The Proposed VDI VM in my company will be made available to use by maximum of 100 people from various sources 24x7 (home, internet kiosk and also within office HQ building), User can also access the Citrix StoreFront published by Netscaler VPX gateway from anywhere on the world and during the Disaster Recovery (DR) scenario only 40 users need to use the VDI VM from any PC with internet connection.

So in total:

40 users from anywhere in the world / home
60 users from within the office building

Can anyone please help me which licensing type that I should be getting for the correct XenDesktop deployment http://www.citrix.com/products/xendesktop/how-it-works/licensing.html as per that KB article ?


Option A:

100 x Citrix XenDesktop Enterprise Edition - x1 User/Device License with SA
100 x Premier Support 1 Year

100 x Citrix XenDesktop Enterprise Edition - x1 Concurrent License with SA
100 x Premier Support 1 Year


Option B:

100 x Citrix XenDesktop Enterprise Edition - x1 Concurrent License with SA
100 x Premier Support 1 Year


Thanks.

Its good to go for Option B because concurrent license will help you when you add more users. so that any user can access any app\desktops.

Sekar,

I realize that my company only have fixed number of people (not call center) so one user will always have one Desktop / laptop in the office, plus they can connect to the Office VDI environment from home or their tablet PC, so in this case does the User License is good enough to cover ?



User Licensing
Best when people need dedicated desktop access.
One User
Unlimited Devices
Unlimited connections to virtual desktops and apps

If you are sure that this number (100 users) is not going to change or there are no anticipation of a change in this number in the near future, then per user licensing should be your best option. Since you have no control on the number of devices used, per device licenses is out of the question. But if the number of employees/users change (hiring/firing) and you know that connections simultaneously is around a certain number say x, then your best option would be x number of CCU licenses.
