We are a company of 200 employees that is rapidly growing. I work in IT and want to sell to my boss the idea of implementing Citrix in our environment. I am in the initial stages of making a presentation and wanted to ask for experts opinion here. Best answer and opinion will be rewarded max points.

1. Why would I want to implement Citrix? What are the benefits for my employees?

2. What is the difference between XenApp and XenDesktop?

3. Any hardware required to setup the Farm? Can the environment be virtual using VMware ESXi? I heard of the netscaler appliance, but is that hardware required?

4. Is it suitable for a company of 200 employees? We currently run VPN, but how will Citrix XenApp or Xendesktop be more beneficial than VPN?

5. What are VDI's, and will those be needed?
