Likelihood to Recommend

Citrix Workspace

Due to the pandemic and everyone working from home, being able to connect to the office computer from one's home is incredibly crucial.The application works stable and I can recommend it to everyone. The only instance I would not recommend this product is if they are using Linux or MacOS as the program is not made for those operating systems and could cause a few issues.

Unidesk (Discontinued)

Right now, I would advise it to anybody who has 1,500 or fewer users they wish to provide desktops for. I would advise to go with persistent desktops or use a UEM solution like AppSense or RES Workspace Manager when trying the non-persistent desktops. I would suggest that using an AppVirt product like App-V with Unidesk still makes a lot of sense as you can use Shared Content Store Mode and sequence once for many. AppVirt solutions still have value with isolation. I would suggest looking at Turbo browsers for their redirect feature to an sandboxed browser running legacy IE or a browser with Java or Flash (to eliminate security threats related to these running locally on the system). Also, I would suggest looking at Atlantis for deduplicating those desktops and allow them to perform quicker with less storage required. Unidesk by itself is awesome. It really simplifies things. Throw it together with other products and each compliments the other well. Also, Unidesk makes some of those other products more valuable as you're not completely reliant on them like you would be without Unidesk.

Pros

Citrix Workspace

  • It provides you with a secured environment to access your companies' or clients' databases.
  • It gives you easy access to the workspace as long as you have the credentials needed, a working PC, and a stable internet connection.

Unidesk (Discontinued)

  • Creating application layers is easy to do. It's just a matter of installing the applications as you would normally do on a computer.
  • Unidesk's technology isn't sandbox like VMware's ThinApp technology so it works much better and is more compatible with other software.
  • The admin console and technology in general is easy to learn for the administrator while it's transparent to the end users.

Cons

Citrix Workspace

  • Speed- it requires pretty good internet connection, otherwise system gets slow.
  • Interrupt- a lot of times the device gets logged out automatically.
  • Limited setting options- inside the virtual environment, there are [few] options for customization.
Aditya Kumar | TrustRadius Reviewer

Unidesk (Discontinued)

  • Disaster recovery options for the Unidesk solution are not easily accessible or require personalized attention from support.
  • Issues when creating software layers do not always have a obvious fix. Make sure to look for and follow Unidesk's published "recipes."
  • The software/OS layering introduced by Unidesk is not "sanctioned" behavior by Microsoft, and thus you're at the mercy of Unidesk's ability to keep up with widespread changes to operating systems.

Alternatives Considered

Citrix Workspace

On the basis of user experience and productivity, CIitrix Workspace provides a single experience for employee to get work done quickly and efficiently and on the other hand applications like VMware users have to use multiple tool to access their file and apps.On the basis of performance Citrix Workspace delivers the optimum application specific path across available networks and on other hand VMware users see their productivity negatively impacted while waiting for files to load.

Unidesk (Discontinued)

AppVolumes seems to be a lot less mature as a product. It does have some benefits over Unidesk e.g. the fact it doesn't include the OS Layer (image management) side means I can just use it for the app layering piece if I like. I can also deploy my application layers to physical desktops BUT I have had less success compatibility wise with my applications as AppVolumes 'AppStacks'. I believe Unidesk has a better handle on the do's and don'ts, or at least may be a little more honest about them. I also don't enjoy the Console with AppVolumes and while I can use it without the image management or tied into the stack the way Unidesk is...you also lose that image management and need to couple it with another product in some scenarios.FlexApp to me is stronger than AppVolumes. FlexApp is coupled with a profile management solution called ProfileUnity which makes it a more attractive alternative (at least at the time of me posting this). However, I prefer other UEM products at this moment in time. I also value the image management and ease of a single console for all of Virt Desktop management that Unidesk provides.

Return on Investment

Unidesk (Discontinued)

  • Storage density with Unidesk (via the use of OS/application layering) is 60-70% improved over standard persistent one-to-one virtual desktops.
  • Unidesk virtual machines can be deployed in under 10 minutes by a lower tier of technician without the need to "touch" the vCenter hypervisor.
  • Reliable performance across Unidesk virtual workstations. Added desktops/layers does not adversely effect performance nearly as bad as older persistent desktops.
