Introducing The End User Computing Podcast

Introducing The End User Computing Podcast

Over the last several years, many of us in the industry have discussed the need for community driven End User Computing podcasts focusing on virtualization topics for people designing, deploying, and using Citrix, Microsoft, VMware and surrounding†technologies. I am excited to share that this month, two new Podcasts are being launched! First, a warm congratulations to Jarian Gibson and Andy Morgan on the successful launch of their Podcast, Frontline Chatter. Here’s to many years of continued success! Next, allow me to introduce the End User Computing Podcast!

How to get Fraps working with Citrix XenApp 7.5 & Login VSI Graphics Framework

How to get Fraps working with Citrix XenApp 7.5 & Login VSI Graphics Framework

This is one of my many series of how to scale test applications using Login VSI Graphics Framework.

If you are interested in trying out the new Graphics Framework from LoginVSI Click here to register for the public beta.

LoginVSI GFX requires you to have Fraps installed on your either VDI or XenApp server.

To get Fraps working correctly, you might run into the issue I have been having. UAC will not allow it to run or if you have UAC disable, you still get a UAC prompt.

This article describes how to get Fraps working in a multisession environment Microsoft Remote Desktop Services 2012R2, Citrix XenApp 7.5 with Login VSI Graphics Framework.

NVIDIA Quadro K6000 – new GPU in town for HDX3D

NVIDIA is about to release a new Quadro K6000 GPU to the market. This GPU is more powerfull than the K5000 GPU. The GPU was unveiled at SIGGRAPH 2013.

This GPU is not a GRID GPU where you can share the GPU’s for multiple virtual machines. The Quadro K6000 is a perfect GPU if you want to build a physical XenApp or XenDesktop hosted app server with either Windows Server 2008R2 or Windows Server 2012 and share the K6000 to multiple users that connects to the server.

The GPU have totally 2880 CUDA cores and 12GB memory, compared to the K5000 the K5000 have 1536 CUDA cores and 4GB memory.

The K6000 is the most powerfull GPU coming soon

About the NVIDIA Quadro K6000

The NVIDIA Quadro K6000 graphics card is the ultimate expression of NVIDIA’s expertise in professional graphics, empowering artists, designers, and engineers to realize their biggest visions. It combines 12 GB of memory, 2880 NVIDIA CUDA® parallel processing cores, accelerated double precision computation, plus the ability to drive up to four ultra-high-resolution displays or projectors. This makes the Quadro K6000 the superior choice to bring your largest and most complex projects to life
