[THIN] Re: Fwd: DABCC NEWS FLASH - Microsoft Video on next Version of Terminal Services

I think the seamless function is nifty - but it doesn't go into how to
load balance?  I assume you can have multiple hosts configured in the
MSI?  Anybody know if it will be able to handle managing the app load?  
 
 
 
Thanks!

Doug, 
 
Great points! The other thing to consider is that there are two or three
other products out already that add seamless and or published apps to TS
and they have not hurt Citrix to date.........

I agree with you Steve!   Yah, the new TS stuff is very impressive and
it will cut in to some of the business Citrix picks as some customers
will say, "Is TS good enough?"   

 

But, some want a product that will completely round out the TS
experience and supply killer management, security and control around the
protocol.  This is where Citrix comes in to the picture.  I think it
will be like an Oracle deal, I mean, people buy Oracle because they NEED
the best but they settle for MS SQL because it is good enough.  (Until
SQL 2005!)  

 

I also agree with Steve's comments about some of this stuff shipping in
2007 and some of it is going to be further down the road.  As we have
always said, Citrix is years ahead of Microsoft so it will be
interesting what Presentation Server will be doing in 2007 and beyond.
But then it comes back to the question, "Do we need that or not, is TS
good enough to supply us remote access and access to applications that
are bandwidth intensive?"  This is the important question and this
cannot be answered until 2007.     

 

Of course, you must not just look at Microsoft for competition to
Citrix.  What about the Blade PC, VMware Ace and/or SoftGrid
applications?  They all cut in to the value-add that SBC brings to you.
I guess it is time to reassess the market, or will be in 2007.... ;)

> Buh bye Citrix

 

I don't necessarily agree, Citrix is a lot more than publish apps. I
haven't seen the video, but I suspect that MS's version has a number of
limitations with things such as client version supported. Also, if this
is a 2007 product then I don't expect Citrix's customer base to wait
until then, and, Citirx is not sitting still !!!

                        09/21/2005 - 

                        Microsoft released a killer video that shows off
the next version of Terminal Services!!  Check out this video interview
with Tad Brockway, Microsoft's Terminal Services Group Program Manager.

want to use it.  He even talks a bit about Longhorn's Remote Programs
(Project RAIL, Remote Application Integrated Locally) and the new HTTPS
Gateway for RDP.
