Several years ago there were numerous products on the market offering a Server Based Computing (SBC) solution. VDI was introduced and even more products became available. However, in the last years many of these products are not here anymore. In the current landscape the big three dominating this market are: Microsoft RDS, VMware Horizon View and Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop. However, now another player is coming to the stage; Systancia. They have already been in the market for years, but were working in a kind of stealth mode in their home country France.
Systancia, an application and desktop virtualization software vendor, is a French corporation recognized for its AppliDis solution. AppliDis has grown rapidly over the past few years and was elected Best VDI Solution by experts in the field in 2014 among the industry's historical players. Now also including France's leading offer in terms of security of access following its acquisition of IPdiva, Systancia expertise has gained international presence since the French Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations (CDC) - now BPI (Banque publique d'investissement) - alongside A plus Finance, became a shareholder of the company.
In this review I’m going to be taking a look at their flagship product, AppliDis. Let’s start with a quick infrastructure overview of the product, before we are going to start the installation.
