I need your advice on the following problem:
My client uses a Web app which has ActiveX dependencies so it can only be accessed through Windows.
However, he would like to access it through an iPad.
It seems to me that the only solution is to create a virtual machine running Windows, which the iPad accesses and through that machine I can access the Web app through IE.
I'm been researching and it seems that the best option is to setup a VMware View environment with VMware View Connection Server on the host machine and VMware View Client on the iPad.
Am I correct so far?
The biggest problem is that the solution I'll have to come up with, will have to scale as well. For instance, to have around 100 iPads accessing multiple servers each running multiple Windows virtual machines.
I know this can quickly become quite expensive. Am I in the right direction? As an alternative, does anyone know any cloud based companies that already provide this kind of service?
Thank you for your help.
