Citrix Profile Management

This allows remote workers great flexibility. You can setup working profiles that are tailored to the end users' needs to assist them in being more productive. This also allows you to view idle sessions to see how productive your remote end users are. You can set timers to only allow access during certain times of day. You can also set auto log off for sessions.

  • If you are on a budget, this is one heck of a tool for the price (including the ~$200/year for the Pro subscription).
  • If you are OK with maintaining and updating open source tools, this is a great tool.
  • If you are afraid of the Linux command line or live in a Windows-centric world, this might not be the tool for you.
  • If you can't stand things occasionally not working, this is probably not a good fit.

It's open source. Your mileage may vary. Sometimes the provided documentation is beyond frustrating, other times it's right on the mark.

Alternatives Considered

Citrix Profile Management

We decided to use Citrix UPM because it was included in our XenDesktop purchase. There was no additional cost for us to do so. It extends the features of Microsoft Roaming Profiles.

SolarWinds does when Observium can do but for a much larger price tag. That is what the decision came down to.
