We have just announced XenApp & XenDesktop 7.7. One of the key features with this release is something called Zones, and rather than writing a long, detailed blog post, I decided to try something a little different.

Instead, I have opted for a video blog, which will take you–at a high level–through the basic concepts of zoning. As part of the video, I wanted to make sure that we managed expectations (coming from the field I am well aware that we have not always done this).

Zones is a multi-phase approach, so I wanted to make sure everyone understands the capabilities within 7.7.

Hopefully, the video will give you an insight into how we are looking at looking to simplify multi-site environments and help consolidate some of these down into fewer sites and be managed as zones.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them in the blog, any related to roadmap features cannot be answered here so please be mindful of what you ask!

Here is the link to the detailed blog, sorry about the delay
