Citrix Synergy 2015 Day 2 Keynote Live Blog

The day 2 keynote this year is focused on things that are yet to come.  Traditionally, the first day keynote intermingled the “what’s available now” stuff with the “what’s coming in the next 6, 12, 18, n” months.  By breaking these things up into 2 days, it is a little more clear that what is shown today isn’t readily available, but is more of the direction of Citrix.

Citrix Synergy has returned to Barcelona, Spain.  That means that I will be live blogging the keynote again this year.  Last year in Barcelona and earlier this year in San Francisco, Citrix talked a lot about public/private/personal cloud.  I am looking forward to see som fruition out of their vision.  I also fully expect Mark Templeton to have “one more thing” at the end of the keynote as well.  Stay tuned… Continue reading “Citrix Synergy Barcelona 2012 Keynote Live Blog”

#citrixsynergy End of keynote. Nothing follows.

May 25, 2011, 1:38 pm

#citrixsynergy @guspinto showing Citrix Receiver delivering a Mac desktop via XenDesktop. Gus sucks at Angry Birds!

May 25, 2011, 1:31 pm

#citrixsynergy Citrix Receiver can now deliver Android apps. So, now you can have Android apps on a Windows platform via Receiver.

May 25, 2011, 1:28 pm

#citrixsynergy End of message. But, in Steve Jobs fashion, there is “one” more thing. Although, now there are 2 more things.

May 25, 2011, 1:21 pm

#citrixsynergy OpenStack is being discussed now. Citrix is announcing Project Olympus to bring the power of OpenStack to enterprises. This will allow enterprises to build private cloud environments inside their own datacenter that works just like public cloud environments. This is a joint effort including players like Citrix, Dell, Rackspace, etc.

May 25, 2011, 1:09 pm

#citrixsynergy NetScaler Cloud Bridge helps bridge the gap between your enterprise and public clouds. You can run an app in a public cloud but keep the data in your local data center.

May 25, 2011, 12:59 pm

#citrixsynergy Follow-me data. Dropbox, Box.Net, enterprise data, etc. being synced on multiple devices. This data is stored in an encrypted (probably via XenVault) section of the client. Remote wipe, polices, admin control. This is some pretty sweet stuff.

May 25, 2011, 12:51 pm

#citrixsynergy NetScaler Cloud Gateway is one place to aggregate, orchestrate, and deliver SaaS, Web, and Windows apps. Receiver is a one stop shop for access to your enterprise and SaaS apps.

May 25, 2011, 12:43 pm

#citrixsynergy GoToManage for iPad will be free for a 1-to-1 session. Look for it in the App Store soon!

May 25, 2011, 12:37 pm

#citrixsynergy Brad Peterson showing the new Receiver. Published apps are alive and strong. It isn’t all about VDI or hosted virtual desktops – which is refreshing.

May 25, 2011, 12:31 pm

#citrixsynergy Google is deploying Citrix and Chromebooks internally. How cool is that…

May 25, 2011, 12:28 pm

#citrixsynergy Amit Singh from Google is coming on stage to talk about Chromebook and Citrix Reciver for Web. HTML 5 is the man! No need to download client – Citrix just works from the browser. Brad Peterson is showcasing a Chromebook with Receiver for Web. This is awesome.

May 25, 2011, 12:21 pm

#citrixsynergy XenClient XT is available for extreme security. This message will self destruct in 2 minutes…

May 25, 2011, 12:17 pm

#citrixsynergy Now, Mark is talking about XenClient. XenClient is now supported on more hardware – no more dependence on vPro (although full motion video and 3D will suffer a bit on non vPro).

May 25, 2011, 12:14 pm

#citrixsynergy GoToMeeting with HD faces is available for Beta today! 2 new ads are being shown in the keynote.

May 25, 2011, 12:12 pm

#citrixsynergy “Easier & simpler” lowers TCO and raises TVO. So “Easier & Simpler” is the pivot of an inverse proportion.

May 25, 2011, 12:04 pm

#citrixsynergy There are now 3 “PC”‘s – Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Personal Cloud. Is “Personal Cloud” taking things too far – I think maybe/maybe not. With the consumerization of IT, people are brining their compute environment with them wherever, whenever, on whatever device.

May 25, 2011, 11:58 am

#citrixsynergy Any, any, any is now whatever, whenever, wherever. TCO is being replace by TVO (Total Value of Ownership). TVO makes sense because the value can be more or less than the actual cost of something.

May 25, 2011, 11:49 am

#citrixsynergy on no! More “snack, dine, create” analogies. Although, the new term coined is BYO-3 – which makes sense. A lot of people bring multiple devices (laptop, tablet, phone). Also people are brining their own compute environment too (dropbox, cloud apps, gmail, etc.). Consumerization is alive and kicking in IT. Citrix is embracing this.

May 25, 2011, 11:41 am

#citrixsynergy Mark T “Hyper-V a great platform for XenDesktop”

May 25, 2011, 11:39 am

#citrixsynergy Kaviza is the subject. Complexity is “optional”.

May 25, 2011, 11:38 am

#citrixsynergy we’re going to talk a lot about the cloud. Tomorrow the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) will be presenting.

May 25, 2011, 11:36 am

#citrixsynergy And… wer’e off. Mark T on stage now. Standing room only.

May 25, 2011, 11:30 am
