System requirements for components not covered here (such as Workspace app) are covered in their respective documentation.
For product components and features that you can install on Windows servers, Server Core installations are not supported, unless noted.
Specific recommendations for sizing VMs that deliver desktops and applications cannot be provided because of the complex and dynamic nature of hardware offerings. Every deployment has unique needs. Generally, sizing a VM is based on the hardware and not the user workloads (except for RAM; you need more RAM for applications that consume more). For guidance about VM sizing, refer to the following resources on the Citrix Tech Zone web site:
- Design Decision: The scalability and economics of delivering Citrix DaaS on Azure
- Sizing VDA Instances on Google Cloud Compute Engine
- Reference Architecture: Citrix DaaS - AWS
- Tech Brief: Local Host Cache / High Availability mode for Citrix Desktops-as-a-Service (DaaS)
