Citrix XenDesktop: Product Editions and Licencing

The features included in XenDesktop vary by product edition. There are 3 main licencing models:

  • Per-User, Per-Device - one licence required per user or device (same licence, but whether you are counting users or devices is chosen at install time). Ideal for:
    • Staff in just one department, e.g. admin/finance
    • Rolling out on a room by room basis
  • Concurrent use - once licence used per session in active use. When you log off, the licence is freed. Ideal for:
    • Remote access
    • Flexibility
  • Campus agreement - a whole school licence renewable yearly. Ideal for:
    • Ongoing budgeting
    • Site-wide rollout
