Hi All, Just wanted to tell you about our next meeting of the North East Ohio SBC Users' Group which will be Monday at 4:45 PM on May 9th, 2005 at the Cuyahoga County Public Library Administration building (2111 Snow Rd Parma, Ohio) and give you some news about Citrix's release of PS 4. PLEASE RSVP: to Matt Lesak, Program Chairman at mailto:mtle@xxxxxxxxxxxx Matt Lesak and Jim Kenzig attended BriForum in Washington DC this month. BriForum was a 2 day technical conference put on by Brian Madden and company that had some of the brightest minds and authors in the Thin Computing community in attendance. Rick Mack of Volante Systems in Australia put on an excellent presentation on Tuning and Optimizing your applications on Terminal Services and we have obtained permission to show this presentation at our meeting. This is an information packed presentation which everyone will get something out of. The second portion of our meeting we have booked Tony Altieri from Appsense Technologies to tell us about their new product performance suite they just released. Appsense will also sponsor the meeting for refreshments . Check out their website at http://www.appsense.com In other news Citrix announced today at strategy day that their version 4 of Presentation server (it would appear that the name Metaframe has been removed from the product) will be available coming up in the second quarter of this year. Read the press release here http://www.citrix.com/English/NE/news/news.asp?newsID=20454 Citrix appears now to be taking the marketing tack of calling the product Citrix Access Suite and Citrix Presentation Server. Rumor has it that Conferencing Manager will die a slow death also as a standalone product and be rolled into the core product. It is really sad to see the MetaFrame name go by the wayside. PLEASE JOIN US!
