The Awingu 5.2.4 maintenance release is now available!
With a proven track record, Awingu is your go-to Citrix alternative!
Awingu is a Unified Workspace that offers a highly secure and audited access to your company files and legacy, web and SaaS applications via HTML5 in any browser, on any device.
We often get the question: ‘how does Awingu compare to Citrix?’ The expectation is a list of features, but the reality is a lot more complex. There is no such thing as ‘Citrix’: they offer many products and bundles, each with their own pricing conditions and technical consequences – which, of course, implies added complexity.
At Awingu, we strive for a very simple setup and model:
In the table below, we have mapped different Citrix products that roughly align with Awingu. From that perspective, Awingu compares best to Citrix Workspace. The price points are, however, completely different.

Whether you are using the Citrix Workspace or bundles (formerly know as XenApp/Xendesktop, now known as Virtual Apps/Virtual Desktops), licensing costs will drastically lower when you use Awingu. Take a look at some of the possible scenarios below!
a greenfield deployment of
CITRIX WORKSPACE BUNDLE*
for 3 years, per concurrent user
*The Citrix Workspace Bundle 2018 (perpetual, concurrent users) has a recommended end-user price of 714€/user. On top, comes a CSS Select (Customer Support Service) of 398€/users (in a 3 year agreement). Over 3 years, that’s a total cost of 1112€ vs. 219€/concurrent users at Awingu.
*The Citrix Workspace Bundle 2018 (perpetual, concurrent users) has a recommended end-user price of 714€/user. On top, comes a CSS Select (Customer Support Service) of 398€/users (in a 3 year agreement). Over 3 years, that’s a total cost of €1.112,- vs. €219,-/concurrent users at Awingu.
a renewal of
CITRIX XENAPP / XENDESKTOP*
for 3 years, per concurrent user
*Now known as Citrix Virtual Apps and Citrix Virtual Desktops. Renewal of perpetual licenses for Virtual Apps and Virtual Desktops in the Premium edition, in which case you’ll still need to purchase Citrix CSS Select. Let’s assume select support is chosen, then over 3 years the recommended price is €401 per concurrent user. Note: in this Citrix scenario, you will still require another solution for File Sync & Share, for the Reverse Proxy, etc., while those come built-in with Awingu.
Awingu is an easy to install and manage solution that minimizes any form of complexity. It leverages on your existing environment and comes as an all-in-one turnkey solution.
Typically, Server Based Computing solutions such as Citrix XenApp leverage Microsoft RDP – as does Awingu, which makes migrating very straightforward. Our Unified Workspace leverages on those standard protocols, which means ‘sliding’ Awingu into an existing SBC environment can happen in a couple of hours.
To do so, follow these 4 easy steps:
Awingu is provided as a Virtual Appliance (Linux based). It can be installed on your choice of cloud: private, hybrid or public. You are always in control of your infrastructure and the whereabouts of your data. You can move from one cloud to the other, without any lock-in.
