Deployment Guide For Microsoft Lync 2013 In VDI Environment
With the release of the Feature Pack 1 for Citrix XenDesktop 7.6, we now support audio and video optimization for Microsoft Lync 2013 Client and Server deployments using the Citrix HDX RealTime Optimization Pack for Lync. This level of Lync optimization is unique in the market.
While the optimization pack is the best way to deliver Lync to end-users in most scenarios, XenApp and XenDesktop also provide additional options which should be considered as part of the project planning phase.
These options are:
- Using Citrix HDX RealTime Optimization Pack for Lync
- Using Microsoft Lync 2013 VDI Plugin
- Citrix Generic HDX Delivery
- Citrix Local App Access
- Lync Online and Office 365
This deployment guide discusses all options in detail, provides best practice recommendations and step-by-step installation instructions.
