I work at a University as a senior systems administrator\engineer and take care of classrooms and Labs. I've also built our Microsoft Domain infrastructure and deployed a WatchGuard Next Generation firewall which has kept our Lab and Classroom PCs free from any attack in over three years. I want to now build a SAN based Citrix solution so students can remote into applications they need to study using an easy to use interface from wherever they might be, in the courtyard, at their dorm room, at a local coffee shop, or even in another state visiting their parents on break time. I don't want them to have to drive to campus to use our Labs.
Does anyone have a preference? Some here like MS Remote Desktop because they say they are afraid to learn a new product such as Citrix. I don't however see this as a stumbling block. I was told Citrix will allow students to connect using multiple types of devices.
Any thoughts from anyone would be helpful!
Thanks All !
