TheAppFactory 1902

This is my monthly update on important things in the world of apps, applications, and micro apps. For me, it has always been all about the apps.



Resources


Event May 21 Save the date for Citrix Synergy 2019 in Atlanta, GA. I promise that we'll be unveiling some really cool stuff. Find out more at www.citrixsynergy.com
General Last year Citrix started a project to unify the product portfolio. Yes, this means that names have changed. For example, XenApp is now Citrix Virtual Apps. I wrote an article you can use as a cheat sheet to learn the new names and has some of the background on why. If the product name columns to the left look foreign, then this is your guide.
Virtual Apps and Desktops My teammate in the West, Ben, wrote about toggling between a windowed and full-screen mode in your virtual desktop. He also explains how Citrix hotkeys work in a virtual app or desktop (Citrix Blogs)
SD-WAN Nearly every Citrix solution requires a decent network connection. Because of that, Citrix SD-WAN is possibly the fastest growing product in the portfolio. Check out this case study on why fishermen in Denmark decided to change the way they deployed their network (ebook).
Virtual Apps and Desktops There are three options for keeping your environment on supported versions today: Long Term Service Release, Current Release, or Citrix hosted management plane. The current LTSR came out 6 CRs ago and the list of new features is piling up. How do you decide? Nick Rintalan, Citrix Consulting architect, discusses how to make the decision. Spoiler alert: it is not a technical decision. (Citrix Blogs)
Endpoint Management Apple is changed the way iOS manual enrollment works on their devices. This change had an effect on our Endpoint Management (and all other MDM platforms). Read more about this (Citrix Docs). The same page also has information on TLS 1.0 and 1.1 deprecations that also happened on March 15, 2019.
ShareFile Did you know that the Cloud Success Center has prerequisite lists, implementation checklists, step-by-step configuration guides, webinars? Read (Citrix Blogs) or jump right into the Cloud Success Center (login required). By the way, ShareFile will be known as Content Collaboration going forward.
Cool Federik Brattstig has an insane article on his site (Virtual Brat) describing how he built a rig to combine NVIDIA GRID + VR + Citrix + 90 fps to create what he is calling RemoteVR.
