Ivanti Environment Manager – Cache Roaming

Cache Roaming, an Environment Manager capability introduced in June 2017, solves poor performance issues experienced by Office 365 users that use Outlook in Cached Exchange mode in XenApp, XenDesktop, or other virtual desktop solutions. Cache Roaming attaches a container to the user’s virtual desktop or session and redirects necessary folders within the user profile into this container. With Cache Roaming, Outlook and OneDrive caches can now roam effortlessly between sessions, enabling organizations to employ the full power of Office 365. Cache Roaming is available in Environment Manager 8.6, 10.0, and 10.1.

Based on feedback from customers who have implemented Cache Roaming, a detailed white paper covering use cases and step-by-step instructions on how to set up Cache Roaming in Environment Manager is now available in the Ivanti Community here.
