o ensure a delightful user experience with Microsoft Office 365 cloud services, IT professionals should become familiar with the Office 365 Network Connectivity Principles. But how do these principles apply when virtualizing Office 365? Let’s look at how Citrix SD-WAN can help organizations using Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (CVAD) follow Microsoft’s guidance and keep their users happy. One key recommendation in the Office 365 Network Connectivity Principles is to minimize latency between Office 365 applications and the Microsoft cloud. Because distance is usually the main contributor to latency, the Principles advise steering trusted, latency-sensitive Office 365 traffic to the Microsoft cloud in as direct a manner as possible. Citrix SD-WAN uses Microsoft REST APIs to identify and categorize the different types of Office 365 traffic. Then, traffic in the Optimize category (and, if you want, the Allow category) is steered to a nearby Front Door (point of presence) using proximate DNS for geolocation. DEREK THORSLUND READ MORE
