From the Confucius dept. In the RES product portfolio you may have come across terms and names such as Subscriber, Subscriber Agent, Workspace Extender etc. and wonder what the heck it all means. While I’ve done my best to document these products and components in the RESpedia, it is time to set the record straight and give you a shortcut to the big picture. Through this article, it is my ambition to give you an easy overview of what each of these items are, and understand the differences. You will find a brief history of the products that eventually led to the development of the VDX product…

From the extended department. If you are new to RES technology, you may or may not have heard about the VDX product that has got everybody’s talking. In short it enables you to run local apps as part of a remote/virtual desktop coming from TS/Citrix/VDI etc. For those of you familiar with Citrix terminology, it’s best described as reverse seamless windows, for which RES Software holds a patent. and I’ve previously created an article here, which describes how to setup a nice demo of VDX.
Recently however, RES has produced a nice short video which explains the concept. You can view this video below or check it out in the VideoVault alongside the 3 new videos which have been added today.
Currently VDX is a part of the RES Workspace Manager. Do keep in mind however, that in RES will launch a stand-alone version of VDX in January 2011, which will enable you use this technology as a stand-alone component.
A new technote has been added to the library. This one takes you through how to set up the RES Workspace Extender, so you can play around with it in you own test/lab environment. The article offers usefull info into how the technology works and takes you step-by-step through setting up a really cool demo on either Terminal Services or citrix, using either a videoclip or an application.
The net result is that you now can run heavy, graphic-intensive apps as part of a centrally managed remote desktop, regardles of the underlying delivery technology.
A buildingblock is available at the end of the article so you can get started quickly using the RES Workspace extender. Read all about it here
