“The Citrix Optimizer is a Windows tool to help Citrix administrators optimize various components in their environment, most notably operating system with Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA). The tool is PowerShell based, but also includes a graphical UI.

Citrix Optimizer can run in three different modes:

Analyze – analyze the current system against a specified template and display any differences
Execute – apply the optimizations from the template
Rollback (available in PowerShell only for Beta release) – revert the optimization changes applied previously”

The chalenge: Two cars on racetrack packed with 100 sensors each streaming live data

In this short video, here from Al Peasland –Head of Technical Partnerships at Red Bull Racing– about the unreal data in real time.
