[THIN] Re: Anyone using Application virtualization inside a Citrix/TS session?

Great advice Steve. Interesting that you didn't mention Thinapp. Is
there a reason for that?

Cheers,
Jeremy.

We have done it for many years primarily with SoftGrid, now Microsoft
App-V.
At this point for use in a Citrix farm I would suggest testing the
Citrix
streaming solution. Earlier version were lacking but recently they have
worked on adding inter "Bubble" communications and are overcoming some
of
the limitations of App-V in the process.

I believe it is included with the Enterprise version of XenApp,
definitely
in Platinum......

The short version has been from our experience to install the simple
apps
that present no issues and have no real integration requirements into
the
base OS and then stream the rest that require isolation, frequent
patches,
weird integration requirements, etc.


Again, I recommend trying the Citrix solution first because it is built
in
to the product and has minimal infrastructure requirements. If it
doesn't
work then you can progress onto App-V or other solutions but they will
have
additional cost and complexity.......

Looking to test this for our Citrix farm in the near future. My
objective is to sequence most apps we use on our farm to make the
actual Citrix server nothing more than an OS and place for the
virtualized apps to run.  What do you use? Why did you choose/stick
with this product?  I know Citrix has their own app streaming in
XA5.0, but don't you have to run Enterprise or Platinum editions to
get this functionality?  Anyone use App-V for Terminal Services? Is
this better/worse solution than Citrix? Other products I should try
evaluating that do this would also be welcome.
