Citrix: Provisioning XenApp & XenDesktop Workloads in Azure US Government

I am pleased to announce preview support in Citrix Cloud XenApp and XenDesktop service to provision VDAs on Azure US Government cloud. This allows Citrix administrators to quickly deploy and manage XenApp and XenDesktop workloads in Azure Government Cloud using the same familiar Machine Creation Services (MCS) interface currently available for various other worldwide Azure regions.

Operating in six government-only data center regions, Azure Gov cloud is Level 5 DoD approved and is exclusively meant to serve the needs of U.S. federal, state, local and tribal governments – a sector where Citrix has historically been a strong leader in providing secure IT solutions.

Provisioning VDAs in Azure Gov Cloud consists of two steps:

  • First you establish a connection between Citrix Cloud XenApp and XenDesktop service and your Azure US Gov subscription by creating Host Connection and defining Hosting Resources.
  • Second step is to create VDAs using the established connection and resources using Citrix Machine Creation Services (MCS).


  • Entitlement to XenApp and XenDesktop service within Citrix Cloud.
  • An Azure US Government Subscription.
  • An account which is a member of the Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) associated with your subscription, which is also a co-administrator/owner of the subscription. Please visit blog Demystifying Azure AD Authentication to learn more about Azure AD and member accounts.
  • A Resource Location in Azure US Government cloud having a virtual network and subnet(s) in your preferred Azure Gov region with connectivity to an AD controller and a pair of Citrix Cloud Connector VMs joined to AD domain.
