Post Citrix Synergy / E2Evc Dublin 2016 20 Comments

May and June are very busy with conferences every years, this year was no exception. Attending this kind of event is very important for the kind of work we are doing. Knowing what's happening in the technology world and keeping touch with all the people willing to share their knowledge and experiences have always been very useful to gather 6 months of information in only few days. Citrix Synergy 2016 - Las Vegas First thing first, Citrix Synergy in Las vegas ! As a CTP, Synergy always have a special flavour because I get to know so many things from Citrix my brain is melting for 48hours and I need few days to digest everything :) This year Citrix made several announcement and beside the usual renaming and marketing bullshit, if I had one announcement to keep, that would be the Microsoft thing.

Of course it's not yet publicly said and it will maybe never be ;) Citrix need to make things clear for everyone and give customers and partners the big picture, one day or another. What I read between the line is Citrix and Microsoft announce they will be the only one to deliver Windows 10 in a DaaS mode and only in Azure, it is true indeed, they will be the only one but only for few months. Give some time to Vmware, Oracle or whatever company forced to deliver Windows 2012r2 desktop as a Service because of Microsoft licensing limitation, few anti-trust trial and Windows 365 Windows 10 will be available from everyone, everywhere. Another thing about the Microsoft Citrix thingy to understand is some of Citrix products overlap on Microsoft ones. As Citrix already got rid of many products, I think we will see in the…

... But only this time ! Due to personal reasons (some of you know me personally, so you might know why) I won't be able to to to Citrix Synergy in Barcelona. I'm very disappointed I was so eager to exchange with all of you about different technologies, new versions, features and architectures... My company (Activlan) will be in Synergy, 5 of us will make the trip and will be available to share and exchange with you all. It promise to be a great event, I'll watch everything I can on Synergy live broadcast. My next appearance will at at E2E London 2011, probably presenting Citrix XenApp 6.5 in November 2011. and many other places like, Citrix Expert day in Paris, Recontre des Virtualisations etc...
