Fred Donovan from Citrix have updated the whitepaper – Communication Ports Used by Citrix Technologies to version 1.5 (April 2011)

Overview

This document provides an overview of ports that are used by Citrix components and must be considered as part of Virtual Computing architecture, especially if communication traffic traverses network components such as firewalls or proxy servers, where ports must be opened to ensure communication flow.

How to Configure Dazzle for Use with XenApp/XenDesktop and Provisioning Services

Written by Thomas Poppelgaard. Posted in Dazzle, Reciever, XenApp, XenDesktop

I noticed an great Citrix article that Alexander Ervik Johnsen (ervik.as) have pointed to: CTX124932, that i wanna share with you also but i have some thoughts i wanna add to it.

Citrix® Dazzle is the  first self-service “storefront” for enterprise applications. Dazzle  gives corporate employees 24×7 self-service access to a broad array of applications, desktops and content, allowing them to choose exactly what they need, when they need it.

My thoughts:
Citrix® Dazzle is the perfect match with Citrix XenApp & XenDesktop, the article was made, how to best practise implement Citrix® Dazzle in an XenDesktop enviroment. 

Citrix have made an article http://support.citrix.com/proddocs/index.jsp?topic=/dazzle-arran/daz-win-configure-xa-for-dazzle.html, how to “Configure XenApp for the Optimum Dazzle user Experience”,  but i think CTX124932 is also suitable  for configuring Dazzle with XenApp in a Citrix Provisioning Service environment.

Please note that Citrix Dazzle requires Citrix Reciever and the user behaviour is soon changed. 
Citrix release soon Citrix Merchandise 2.0 and Citrix Reciever 2.0, where its possible to distribute a Citrix Reciever without users have to be prompted, the current  Merchandise 1.2 and Citrix Reciever 1.2 requires the users to provide their credentials “first time”, Citrix have listen to the end customers and changed the behavior in the upcoming release.

Thank you for the Blog. Question:- If I have x000 XenDesktop Platinum Licenses which version of XenServer is applied. I have License Server 11.12.1
I can assign ‘XenApp/XenDesktop Platinum’ license or
I can assign ‘Xenserver Standard Per-Socket (2 Required) or\
I can assign ‘Xenserver Enterprise Per-Socket (2 Required)

Based on your Blog I can see the difference between Standard and Enterprise – But what do you get if you have XenDesktop Platinum?

Thank you

Thomas, given your knowledge of NVIDIA GRID and your many blog posts, you might be interested in new research commissioned by NVIDIA, VMware and Dell. According to the new survey/research conducted by IDG on behalf of NVIDIA, VMware and Dell, just under one-quarter of respondents’ organizations (24%) have deployed a virtualized graphics solution, while 19% have deployment plans in the next 1-2 years. Another 22%, while they have no firm plans, have an interest in virtualizing their workstation or graphics user environment.

The purpose of the survey and research was to better understand user experiences and challenges with demanding graphics applications in use today, in addition to deployment plans for virtualized graphics solutions.

Other findings from the survey included:

Eighty percent of respondents agreed that long cycle times to load and save large graphic data sets in virtualized environments impede productivity. Among those who agreed, more than one third (35%) reported it takes an hour or more to load or save a large graphic data set.

Less than half (42%) rate the user experience of their organizations’ graphics applications as excellent or very good. The most important potential capabilities that respondents are looking for in a graphics application include improved security/disaster recovery (69% rating critical/very important), shortened load time (67%) and graphics acceleration (63%).
