VMware View or XenDesktop…

At work we’re attempting to test out thin clients/xp embbeded devices. We’ve got a couple of test units and we’re trying to figure out which software works the best, VMware View or XenDesktop. We’re trying to use it in a couple of different roles, internally on the corporate network and remotely for offsite users/telecomputing.

We’re having performance issues with View for an application we use, it’s just not running smoothly enough and XenDesktop is a bear to setup, much more complicated than View. At the moment neither piece seems to totally meet the requirements of the POC we’ve setup. We’re having connection issues with XenDesktop, this could be a problem with the way the Provisitoning server is configured and the way the shared disk is configured, I’m not really sure which.

This POC has been ongoing since the middle of December and we haven’t moved very far forward.
