This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good.

This quote certainly applies to our work as IT professionals. Automation is becoming a very central part of our business.

My Automation Framework was released 2 years ago after attending Aaron Parkers session Hands off my gold image! The blog post is highly recommended.

Since then I’ve spent thousands of hours tuning and testing my Automation Framework for ESXi, Hyper-V, XenServer and KVM.

The first release was in June 2013, and now 2 years later I’m very proud and excited to announce the release of Automation Framework 3.0 and the possiblity to buy it as a standalone product.

Everyone knows that there’s no 10 minutes to XenDesktop or VMware for that matter, it’s simply impossible without Automation.

My Automation Framework now supports Citrix XenDesktop / XenApp, VMware Horizon View and Microsoft RDS. You can deploy almost everything and the only thing you need to specify is the Task Sequence and Computer Name. The rest is handled Automatically.

If you’re working as a consultant you can use the Automation Framework at all your customer sites, there’s no licenses involved.

So in the next bid round for a customer PoC, where all your competitors provide One Solution Only, you give them a Microsoft, VMware and Citrix PoC for the same price! Who do you think is going to win?
