Deploying Citrix XenDesktop Hosted-shared desktops on Amazon Web Services (AWS) combines the benefits of virtualized application and desktop delivery with the advantages of cloud computig. Building a XenDesktop Hosted-shared desktop (XenApp) farm on AWS creates a Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solution that allows instantaneous application and desktop provisioning. This capability often eases IT’s efforts to cope with workload spikes and business changes such as reorganizations, mergers, and acquisitions.
Delivering XenApp application and desktop services from an AWS cloud is cost-efficient because it’s strictly a “pay-for-what-you-use” model that doesn’t require an up-front investment. Depending on your application stack and system requirements, the price point for delivering application services can be as little as a penny per hour per user , as shown in the “Scalability and Economics of XenApp on Amazon Cloud” whitepaper.
