Citrix XenApp & XenDesktop Platinum Edition – a True Gem? You agree?
Throughout the years there have been countless discussions about the potential added value of the Citrix XenApp and/or XenDesktop Platinum license, and rightfully so since you roughly pay about 1/3 more when compared to an Enterprise license, at least as far as XenApp goes.
First things first, while some might disagree, I think Citrix has done a good job in returning value to the Platinum (and Enterprise) edition, especially throughout the past 2 years or so.
Throughout this post I will primarily focus on Citrix XenApp. It is still the preferred platform by most (at least that’s what everybody keeps telling me) and has the simplest licensing model when purchased separately. I won’t go into the mixing and matching of different Citrix license types and versions etc. or/and the technical requirements to be able to do so. Read this post for more detailed information on the licenses involved. I also won’t discuss license pricing and the different models available — XenDesktop, and XenApp as part of XenDesktop, for example.
