Often times I’m called in to perform a health check of a VMware Horizon environment due to a performance or operational issue. These issues make the environment unstable and effect user productivity. There are various things we can do in the environment to optimize the persistent or non-persistent virtual desktops, but first we need to make sure the virtual desktop infrastructure is configured properly.
Proper configuration entails proper server sizing. More often than not, these servers are not sized properly. Under-sizing causes performance issues and over-sizing wastes resources.
This year’s annual Citrix Synergy conference took place in sunny Orlando, FL at the end of May. The event never disappoints and once again indicates that it’s going to be an exciting year for Citrix customers!
The VMware Horizon Access Point greatly reduces the amount of resources needed for the redundant or non-redundant Horizon Environment.
Previously when deploying Security Server, a single Security Server needed to be sized as a Connection Server which is 4vCPU and 12GB of RAM. If you combine that with the Connection Server that the Security Server is paired with, the Connection Server is once again 4vCPU and 12GB of RAM. If this was a redundant environment your Connection Server and Security Server infrastructure tallies up to 24vCPU and 72Gb of RAM (2 Internal Connection Servers, 2 External Connection Servers and 2 Security Servers all sized at 4vCPU and 12GB of RAM).
Making the decision to incorporate cloud computing into your IT strategy is easy. Building the infrastructure to support it, on the other hand, is not.
Fortunately, you don’t have to.
Top cloud service providers like Lewan Technology make it possible to quickly reap the benefits of cloud computing without the time and costs of deploying physical infrastructure. In addition, select managed services should be available to fill capacity or capability gaps in managing IT environments in the cloud and/or on premise with a single support center.

We’ve all experienced the frustration of clicking Print and the document never actually printing. Your first assumption is probably that the printer is broken. This may be the case, but the job might not even be getting to the printer in the first place.
Here's how to determine if your printer needs service or if there is another issue causing it not to print.
Are you experiencing slow logons for your Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop environments? Is it slow even though it’s running on the latest greatest hardware and the environment is brand new?
The culprit is likely a misconfigured Profile Management solution.
Lewan’s Configuration-as-a-Service (CaaS) offering provides process-oriented operational support to take care of the things that you don't want to do yourself.
If you’re an “IT Guy” (or Gal!), you’ve probably been here before…
