Cloud Workspace Solutions: A 1st look at Citrix Cloud

The workspace world is moving to the Cloud or at least making moves to do so. Citrix like others also offers a Cloud solution for your workspace. Citrix partnered with Microsoft to offer Cloud services to customer. In this blog I will talk you through Citrix XenApp Essentials, one of the offerings offered by Citrix from Microsoft Azure.

ArchitectureFirst let’s take a look at the architecture. There are several architectural option to pick from but XenApp Essentials is setup a certain way. For a different setup you need to select a different offering.

In the architecture you see that in the Citrix Cloud you will be offered three components;

  • StoreFront
  • NetScaler Gateway
  • Delivery Controller

One requirement for the Citrix XenApp Essentials implementation is that you bring your Microsoft Azure subscription. Within the Azure environment you need to have the Azure AD setup. The complete requirements are found right here. Select the Citrix XenApp Essentials for the Azure marketplace and follow the procedure. At one point you will link your subscription. Doing so will automatically deploy connectors in your Azure environment. These connectors are the proxies between the Citrix Cloud and Microsoft Azure.

CommunicationAs everything is Cloud based communication is key but it has to be secure. You don’t want to open up your Microsoft Azure environment to some hacker. This is why the connector is installed and is the only one talking with the Citrix Cloud.
