Citrix: Leverage SCOM to Monitor Citrix VDAs on Microsoft Azure

Organizations are constantly expanding their existing on-premises infrastructure to meet growing demand. They need solutions that are flexible and scalable. The most economical solution to achieve this expansion is a hybrid environment — a combination of the on-premises environment along with a cloud solution like Microsoft Azure. This approach allows organizations to scale up or down with the additional freedom to decide if their applications must run on-premises or in the cloud based on the security, performance and availability requirements.

Typically, the expenses of running an organization are either capital (CapEx) or operational (OpEx). CapEx refers to costs incurred on major purchases of servers and other infrastructure, typically running into thousands of dollars. OpEx on the other hand is a smaller expense running into hundreds of dollars, incurred in running and maintaining infrastructure such as power, floor space, storage, etc. With a hybrid set up the organization, moves away from a traditional CapEx model (buy the hardware and depreciate it over time) to the OpEx model (use a shared cloud infrastructure and pay as you use it). The hybrid model combines the best of both CapEx and OpEx through shared resources.

Let’s consider the case of a hybrid environment where the user has deployed Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop on-premises and some or all the VDAs in the cloud (Azure). This set up facilitates high scalability and flexibility; the user can add or remove VDAs quickly as per requirements and available budget.
