Hello San Francisco Bay Area residents!

Please join us at the fourth, jubilee meeting of Bay Area Citrix User Group (BayCUG). BayCUG is an independent community of people who are interested in Citrix technologies, Virtualization and Mobility in general.

This is a great opportunity to come together with your fellow Citrix users to discuss trends, best practices, and the latest technology!

As usual, we will have three exciting sessions:

HDX Insight demo – Configuration and usage (Henrik Johansson, nGenx, Citrix Technology Professional)

This session will show you how to identify ICA session bottlenecks and what the user experience is like now and historically by using the new awesome product called NetScaler Insight Center and HDX Insight.

This will help you identify if the issues are within your environment or on the user side as well as what desktop/session components are affecting the user experience.

This will be a live demo session covering:

  • Initial configuration
  • Usage and how to identify bottlenecks and performance issues
  • Integration into XenDesktop’s Desktop Director
  • Resource impact

Citrix Customer Experience Design Exercise – Optimizing Deployments (Frances Karandy – Sr. Manager, Research Citrix Product Design)

The Product Design Group would like to know how you—as customers, partners, and consultants—stand up your production-ready virtualization environments (desktops or apps). We’ll lead you through a collaborative design exercise to capture:

  • Your typical approach to standing up an environment– What key activities do you do, in what order, and why?
  • Most challenging areas in integrating Ctrix and/or non-Citrix products into an environment.
  • Most valuable opportunities and ideas you would like to see better integration and workflow.

Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) Primer (Dane Young, Entisys Solutions, Citrix Technology Professional)

Dane will cover the basics and how to quickly get up to speed on Microsoft Deployment Toolkit!

During this session, you will learn the basics of the MDT framework, integration with Windows Deployment Services for PXE booting, and the ins and outs of task sequences!  Hopefully, after this session you will never deploy systems manually again!

Please join us at the BayCUG to discuss these topics as well as your ideas over some good beers…
