Citrix XenDesktop vs. VMware Horizon 6 (with View)

Virtual apps and desktops are an obvious option for supporting BYOD, enabling secure remote access, or transforming an organization’s PC refresh strategy. This is especially true for organizations using VMware vSphere for server virtualization, who may turn to VMware Horizon View as part of a single vendor strategy. This approach often backfires, though, as Horizon View’s inadequate solution and lowest common denominator approach to computing impairs the user experience, causes headaches for IT, and fails to meet key business requirements by delivering only basic capabilities to customers.
XenDesktop is the industry leader in desktop and app virtualization delivering the only complete solution mobilizing Windows apps and desktops for any use case. XenDesktop on the unified FMA platform is the only solution that is FIPS-compliant and on the Common Criteria evaluation list to meet the highest security standards of regulated industries.

XenDesktop is the most complete desktop and app virtualization platform.

XenDesktop optimizes user experience in any environment. Horizon 6 (with View) is limited.

XenDesktop simplifies IT support for BYO devices. VMware lacks user self-service.

XenDesktop keeps corporate apps and data secure. VMware Horizon 6 (with View) provides limited security.

XenDesktop makes scalability affordable.
VMware makes you choose between cost and capability.
