XenApp 6 requires Server 2008 R2.

I think your hardware will work but will be on the minimum spec side.  How much hard drive space does it have?

XenApp 6 has Platinum, Enterprise, and Advanced.  your server meets the specs and exceeds it actually.

All XenApp versions come in Advanced, Enterprise and Platinum licenses.

http://www.citrix.com/site/resources/dynamic/salesdocs/Citrix-XenApp-Comparative-Feature-Matrix.pdf

will give you what pieces and parts all available for the different license levels.

Advanced is minimal, Enterprise gives you more and Platinum gives you lots more.  It all depends on the features and capabilities you need (want).

4GB of RAM for 2008 R2 exceeds specs?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I'm not suggesting that you run the server on 512 MB of RAM, but this server will work for about 15 to 20 users concurrently depending ont he applications that are being used.  Perhaps more users if you are just using applications like office.

2008 R2 is 64bit only which is why I am saying that 4GB of RAM is minimal.
