We're several weeks into our Tech Preview program for Unidesk Layered Images and our connector that pushes the images through Citrix Provisioning Services. The feedback from our first testers has been very positive. Citrix customers with lots of XenApp servers are already seeing how much time (and money) they'll save by patching and updating Windows Server and all of their apps once, instead of once for every silo and vDisk.
But we're also making progress on The Next Big Thing that will revolutionize application management for Windows workspaces: Unidesk Elastic Layering. This new "hot-add" technology attaches our virtual disk layers at user logon to virtual desktops and - in an industry first - individual XenApp sessions. You'll be able to deliver one-off apps to users on-demand based on AD user and group membership and offer fully personalized workspaces, without the overhead of dedicated persistent machines for every user.
Here with a first look demo of Unidesk Elastic Layering attaching apps to a XenApp session is our Chief Solution Architect Ron Oglesby.Unidesk 4.0, Unidesk Elastic Layering, Real-Time App Delivery | Read this post >
We are very excited to announce that Unidesk 4.0 Tech Preview is now available for download! It has been eagerly awaited ever since we announced the new release at Citrix Summit.
In this Tech Preview, you will get a chance to test Unidesk 4.0 with support for Citrix XenApp and integration with Citrix Provisioning Server (PVS).
The new release will support all hypervisors, end user computing platforms, and clouds, but we're starting with Citrix XenApp to bring a new level of efficiency and simplicity to the management of large XenApp environments.
You will now be able to provision all XenApp servers from a single instance of Windows Server and a single instance of any app that only need to be managed once. No matter how many PVS vDisks, silos, delivery groups, and servers you have, patches and updates will only have to be made a single time to your Unidesk app and OS layers. Unidesk and PVS will take care of the rest!Unidesk 4.0, Tech Preview | Read this post >
If you haven't heard about Unidesk's new application layering breakthroughs that will completely change what is possible with Citrix XenApp, then you probably missed one of our most popular webinars, too! The other day, Unidesk Chief Solution Architect Ron Oglesby and Chief Marketing Officer Tom Rose held a webinar on our new capabilities that included a live "First Look" demo by Ron.
Citrix CTPs, EUC evangelists, and customers were completely blown away and asked a ton of questions. For those of you who missed it, here are the Top 5 questions that were asked, Ron's answers, and the video clip of Ron's demo.Citrix XenApp, Unidesk 4.0, Session Containers, Citrix PVS, AppDisk, Webinar FAQs, Unidesk Elastic Layering | Read this post >

Citrix XenApp is trusted infrastructure, used by thousands of enterprises and service providers to remotely deliver Windows apps to any endpoint device. Unidesk is making a major announcement at Citrix Summit in Las Vegas that will be the biggest thing to hit XenApp since it was first introduced as "Winframe" back in the late 1990s. Yes, that big! To set the stage for our announcement and help you understand the incredible value that Unidesk will bring to Citrix customers, here's a quick look at the history of XenApp and the XenApp landscape today.Image Management, Citrix XenApp, application layering, Personalization, Patch Management, Citrix, Unidesk 4.0, Persistent Session | Read this post >
