Citrix on Azure: 3 wk Proof of Concept

Long View Systems

Enable organizations to evaluate the transition of on-premises VDI deployments safely and confidently to Citrix on Azure through a programmatic approach

Our approach to enabling extending or migrating to Citrix on Azure includes the following work packages:

  1. Preparation for Migration:
  • Discover if Citrix on Azure environment prerequisites are met
  • Assess the existing VDI environment, including application inventories, usage, and consumption
  • Design and Build – review assessment data, determine requirements, and design the Proof-of-Concept environment – either with New Image Templates, or by replicating the existing VDI environment
  1. Configure and Test the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktop Service environment
  • Create the Citrix Cloud account and the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Service
  • Create resource locations and deploy the Citrix Cloud connector
  • Install Citrix VDA (Virtual Delivery Agent) on the VMs
  • Create the machine catalog in the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service
  • Create a Citrix delivery group
  • Add POC users to the Citrix workspace
  • Test the Citrix on Azure deployment using the Citrix Workspace App
  1. Configure and Secure the Citrix environment
  • Configure Citrix App Layering
  • Configure Autoscaling
  • Secure the environment with Conditional Access
  • Configure Profile Management
  • Configure Monitoring & Analytics
