Xendesktop 7


I want to present some facts for my management to decide whether we need to adopt xendesktop 7 or xendesktop 5.6+xenapp 6.5

Can anyone suggest me some pros and cons from a decision making perspective

Comaprison of XD7 App Edition (the replacement for XenApp basically and not full XenDesktop) vs XenApp 6.5: http://www.shaunritchie.co.uk/xenapp-6-5-vs-xendesktop-7-app-edition

You may also want to review Citrix's own material especially for a less technical and more decision maker perspective. For example the What's New section of XD7: http://www.citrix.com/products/xendesktop/whats-new.html

Also, your needs really help determine which is best. You can give a desktop feel by publishing the desktop of a XenApp 6.5 2008R2 server for example and it works well in most scenarios.

We are doing fresh setup so checking if going to latest product would be better..xd7 is just 3 months old thats the only risk we see
I haven't used XD7 since its release yet so unfortunately I can't speak to if it is buggy or working well. I did use a prerelease version some at Citrix Summit/Synergy and the bugs I saw were pretty minor and mostly cosmetic and were most likely fixed in the release. I didn't test it extensively enough though to really be able to erase any doubts. You may want to check their forums and see what people are saying and see if they have any common major issues.
