Enable Successful Office 365 Deployments in all Virtualized Environments
For enterprise class performance expected by your end-user community, Cached Exchange Mode (CEM) must be enabled in Outlook. Once CEM is enabled, very large files (OSTs) will need to be persisted between virtual workspace sessions. Doing this with traditional approaches like roaming profiles or Folder Redirection will lead to very long logon times and severe performance issues, often preventing virtual desktop initiatives to be successful. To make matters worse, many of these workarounds are supported by Microsoft in a very limited scenario and on a ‘best effort basis’.
FSLogix addressed this problem with the release of our award winning Profile Container solution, launched at Citrix Synergy 2015.
Starting in July, 2016, a subset of FSLogix Profile Containers is now sold as a separate drop-in module, FSLogix™ Office 365 Container, allowing administrators to take full advantage of our Office 365 support without having remove their existing profile or UEM solution. This new offering is the industry’s first drop-in solution that enables true Cached Exchange Mode for all virtual workspaces using Office 365, and real time search for virtual desktops.
“Once the solution is rolled out to all 5,000 users, productivity gains will equate to 125,000 hours or $7.5 million annually.” - Virtual Desktops Offer Neovia Logistics a New Way to Work
FSLogix Office 365 Container installs in minutes, and allows enterprises to virtualize and persist OST files for users with XenApp/XenDesktop and RDS/RDSH both non-persistent and ‘pooled’ virtual desktop infrastructure. In addition to addressing email and search performance, critical settings for Office 365 such as One Drive For Business, Skype for Business global address list (GAL), and Windows search database will now persist between sessions.
FSLogix Office 365 Container provides:
True Cached Exchange Mode – with patent-pending OST containerization, Outlook on XenApp and XenDesktop can now function and perform as if locally installed on a high performance workstation. Users don’t need to compromise email and calendar performance to adopt strategic initiatives like virtual desktops.

Infrastructure compatibility – works on all major virtual desktop and hosted email solutions, complimenting profile management products traditionally used in virtual workspace environments.
