The Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Service trial on Citrix Cloud will help demonstrate the value of the cloud-based platform. Cloud-based means centralized service management and simplified design and deployment of Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops – no matter where they’re deployed. Use this guide to prepare for your Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Service trial.

Observação: To ensure a successful and a great customer experience, Citrix reserves the right to limit trials to a number of participants at one time. Please use the time you have until your trial is approved to prepare.

When you request the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Service trial, you’ll see the button status change to “Trial Requested” on the Citrix Cloud services page. You can see all trials you have requested and their status on the same page.

When your Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Service trial is ready, you’ll be notified by email and the button will change from “Trial Requested” to “Manage”. Before you receive that email, it’s a good idea to start preparing for your trial.

Planejar

We recommend you make five key decisions before starting your Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Service trial.

Step Consideration Complete
1

Resource Locations
This is where your infrastructure resources are kept. They can be hosted on-premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid configuration. How many resource locations will you have and where will they be?

For a comparison, please refer to What Are Resource Locations.

Sample Architecture

The diagram below shows how an on-premises environment would be set up for Citrix Cloud. For the trial, you would just need to build and manage the resource location.

At a high-level, the Citrix Cloud consists of six layers.

Supports each resource location whether hosted on-premises or in the cloud

Step Prerequisite Complete
1,1

Two physical hosts with a minimum of 16 physical cores, 64GB RAM, 500GB HDD, and Citrix Hypervisor, Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware vSphere installed. You should also have an AWS or Azure account set up.


Sim

Não
1,2

Skip this step if you’re deploying to cloud.

If using Hyper-V, the physical host should be managed using SCVMM. If using vSphere, the physical host should be managed using vCenter. Citrix Hypervisor does not require a separate management server.


Sim

Não

Includes components that support the resource location, including the Citrix Cloud Connectors and Microsoft Active Directory domain controllers.

Step Prerequisite Complete
2,1

Ensure that the following supporting infrastructure is in your resource location:

  • Domain Controller – 2008 R2 functional level or higher
  • DNS Server
  • DHCP Server - create a scope with a minimum of 30 IP addresses.

If necessary, create a virtual machine (recommended name DC-01) with Microsoft Server 2012 R2 or Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 (2 vCPU, 4GB RAM, 60GB HDD) to host these roles.


Sim

Não
2,2

Create a virtual machine (recommended name CC-01) with Microsoft Server 2012 R2 or Microsoft Server 2008 R2 (2vCPU, 4GB RAM, 40GB HDD). This machine will be used for the Citrix Cloud Connector.


Sim

Não
Add the connector server to the Microsoft Active Directory forest containing the user accounts that will be used for the trial.
Sim

Não
If using a VMware vCenter self-signed certificate, the certificate needs to be added to the Citrix Cloud Connector. For more information, please refer to VMware and Virtual Machine Management.
Sim

Não
If using a Hyper-V and System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM), the SCVMM Console must be installed on the Citrix Cloud Connector.
Sim

Não
The Citrix Cloud Connector requires outbound port 443 to be open with access to the Internet. The Citrix Cloud Connector supports connection to the Internet via a web proxy server. However, that web proxy must work with SSL/TLS encrypted communication. Both the installer and the service itself need connections to Citrix Cloud. For more information, please refer to the “Configuring for a Web Proxy” section of Citrix Cloud Connector Technical Details.
