My new Metaframe book arrived and I'm trying to read it (800 pages). But who wants to read about metaframe when you're going to Vegas for the weekend. Back to the grind stone - page 27....

Citrix Metaframe XP: Advanced Technical Guide, Including Feature Release 2

It is a bit frustrating that there are NO Citrix MPS 3 books out there. The product has been released since the fall - oh well. I ordered this book!!

Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server 3.0

Citrix Systems Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server 3.0: "Manage applications from a central location and access them from anywhere.
Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server is the easiest way to manage enterprise applications from a central location and access them from anywhere. The foundation of the MetaFrame Access Suite, Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server is the world's most widely deployed presentation server for centrally managing heterogeneous applications and delivering their functionality as a service to workers, wherever they may be."

Versioning / Product Names

The company Citrix (Citrix.com) makes a number of products – there flagship product is MetaFrame Presentation Server 3.0 (MPS). Each of the version is continuations – not a real big change.

Version History
· MetaFrame XP – near end of support lifecycle
· MPS3 – released summer ‘04
· MPS4 – to be released summer ‘05

This begs the big questions….

· Is it worth upgrading from XP to ??? (I guess due to product lifecycle support)
· Is it worth upgrading to MPS3 – or should you just go directly to MPS4 when it is released
· How hard is upgrade
· And of course – wtf does a farm have to do with a computer???

Welcome to MyCtrix

Hi;

I'm blogging my learning of Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server to serve as an easy place for me to store bookmarks and other insights. I'm not sure if anybody else will really care - but fell free to use it.

Cheers,

David
