The good and the bad of Citrix XenDesktop

There is a entertaining discussion on Citrix XenDesktop versus VMware View. Having worked with both, I have my take on it. It is best to know both, both from a marketability and professional side. I like being agnostic when it comes to the hypervisor, compute, storage, or vdi solution. There is value, and let’s face it, it is fun!

VMware View Must Reads!!!

If you need a quick primer on VMware View, you must read VMware View 5 Desktop Virtualization Solutions, by Written by VMware experts Jason Langone and Andre Leibovici, as well as Building End-User Computing Solutions with VMware View, by Mike Laverick and Barry Coombs. The two books, plus the VMware View pdfs have been an immense help in getting our project off the ground. As the Lead on the View implementation, I had to get smart on View quickly, and these two publications have saved the day. Must reads!!!
