Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops

Virtual desktop infrastructure for application delivery

About Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops

Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops is a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) that enables businesses of all sizes to securely access remote files and documents on a digital workplace from multiple devices. It lets administrators manage mobile workforce, limit user access to specific applications, and receive alerts about potential disruptions.

Features of Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops include remote desktop access, content publishing, session watermarking, policy-based access control, multi-factor authentication, trend analysis, Microsoft Systems Center Operations Manager (SCOM) alerts, and session recording. It allows businesses to secure application delivery and communication processes using Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption capabilities. Administrators can utilize centralized management consoles to manage the entire virtual infrastructure including servers, licenses, applications, and printers, or machine failures, and generate reports on performance, capacity, and server availability.

Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops facilitates integration with various third-party systems such as Microsoft App-V, VMware vSphere, Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), ShareFile, and more. The high-definition experience (HDX) technology allows users to collaborate on tasks, minimizing chances of VDI lag times and latency issues.

Has been a very productive and good learning experience to work with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. I have deployed various versions and editions of the product since XenApp 6+ both in lab/POC as well as in production environments.

Pros

Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops is the leader is user desktop virtualization and desktop as a service (daas) services. It provides the ability for true hybrid architectures when combing on-prem with Citrix Cloud (cloud.com).

Cons

Installation is not supported on the Linux operating system. Would love to see Citrix expand their architecture to Linux as a host operating system for Citrix VAD.

Good, would be better with desktop shortcut integration.

Pros

Once you log in, has easy access across its multiple applications. Has excellent customer support if problems arise.

Cons

I don't like having to open up the Citrix application interface in order to access a particular program shortcut that is already on my desktop. The shortcut should be seamlessly integrated with the user interface.

In short, Citrix cannot please everyone, but the printer issues need to be addressed (you could be the first in the world!) and the internet issues need to be addressed. Our internet speed and signal is as good as it gets in our location, so we know we have the best chance of success there. Please make Citrix more understandable to the people who license its use and pay handsomely to do so. Thank you for making some of the issues transparent and therefore easier to report and fix .

Pros

This software looks good, is simple to use and I understand it. It is also very good at telling you what it is doing, even if it stalls or freezes. It is also easy to reset, which is a good thing as you can manage internet drop outs that may occur that you cannot blame on the operating system. So, in effect, very informative even when it encounters a crisis which is a really good and honest approach. I wish Windows was so honest in its approach.....

Cons

So I should first of all tell you that I use a MacBook Air and run Citrix on this every day. There is an obvious 'culture clash' here I feel. When I use Citrix to open a website that moves or animates in some way, such as www.rolex.com, which it is my job to use, it freezes every time. However, during various investigations with this error it has become apparent that even a still image can cause this. It then requires a total reboot to get rid of the frozen image. This does not happen with Safari when asking for the same image or site to be opened. Annoyingly, there is no error message displayed when this occurs so we never get to understand why. That said, when error messages occur for other reasons, the error message is either 'unknown' or a number that means nothing to the tech company we employ. I'm not trying to contradict my previous comments, this is a comment on the process of using the internet via Citrix to browse websites and not on the day to day running of our retail software which is pretty seamless.
I should also talk about the seeming inability to run six printers in the business in a consistent way, these are ticket, receipt and document printers essential any retail showroom. We spend too much time reinstating these devices, but at least we know what to check every morning and how to deal with it as it happens so frequently! I am aware, however, that printers are the bane of every I.T provider on the planet!
