Candy on Microsoft Virtual Desktop/Terminal Server and Citrix
July 26, 2013 - Technical
Candy runs successfully on these platforms.
The advantage to Candy users is that network problems are removed. This is because only a ‘picture’ of the screen is sent to the user’s workstation. Everything else happens on the server or in the server farm.
The advantage to IT management is centralised control of Candy and related data. Additionally, far less network infrastructure is required to run a terminal session than to run data live between the server and user’s desktop.
A disadvantage to users is that Candy tends to be updated at a much slower rate which means that enhancements do not reach users as quickly.
