Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Nutanix

As a virtualization guy, I’m used to heard about HCI (Hyper Converged Infrastructure) since a couple of years now. Nutanix is a, if not the, leader in this area and this week took place their European annual event in Nice (France). Organization The event was sold out with more than 2 200 attendees and almost everything has been perfect in terms of organization. For me, the only “painful” point was the security checks at the convention center entrance. For that […]

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Citrix

Announced a few hours age, the 7.14 version is now available and one of the cool feature is to mix license type in the same site.

StoreFront Launcher PowerShell script

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Citrix

I’ve announced it during E2EVC in Sydney: I’ve started a new project on GitHub! This project is based on a PowerShell script running on a client device.

It’ll verify the availability of every URl you have provided in a CSV file and launch the first answering site with the default browser. It’s useful for: Managing a High Availability […]
