Citrix Summit SF 2011 – day 2

While SF is still asleep (or slowly waking up), hereby a quick blogpost on the buzz from the second Citrix Summit day. The last day exclusively for partners and system integrators, as today the Synergy starts, which opens up the event for all clients and users as well.

The second Summit day mostly consisted on Hands-on-Labs reports, with little detailed information, due to the NDA.

With little information found so far, here are some ‘newsflashes’ I tracked down regarding the Citrix Summit:

  • XenDesktop
  • XenApp
    • “Citrix XenApp 6 gets full aero and HDX 3D support. Also combination with client v13 is adding a lot of cool features!”
      eDocs can be found at:
    • “Citrix License server support 170 check-outs per second.”
    • “Cool feature : you can specifity 32bit or 64bit application directory (program files vs program files x86) with policy”
  • Coming soon: Citrix Tools as a Service (TaaS):
    • “Citrix Tools as a Service (TaaS) is coming soon, the future of support.”
  • “I heard that more than 5500 people attend Citrix Synergy which means the largest Synergy so far!”
  • “Cisco wins Citrix Ready Business Solution of the Year”
I’m looking forward to te keynote to start the Synergy part of this event, with probably some new great announcements.
