Taking the Plunge at Scale with VMware Horizon, NVIDIA and IGEL Very large environments are those that can gain the most value from a virtual app and desktop deployment, benefiting from simplified management, improving ROI, and enhancing end user compute security and compliance. But they can also be the most daunting to design and implement. What if your task was to design and implement a 30,000 user VMware Horizon Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environment?

Here are two of my more recent posts: NVIDIA Virtual GPU Software v8.0 Just Released! Now Supporting Windows 10 1809 and Windows Server 2019! - Dated April 16th, 2019 Citrix Hypervisor (formerly XenServer) 8.0 Just Released! Now Supporting Windows Server 2019! - Dated April 25th, 2019 As you can see from the dates on these two blog posts, XenServer 8.0 was released within two weeks of NVIDIA vGPU Software v8.0. Many of us in the Citrix/NVIDIA community were left wondering if this [...]
As you may have seen, Citrix just released their latest and greatest Hypervisor (formerly XenServer) version 8.0 to web!! As the version number indicates, this is a MAJOR RELEASE. 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 Citrix Hypervisor that officially supports Windows Server 2019! That's awesome. This has been long awaited by many Citrix Hypervisor (aka XenServer) fans like me, and I am stoked to give it a whirl! As with previous releases, Citrix Hypervisor still [...]
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 [...]
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!
