I have a new small XenAPP 6.0 farm and explorer the use of published / virtual desktops in the future. I have already build a published desktop using Citrix's recommendation and aware they offer XenDesktop and a "VDI-In-A-Box" solution as well. Here is my question setting up the published desk was good but I find that I also generated more administrative over head.
Creating and maintening the image, seperate server and group policy etc... I'm looking for a simple VDI / published desktop solution that would all me to present a desktop to users with ver low over head but will act like a kiosk. Meaning everything the users changes during there desktop session is not kept. Is there a preconfigure VDI virtaul appliance out there that can do this. I cannot be the only one looking for something list this.
