Citrix Cloud on AWS via Login VSI

I was recently afforded the unique opportunity to collaborate on a project to test capacity out of a Citrix XenApp on AWS deployment. The goal of the project was to independently determine the maximum user density for a few different EC2 instance types running XenApp 7.14.

EC2 instances are on-demand and elastic hosted server resources. Which means that they are provisioned dynamically within a pool of available resources, and with an OS you deploy on top. Amazon provides a variety of templates to easily install Windows, Linux or your other favorite OS. EC2 instances are broken down into a few varieties. They are optimized for storage, memory, compute or graphics. The designation before the name of the instances illustrates their configuration. G3 indicates graphics optimized instance third generation.

The other difference between instance type is the cost. If you are provisioning a 2vCPU 4GB of RAM machine the price per hour would be significantly less than that of a 16vCPU 64GB of RAM machine.

This would allow the customer to match the exact machine size to the purpose of their deployment, and optimize the amount of money they were spending on their hosted application solution.

Utilizing Login VSI’s virtual users I ran a predetermined user count against a Citrix XenApp deployment managed from Citrix Cloud.
