Thin Client and Virtual Machines Thread, Citrix/TS pricing in Technical; ...
19th May 2009, 09:31 AM #1
What kind of prices should I be expecting for the following:
Citrix Xenapp 'advanced' license
Citrix Access gateway 'standard'
Windows terminal server CAL 2008
As I have varied prices, such as:
Access gateway £37-£45
Terminal Server CAL £2.75-£16
Any help would be hugely appreciated in these budget strapped times!

How many XenApp clients? Unless you are expecting many hundreds of remote connections, you just do not need the Citrix Access Gateway. We do not have any schools with this installed with some major thin clients (600+).
Windows TS CALs about £12-£13 on a SELECT agreement, if you have a specialism, then you can get SELECT pricing or the local authority is bound to be subscribed so SELECT pricing should be OK with yourselves.
You will need to look at MS Server CALs too. If you are converting existing PCs, then you are covered.
You will also need one CAL for every machine that connects including remotely as a CAL will be assigned for up to 90 days. Citrix XenApp is based on concurrency so should not be an issue.
I hope this helps.

XenApp Enterprise comes with Secure Gateway which would negate the need for Access Gateway for the number of clients you will be talking about. I'm not sure if 'Advanced' comes with this though.

Hi Ric, How much more would the 'Enterprise' version cost over the 'Advanced'?

What would you say was the maximum Xenapp Enterprise (including Secure gateway) external connections can cope with?
I have just had a look at Citrix's website and there is a product called 'Xenapp Fundamental's' which allows 75 remote users, do you have any experience of this?

Interesting figures.. can I ask who you've been getting quotes from?

The cheapest quotes all come from SCC, but I think they may have the wrong items - I'm still looking into it at the moment.
