I was wondering if anyone has ever worked with a Citrix XenApp-type terminal services for MacOSX? I want to be able to Virtualize MacOSX desktops and workspaces so that our designers can login to the same workspace anywhere they go. XenApp was the best thing I could think of for Windows machines, but I have no idea how to do this for MacOSX. If anyone has best-practices for saved workspaces on MacOSX that can be accessed from anywhere can chime in that would be great!

Why not just use Citrix XenApp? XenApp is available for Mac OS X (see XenApp Plugin for Mac OS X). I believe XenDesktop, Citrix's Desktop Virtualization platform, is also available for Mac OS X.

A call to Citrix's technical sales team could probably get you more detailed information on if their product's fit your use cases as well as what their recommended best practices are.

The original question asks for a way to create a Mac OS X terminal server, for which the only solution I know is Aqua Connect. Citrix allows a Mac client to access a remote Windows desktop or application but does not offer remote Mac OS X desktops. – Joe Carroll May 12 '12 at 14:38

Aqua Connect might be what you are after - it's a Terminal Server for OS X.
