After a few years working on old hardware (self made PCs) running VMware ESXi it was getting time to upgrade the lab environment to be able to write blogs about VMware Horizon and Cloud Pod Architecture, as well as doing more advanced blogs on Azure migration scenarios in the future.  I researched a lot, which device could be a good fit to save space in my office, but providing great power for my testings. Finally I decided to go for Intel’s 11th generation of the “Next Unit of Computing”, in short NUC. I bought the Extreme Kit, which provides also possibilities to extend the setup with ..read more

Hi everyone, since the name for Windows Virtual Desktop has been renamed to Azure Virtual Desktop to fit better to the purpose of the product, many of my community folks (and the communities itself) changed their names.  For me it took a while, because I wanted to transform my kind of blogging, video creation stuff into something new.  For that reason I’m super happy that from of today, 01.08.2021, I’m redirecting to my new blog AVDLogix.com.  With this new start I want to take you even more with me through my EUC journey and share even more technical knowledge through differe ..read more
