Citrix has announced that, effective immediately, the XenDesktop 4 trade-up offer has been extended to customers who have XenApp Advanced Edition. This is great news for those customers, because, under the terms of the original trade-up offer, XenApp Advanced customers would have had to first upgrade their XenApp licenses to XenApp Enterprise, and then do the trade-up.
The table below shows the pricing grid for the trade-up program, depending on which version of XenApp you currently own, which version of XenDesktop you want to trade up to, whether you’re trading up all of your XenApp licenses, and whether or not your Subscription Advantage is current (click on the graphic to view full-size):
Because the part numbers for the trade-up from XenApp Advanced have not yet been released, customers who want to take advantage of it will need to request a special quote. Two other points to remember:
- If you trade-up 100% of your XenApp licenses, you get two XenDesktop licenses per XenApp license. Otherwise it’s one-for-one.
- The trade-up offer runs through June 30, 2010. And as much as I hate to say this, that date will be here before you know it, so please don’t wait until the last minute!
The on-line trade-up calculator has been updated to include information for XenApp advanced.
