Everyone’s talking about it and it seems like everyone is doing it… well, at least it seems like everyone else is doing it. A lot of people are saying they’re doing it. Although to be honest, you have to wonder if they’re really doing it or if they’re just saying they’re doing it. (Or maybe everyone else is just assuming they’re doing it? I dunno.. they just seem so cool. How can they not be doing it?? They have to be!)

Of course the ones who are doing it aren’t even sure if they’re doing it right. It seems awkward to them. All they can say is, “well, this is supposed to be really great, so I guess we’ll keep doing it. Maybe it will get better?”

Those who aren’t doing it have been getting ready to do it for a long time. And they’re so excited that frankly if an opportunity comes along to do it–even if it’s not the “right” or “perfect” opportunity–they’re probably going to just do it do get it over with. I mean the first one is just throwaway practice anyway, right? The next one will be perfect!

Of course years later we’ll all look back and laugh. Some of us won’t believe how wrong we were doing it. Some won’t believe that we thought we were doing it when we weren’t. All will agree that it got better.

But what did we know. We were just getting started. It was all new and exciting.

The Citrix® Reference Architecture for Multi-tenant Desktop as a Service presents guidance for Citrix Service Provider partners in the process of designing their new generation of Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) hosted services. DaaS and SaaS services leverage the Microsoft® Service Provider License Agreement (SPLA) and Citrix Service Provider (CSP) licensing programs to deliver Microsoft Windows® applications and desktops on a pay-as-you-go basis to small and medium businesses. This reference architecture is for service providers that will be managing a multi-tenant application and desktop hosted delivery service rather than an outsourced “IT as a Service” datacenter where the end tenant is managing their own resources…

A Discussion about Desktop as a Service, #VDI and Terminal Services: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly? #DaaS #XenApp

Desktop as a Service is not VDI in the cloud, nor is it XenApp/RDS in the cloud.  Those are products and marketing terms.  Whew, there, I said it…
…Overall there are many different desktop virtualization models to consider, but I want to focus on the relationship of the big three for this service provider centric post; Terminal Services (aka: RDS, Hosted Shared Desktop, or Session-based Virtualization), VDI and Desktop as a Service…
