This article applies to XenMobile Cloud deployments only.
The diagrams in this article shows how XenMobile Cloud integrates with your datacenter. The other component integrations, such as ShareFile, Certificate Authority, XenApp and XenDesktop, are available as shown in the preceding core architectures. For details, see Reference Architecture for On-Premises Deployments.
Use of Cloud Connector eliminates the need to set up complex networking or infrastructure configuration, such as VPNs or IPsec tunnels. If you require a micro VPN, you must use an on-premises NetScaler with Cloud Connector. The following figure shows NetScaler Gateway hosted on your site.
In this use case, the figure shows NetScaler Gateway as hosted by Citrix in the cloud environment. Citrix manages the configuration of NetScaler Gateway and ensures that the appliance is running. Micro VPN data passes through Citrix control plane and then passes to the customer's data center or out to the Internet.
In this use case, the figure shows NetScaler Gateway as hosted by the customer in their data center. Customers may already have a NetScaler Gateway that they want to use for this deployment. Data passes directly to the customers' data center. This deployment is recommended for extremely large deployments that require maximum scalability.
Deployments that do not require a VPN connection: XenMobile MDM and Advanced Edition with Local Users only.
