My career started at the turn of the millennium as an IT helpdesk employee at a large international organization. It was during that time that I first got introduced to and excited about a service called Citrix Metaframe XP (we’re talking a long, long time ago).
Ever since I’ve been working with VDI, SBC, DAAS, RDS… a lot of abbreviations that have one thing in common: It’s about moving desktop management to the cloud (or datacentre).
A virtual desktop is presented to the end-users in a safe way, so they can access the corporate applications from anywhere. Those desktop images can be accessed by all types of devices such as laptops (Windows, Linux or MacOS), thin clients and mobile devices.
While not perfect for every business use case, VDI deployments offer simplified protection and maintenance of business systems and networks. It is built and managed centrally and optimized for operations, updates, and troubleshooting.
With this website I wish to help myself remember IT. Because I’m now above 40 and my head appears to be too small to remember it all. And while I note it down for myself I thought it would be good to share it with the wonderfull EUC community. So this describes my experiences related to Virtual Desktop Infrastructures. I provide links and thoughts to articles that help me when I am setting up or troubleshooting enterprise customer environments.
I hope you’ll enjoy it, let me know if there’s anything I can help you with.
