Hello there,

I have been asked to look at VDI solutions to compliment our XenApp Environment.
There are a number of solutions out there including XenDesktop. 
I quite like XenDesktop and it is a natural compliment to our Xenapp 
environment .... but i would like to see what other solutions other people may 
have experience of.
We have around 10 000 users running the usual mixed bag of apps. CAD is there , 
but this isnt being considered for the VDI solution.

A buzzword that i keep reading about is "zero client". We have a number of Wyse 
devices and Wyse do indeed provide their own Zero client.
I have also been reading up on other solutions Teradici and a company headed by 
an Ex Wyse chappie .. Pano Logic .. although this looks like a smaller non 
enterprise type of solution.
Does anyone have any comments on VDI solutions including the ones i have 
mentioned ? 

Thanks for your time
