  • If you are concerned with the Citrix EOL/EOM schedule, you might consider switching to Ericom's PowerTerm WebConnect. With a three-tier architecture, PowerTerm WebConnect can support mixed farms containing Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2008 R2 and future versions of Windows as well. So it can actually be easier and more cost-effective to not only choose this solution over Citrix’s in the first place, but even to upgrade an existing XenApp farm to PowerTerm WebConnect than to XenApp 6 or 6.5!

    Ericom also has attractive pricing for Citrix replacement customers.
