Overall Satisfaction with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops

We use Citrix as our preferred VDI solution to provide managed desktop to end users. With CItrix you get a complete siolution from Citrix gateways to the Application publishing which makes it easier to manage rather than having seperate thirdpary products, which can be quite challenging to manage and update from time to time.
  • Virtual Apps
  • VDI Solution
  • Printing
  • A single console to manage the environment.
  • The configuration is a bit complicated and we have hired Citrix administrators. But it's a good solution.
  • User profiles need improvement. They could use more stability and more functionality as well as user profile redirection.
  • Apps Publishing
  • Printer redirection and policies.
  • Security
  • Ease of use
  • It has better ROI compared to other similar products available in the market.
  • We need a lot fewer people with different capabilities to manage many third-party products.
  • It has a better security and widely accepted by many corporate organizations.
Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops was our pick because of the low infrastructure requirements. With Vmware, you need compatible hardware to run ESXi and then a machine to run the vCenter Server and free other machines to run horizon view, app, policies, etc which can get expensive and complicated if you are planning to have an on-prem solution.

Do you think Citrix DaaS delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Citrix DaaS's feature set?


Did Citrix DaaS live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Citrix DaaS go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Citrix DaaS again?


Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops are secure and way better than using built-in Microsoft terminal services. I have used other products as well like VMware Horizon View and Hyper-V to provide VDI solutions to the end-user but they lack one thing or the other, whereas Citrix Apps and Desktops solutions cover almost everything as a complete VDI solution.
