What is Citrix Workspace Suite?
In essence, Citrix Workspace Suite is the branding for multiple Citrix products in one. The primary ingredients are XenDesktop Platinum and XenMobile Enterprise. Basically, you’ll receive licensing for XenDesktop, XenApp, Mobile Device Management, ShareFile, Cloud Bridge and Smart Access licensing for the NetScaler, AppDNA, technical support, and more. The concept of this packaging is to provide secure access to all of a user’s data and applications with the highest level of mobility.
For a limited time, Citrix’s Workspace Suite is being launched with the opportunity for some major discounts. At the time this article is being posted, Citrix is offering up to 70 percent off of Workspace Suite. The savings all depend on what you are trading up from and other variables. The discount varies based on currently owned products, license level (Advance, Enterprise, or Platinum), subscription advantage state (active or not), and other factors. I have found that if the wind is blowing from the East, it is a Tuesday morning, and three Major League Baseball games were won by only one run the day before, you can get the most significant discounts. Okay, all kidding aside, my point is that the discount is variable based upon multiple factors. It seems that the ones who will see the most significant discount in the trade-up program are those that currently own XenApp or XenDesktop concurrent licensing. There are other factors to consider like you may be required to trade-up all your existing product license pool and purchase extra licenses. Also, Software Maintenance for the first year is required in the purchase.
