11Migration 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

22Citrix 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.
23Citrix 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.

33NVIDIA 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.
34GPU 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.Latest User Guide for NVIDIA GRID Manager
