XenApp (Citrix Virtual Apps) Review

I found the ease of deployment, scalability, and security to be to our benefit when supplying virtual applications to our clients.


What is our primary use case?

Remote workers/branch offices needed quick, reliable access to resources at the Corporate Data Center.

How has it helped my organization?

It has allowed us to provide network/application resources to anyone anywhere, no matter what kind of device the end user had, we were usually able to find a compatible Citrix receiver app.  That gave our user base flexibility to be anywhere and still be productive.

What is most valuable?

I found the ease of deployment, scalability, and security to be to our benefit when supplying virtual applications/resources to our clients.

What needs improvement?

Printing is huge, there are a lot of shortfalls with supporting printing over XenApp.  I know it isn't all a Citrix issue, Microsoft needs to do some work to get printing streamlined.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Very easy to scale, virtual servers can be stood up quickly on your virtual platform using Citrix PVS

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

No previous solution

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
