Jumpstarting your XenDesktop Farm in AWS with a CloudFormation Template


Is your XenDesktop Hosted-shared desktop (XenApp) farm in the Cloud? Have you thought about putting it there? If it only took a few hours to create a XenApp farm in the cloud, would you consider cloud service delivery for your apps and desktops?

In case you are new to Amazon Web Services (AWS), you should know that Citrix has recently released a whitepaper and a CloudFormation template  also stored on AWS S3  that can get you up and running with your very own XenApp farm in as little as three hours. This CloudFormation template uses publicly available Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) and snapshots to build a basic farm in an AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). In this way, you can jumpstart a move to cloud delivery. Of course, you need to bring a few things along, like XenDesktop licenses and your applications.
