What I Learned from CXD-252 Moving to the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Service with Microsoft Azure Course

It's not every day I get an opportunity to take an official in-person or virtual classroom lecture and lab course! It's quite easy to get busy working and consulting in the field with clients, that official classroom based training takes a backseat. So, when the opportunity arose to take a five-day online class and knock out a new requirement for my early days Citrix partnership, I was excited to see what new things I might learn. While this course is not brand new (it released in early 2018), it has been well updated and stays somewhat current with the changes [...]

NVIDIA Virtual GPU Software v8.0 Just Released! Now Supporting Windows 10 1809 and Windows Server 2019!

While there are a lot of awesome new features in this release, I primarily wanted to write a blog post to highlight the fact that this is the first release of NVIDIA vGPU Software that officially supports Windows Server 2019! That's awesome. Along with it comes support for the latest Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel (SAC) build, version 1809. This has been long awaited by many NVIDIA vGPU fans like me, and I am stoked to give it a whirl!

Just in time for the New Year, Citrix Chained Reboot Scripts now support Citrix Cloud and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (CVAD) 7 1811!

The end of the year always comes a time of reflection and planning. As I look into the future projects I am embarking on, I realized that it has now been more than 8 years since my first Citrix Chained Reboot script was released to the web in 2010! This is pretty awesome to reflect, seeing that this was one of the first community resources that encouraged me to launch my first blog site. Now, time for some updates... As more clients begin moving their control plane to Citrix Cloud, I felt it was appropriate to do some testing and [...]

Is Getting Started with Windows Server 2019 and Citrix Cloud Apps and Desktops Service Even Easier? Let’s Have a Look…

Yesterday I wrote a blog post, which you can find here, talking about Windows Server 2019 with Citrix Apps and Desktops 7 1808 (Current Release), which received a bit of buzz online. One online protagonist (who shall remain nameless) reached out to see if Citrix Cloud Apps and Desktops Service with Windows Server 2019 worked as advertised, and was just as easy to implement. To which my thought was, I don't see why not, Citrix Cloud is Agile, DevOps oriented, evergreen and even more leading edge in the development cycles than its on-prem brethren, it should be a snap! Then [...]
