Another great blog : Virtualizing XenApp Hosted Shared Desktops on Hyper-V

Thanks a lot for this blog post!

“My latest adventure into density testing for Citrix solutions centers on XenApp (XA) Hosted Shared desktops.

It is designed to provide a locked-down, streamlined, and standardized environment with a core set of applications, making it ideally suited for task workers where personalization is less of a focus.
