10 XenClient Updates

11 Migration Tool : Work In Progress
NOTE: XenApp 7.5 doesn’t have all the features of 6.5. When Citrix switched from IMA to FMA, which is what XenDesktop has been developed on since 5.0, some features didn’t make the list. - Request access to Migration tools

16 Traditional Multi-tenancy Approach: Creation of Tenant Partitions
Rate limits, RBA and ACLs partition the instance All tenants Share a single instance Partitions NOT fully isolated No CPU or memory isolation No version independence No high availability independence No lifecycle independence Common Global Instance Tenant Partitions (Partitions Fail for TRUE Isolation)

17 Citrix XenMobile 9.0

18 Define your mobility strategy
Don’t Care Manage Data Manage Device Manage Applications Manage it all Decide on Cloud or On-premise or hybrid

19 Citrix XenMobile Secure mobile web browser with WorxWeb
Secure document sharing, sync and editing with ShareFile Secure , calendar and contacts with WorxMail Geo-Fencing Remote Wipe (Selective or Full) Identify/Take action on Jailbroken or Rooted devices Cloud based or on premise infrastructure

21 Citrix XenMobile SaaS Minimum of 99 Users for XM MDM/App Edition
Highly available, globally redundant infrastructure Multi-tenancy with secure, dedicated instances No data corruption if one instance goes down No separate fee for dedicated instances Monitoring, analytics and reporting for real-time troubleshooting and optimization application servers Hosted in facilities with a percent availability SLA Service availability 24 hours per day, 7 days per week except for scheduled maintenance Hosting facilities certified under SAS70 Type I & II and ISO27001 Daily backups for one month, plus monthly backups for a minimum of 24 months Automated and manual disaster recovery 24/7/365 incident response Minimum of 99 Users for XM MDM/App Edition Minimum of 300 users for XM Enterprise Edition

22 Citrix Workspace Suite
Yes it is hard keeping track of when to use Capital Letters in the middle of words like XenDesktop and NetScaler and when to use an X to spell WorxHome and when not to use an X like Workspace.

23 Citrix is all All About Mobility
Wherever people are, whatever device they are on, their content (apps and data, personal and corporate) should never leave their side. Security needs to follow the individual across all corporate content and devices they touch. A single solution is needed to meet the constantly changing needs of all individuals regardless of their computing needs, and save IT time and money.

30 Blueprints Design Deploy Manage 2nd Half 2014

31 High End Graphics over a remote protocol NVIDIA K1 and K2

32 Target Audience Remoting High End Graphics
Engineers/Designers/Architects 3D graphics applications such Siemens NX, AutoDesk products, etc. Drive down costs of desktops Mobility Protect intellectual property Specialized Application Users GIS Video and Picture editing MathWorks, specialized simulations Flash based apps, Powerpoint, Google Earth, Office 2013, low end CAD applications that can take advantage of a GPU

33 NVIDIA GRID Cards – K1 and K2
So what did NVIDIA actually do? They developed 2 server cards known as the K1 and K2 cards. I’ve included the URL for the GRID certified servers list above. You need really need to follow that exactly and I would highly recommend you buy the servers with the cards rather than adding them later. Depending on the server vendor, there may be specific nuances such adapter cards, additional power or specific motherboards to enable these cards. As you can see from the screen, the K1 card is the lower end with lots of density and the K2 is the higher end model but for less users. Some servers can have 2 or even 3 of these cards but that is vendor and server model specific so check the GRID Certified Server list. Notice the K in the abbreviation. It stands for Kepler which is the codename for the GPUs in these cards.

34 GPU Profile Latest User Guide for NVIDIA GRID Manager
<Al> So while you have the option to perform a Pass-Thru (1 VM to 1 GPU) mapping, but that will only get you 4 users per K1 or 2 users per K2. While this is the best performance, not everyone needs the same specs… so in comes vGPU or GPU sharing. What you see on the screen is the vGPU math based on the vGPU profile. The GPU card is the first column. The number of GPUs on that card is next. Virtual GPU column is the card profile name. The profiles start with K1 or K2 based on the card. Then the higher the number, the more memory and resolution you can get, but the less desktops per GPU. The lower the number the more desktops you can get, but that equals less RAM and lower resolution. So you have to perform trade off between density and performance. The q is for Quadro which are the application certified profiles. These profiles undergo the same tests as the physical Quadro cards and there is a list of applications that are certified. Good Note: If there is no contention, a user will receive full access to all the GPU CUDA Cores on that GPU. Once there is contention the access to the GPU will be throttled appropriately.

35 Desktop and Server Recording and Auditing

36 Are Log Files the Answer?
What are users really doing on desktops? What are admins doing on servers? When they do something, how do you know? Can you prove it?

37 Not just Windows desktops and servers, UNIX and LINUX also.
Search field to find all users who ran an application name or .exe. View the each session of the users day and see what they did.
