#Citrix #StoreFront Planning Guide

Ok, this product has caused some headache since it was released. And I must say that this guide is something that Citrix should have release a long time ago… there are so many companies out there struggling with how to deal with Web Interface being faced out and how/what to do with StoreFront!

So enjoy!

    What is the difference between storefront and cloudgateway

    do we have to implement both or one

      That depends on what capabilities you want to provide from your service. Is it purely access to XenApp/XenDesktop hosted services or is it also “Follow-me-Data”, SaaS, Mobile apps etc.?

      If you’re after a replacement of the current Web Interface product that shall provide access to hosted services (XenApp/XenDesktop) primarilly then only StoreFront is needed and is available as a part of your XenApp/XenDesktop license. If you need additional capabilities then you’d go for the Enterprise edition that includes the AppController function, this adds additional capabilities.

      BUT, I’d recommend that you ensure that your business requirements are known and detailed and also if you now or in the future need additional capabilities like MAM, MIM, MDM etc. I’d have a discussion with Citrix on where CloudGateway is going now with the acquisition of Zenprise.
