ICA/HDX optimization policies are a key feature

Improvements to My Organization

XenApp has helped many of my customers with remote access of applications, access on different platforms.

Valuable Features

ICA/HDX optimization policies.

Room for Improvement

Dependency on server virtualization after v7.x is an issue which I encountered in small environments.

Use of Solution

Three to five years.

Stability Issues

No issues with stability.

Scalability Issues

No issues with scalability.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Seven out of 10.

Previous Solutions

I used different application virtualization products, but I found XenApp to be the best of them.

Initial Setup

Straightforward for up to version 6. After version 7 it became complex.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

It is a bit costly, but enterprise class features come with a cost.

Other Solutions Considered

Thinspace, Propalms, VMware horizon, GO-Global.

Other Advice

Plan wisely for sizing, product is stable if sizing is correct. Try to use standard application for virtualization, non-standard application can lead to memory leakage which can hamper your sizing considerations.
