What is the best way to create a hosted desktop enviroment using Citrix xendesktops/xenapp
Posted on 2010-01-07
I'm new to Virtualization and need to come up with the best solution to move around 80 mobile users onto some sort of share hosted virtual desktops using Xen.
We have a fairly powerful server hosted in a datacenter with lost of bandwidth, running 2 windows 2003 enterprise VM's and a Widows Server 2008 enterprise VM
I wanted to know if there was a way to setup 1 Xen desktop with generic software and share it between the 80 users, instead of creating a separate VM for each user.
I would prefer if the OS on the VM was either XP or window 7 but have been told the best way to achieve this is through a terminal service OS and Xen app. Is this the case?
Also what would be the best Xen product to purchase in order achieve this and are there any good walk through guides / articles on setting up the server to achieve this?
