Don’t migrate to another legacy on-premises architecture
When Citrix released Flexible Management Architecture (FMA) in 2011 it ported XenApp 7.x over, effectively leaving XenApp 6.5 customers behind. Today, there is only one Citrix option for XenApp 6.5 customers: Rip-and-replace your existing IMA architecture with FMA. Not happy with the Citrix plan? Alternatively, you can migrate to VMware Horizon App – another expensive rip-and-replace option.
In either scenario, you are looking at 6-9 months of running a PoC, sizing, testing, and then finally deploying to initial users. During that period, you’ll have to spend considerable time and money on additional licenses + components, as well as re-training your IT staff on the new infrastructure.
And you will have migrated to another legacy on-premises solution.
