VMblog visits the Stratodesk booth during Citrix Synergy 2019 and talks with Hernan Contreras, Sales Director for US and LATAM as well as members of their partner community.
They showcased NoTouch Desktop at their booth including: NoTouch OS, the secure, Linux based, HDX ready operating system that connects to Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops as well as other leading VDI environments, and NoTouch Center, the enterprise grade, browser based administration software that helps IT administrators control, manage, configure and update their endpoints from one central location.
In addition to NoTouch Desktop, they also showcased Citrix Ready workspace hub -the Raspberry Pi based endpoint, in action. Powered and centrally managed by Stratodesk's software, the Citrix Ready workspace hub is the next generation endpoint for Citrix VDI and Workspace IoT.
They also had the LG Thin Client Monitor on display at their booth, and educated customers on the new Liquidware/Stratodesk integration.
VMblog visits the Liquidware booth during Citrix Synergy 2019 to take a look at the new features in FlexApp, Profile Unity and Stratusphere UX.
User experience remains a critical factor for both productivity and employee motivation. Stratusphere UX has in-depth diagnostics and monitoring to troubleshoot but also to assist helpdesks in demonstrating that a user’s new workspace is performing as it should. Due to Stratupshere's baseline capability, you can show a user what they had before and what they now have is better than their previous environment.
ProfileUnity and FlexApp are enabling many workspaces to move to the cloud. By seamlessly moving and managing your users' profiles and layered applications between physical, virtual or cloud your users don't need to know where their actual 'desktop' is, just that they can access it and their applications when they need them. FlexApp enables just in time application delivery based on context awareness, keeping base images to a minimum and saving time and money. With many companies having a 'cloud first' strategy now also means their desktops too.
ProfileUnity and FlexApp both leverage object-based storage without the use of Server Message Blocks (SMB). By saving and hosting profiles and layered applications to object-based storage we are readying organizations for seamless DaaS transitions, providing high availability built in from multi-clouds and overall lowering the cost of storage.

VMBlog speaks with Bitdefender during Citrix Synergy 2019 in Atlanta, GA.
Through its deep Citrix integration, Bitdefender Security for Virtualized Environments enables organizations to deploy consistent security throughout their entire Citrix infrastructure, onto any Windows, Linux, web and SaaS applications or full virtual desktops from any cloud-public, on premises or hybrid - all under a single management console.
Bitdefender HVI was designed to work directly with Citrix's Direct Inspect APIs, perfectly integrating Citrix XenServer to secure any and all virtual workloads. It is an ideal solution to protect XenApp and XenDesktop from threats associated with targeted attacks, while maintaining workload performance and easy management.
Bitdefender Browser Isolation is a perfect fit for Citrix XenApp customers who are publishing browsers, but have not yet found a way to secure them properly. Bitdefender secures browsers isolated via XenApp (now Citrix Virtual Apps).
