Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Overview

What is 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.

Enterprise software for virtualization of Apps and Desktops

Its been a great experience over the years and the product keeps maturing over the day and supportability by major cloud providers and hypervisors makes it more favorable for enterprise to adopt the CVAD.

Companies are paying Citrix to debug their software

Fortunately my setup is not as complex so my issues are minimal but my peers in the industry have no shortage of horror stories for me to endure.

Citrix VAD review

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.

Amazing software for your business needs.

This software is great for my line of work and allows all employees to access the our network on our own computer with individual logins. I really enjoy the functions and the capabilities of this software and I believe you will as well. The customer support is amazing and it's definitely worth the money.

Licensing costs are slightly on the higher side and frequent updates will make it tougher for enterprises to perform upgrades on a frequent basis.

Pros

There’s not much to like about this software. It’s a nightmare to troubleshoot since there is no error handling. The product’s documentation is always behind. Citrix rebranded all of their products in hopes that perception would change. It’s just the same crap with a new name.

Cons

Insanely expensive (look at Ericom instead. Best bang for your buck and better designed product overall). Support is not so good. Everything Citrix tries to sell you, the NetScaler will be shoved down your throat.

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.

Pros

Citrix has quite a few benefits to it. I use this system daily and it provides a wide range of access to computers in your office but also remotely. You can add it to one device and then utilize it on multiple devices. It also allows for you to have controlled user access depending who you have on your staff. Each user has a unique ID and password and they can also set up their own layout that displays once you login.

Cons

Depending on your size of your company you may experience the network going down, freezing up or sometimes it just quits.
