Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop 7.11 Proof of Concept Installation and Configuration using Windows Server 2016 and NVIDIA GRID K2 GPU Cards!
During Microsoft Ignite this week in Atlanta, Georgia, Microsoft announced the launch of Windows Server 2016 with volume licensing versions being available for download mid-October. This was a bit disappointing, as I was hoping to have final Windows Server 2016 ISOs available this week in the Volume License Service Center and MSDN libraries. Oh well, looks like we'll have to wait another couple weeks…While the full licensed products are not quite available, Microsoft did release Windows Server 2016 Evaluation. You'll note, this build is no longer considered Tech Preview, so it should be fairly close to the GA which will be released [...]
At the end of August, along with 23,000 others, I attended VMworld 2016 in Las Vegas. While we were in Las Vegas, along with my EUC Podcast co-hosts, we recorded a Live from VMworld Podcast, Episode #10, you can find here. This year had a lot of good content, the breakouts and show floor was buzzing, and it was a great time networking with colleagues and customers. Earlier this week, with one of our Principal Architects, Bryan Zanoli, I presented on a VMworld 2016 Update Webinar. You can find more details and the recording for the webinar below! Enjoy. Did [...]
As many of you know, at the beginning of April my wife and I tragically and unexpectedly lost our youngest of three kids, Carson Isaiah. I can only begin to express to you how much the thoughts, prayers, support, and financial contributions mean to our family! I still can't believe we raised over $35k toward Carson's fund for the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Truly honoring and humbling. I could easily write a blog post filled with all the encouragement we've received, and have been using Facebook as my public 'outlet' for processing this very abrupt personal change in our lives. One [...]
Yesterday VMware released to web Horizon 7, which will likely be the most significant product launch for their End User Computing portfolio this year. Along with Horizon 7 come a number of very exciting new features that have been outlined in great detail in the following blogs: What's New With VMware Horizon 7 Introducing True SSO (Single Sign-On) in VMware Horizon 7 Network Ports Diagram Updated for Horizon 7 Taking a Closer Look at Horizon 7: Desktop & App Virtualization Reimagined VMware Horizon Blast Extreme Acceleration with NVIDIA GRID VMware Instant Clone Technology for Just-In-Time Desktop Delivery in Horizon 7 [...]
Last week in Santa Clara, I was honored by NVIDIA to be one of thirteen professionals to join NVIDIA enterprise graphics teams for the first ever GRID Days event! GRID Days was a fun packed two day event networking with industry professionals, and getting an inside look into the NVIDIA enterprise graphics teams, namely GRID, Quadro, and Tesla. During this event we had exclusive access to the testing and development teams, product management and marketing, executive sponsors, along with management and support teams. Wow! Much of the roadmap and content required that all professionals sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), so [...]
