Citrix DaaS

Virtual desktop infrastructure for application delivery

About Citrix DaaS

Citrix DaaS 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 DaaS 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 DaaS 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.

Another piece of quality software from Citrix

As a whole, it's great stuff. It runs flawlessly for most users on most days.

As a whole, it's great stuff. It runs flawlessly for most users on most days.

Pros

It's very smooth, and runs cleanly when you are using just applications or full virtual desktops on multiple monitors.

Cons

Local devices don't always register correctly within the virtual environment, which can become frustrating for users.

The department was installing a work productivity and document management solution.

Reviewed on 2018/06/11

Pros

We had a site license for the Cirtix Desktop and had purchased maintenance and upgrade protection sogoing to the XenDesktop solution was easy. We implemented a server based access to each of the new programs and all 20 users had the same experience of ease of access. The MS office programs integrated smoothly as well. The local resource demand was minimal so we were able to keep a local mirrored data file that only strengthened our data protection efforts.

Cons

The communication software for the enterprise is Apache. We invoked LDAP thinking it would uniformly connect. We were wrong, We tried several workarounds even going so far as to use the POP3 boxes from the MS Outlook readers. The final connections were a hodgepodge of Apache nataive e-mail containers, LDAP addresses and MS POP3 boxes on some of the PCs. Citrix support was able to isolate the problem with the main Apache program. We did identify a training need and in year three it was all working the way intended. Fortunately no one out of the department was aware of our very inelegant solution.

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.

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.

I have a total of 3 years of experience with Citrix Virtual Apps. and I love to use it because of the security the product is providing.

Pros

As we are working in the financial market and need to secure the finance/money of the customer who is using our application and we also have to deal with banks. So Client gives us the Citrix workspace/ virtual apps to connect their cloud/private servers to deploy the product and maintain them as well. Because Citrix provides us with a virtual private network to access the server and the only authorized person who has a password and multi-factor authentication code can use the server. Due to which the chance of hack is low.

Cons

Sometimes the plugins we are using to connect to the virtual network got crashed. Due to which we have to reinstall and configure the server configuration again.

We can easily host our client application and allow them access remotely on a large scale. It allows all of our users (internal and external) to log in and use their system.

Pros

We use Xendesktop for our hosting platform for our clients. It allows us to run multiple servers/applications from one central location and allow multiple users access to it at once. It is easy to use, quick, great connection, and best of all makes our client lives easier

Cons

There are intermittent connection issues and duplicate account sessions that need to be monitored. Nothing awful
