We are looking to find a way to host our PB C/S application at the web.
Already looking at PB11 and Appeon. Another option could be using Citrix.
What are the advantages of Appeon above Citrix? Or what are the
disadvantages of Citrix?

Hi,

We've been using Citrix for years and it has been working great for us.
I'm currently evaluating migrating the app to PB11 or to PB 10.5 &
Appeon. The reason I'm looking to possibly move away from our older
Citrix is more a cost then Tech or performance. Our current system is
Win 4 Terminal server and Citrix Metaframe 1.8. Needless to say there
are no updates for this old system. If we move to Win Server 2003 and
Citrix Presentation server we need to get a lot of new licenses. You
need a license on the Citrix side per concurrent user, not so bad. We
also have to have 2 licenses for the Microsoft side of things. One for
access to the server, and one for file and print services. That's 2 MS
licenses for EACH user who has access to the system. Needless to say we
have several thousand users, so this will get VERY expensive. If I can
move it to a web app that would probably be a major cost savings. If
your not going to have a lot of users then Citrix probably can be
considered. Otherwise you have to look at the cost of EAServer, Appeon,
development, and compare to the licensing costs of Citrix.
If you do decide to go with Citrix I have one big performance hint.
When you are retrieving a datawindow, especially if it is a very large
datawindow: Turn off redraw for the current window until the retrieve is
complete, then turn it back on. We found this out years ago, and it made
a HUGE difference in retrieve times because Citrix was continually
redraw the screen during the retrieve.

I consulted with our product department and sent a PDF
document. Please check your mailbox.
In my personal simple opinion, this kind product of Citrix
is something like the remote desktop.
You can find the more precise and comprehansive analysis in
the PDF document. We will be very glad to discuss with all
of you.

If you're hosting a PB application in a Citrix/Metaframe environment, you'll
probably get no more than 35-40 concurrent users/sessions. That same app
deployed via Appeon might handle 10 times that number.

Your mileage may vary, of course...
