Solution Hub - Citrix Virtualization on Google Cloud
Welcome to the Solution Hub for Citrix virtualization on Google Cloud! If you, like many customers, have an interest in deploying Citrix virtualization solutions on Google Cloud, then you’ve found the right place to start! You’ve also found the place to come back to as your needs (and the components of the Citrix/Google solution) evolve over time.
This document represents the efforts of a group of people who are committed to your success. We’re using this “Solution Hub” for one express purpose - to share the resources and guidance we feel will help you find success. Think of this hub as a focal point of sorts - as a way to present and curate the resources we believe will help you to be successful.
We’re going to get some of this right, and we’re going to get some of it wrong. Either way, we’d appreciate the opportunity to learn from your feedback! You can start the conversation with an email to our Citrix on Google SME working group. Thank you in advance for allowing us to be part of your journey!
So… where to?
By the time you begin exploring this Solution Hub, you should have a reasonably solid idea what Citrix virtualization is, what Google Cloud is, and why you may want to use them together. If you don’t, this hub is probably one or two clicks deeper than you want to be. If this is you, you may want to start your journey here.
If you’re an engineer or an architect looking for guidance on WHAT you’re going to build, you’ll want to click down into our Design Guidance section. Here you’ll find detailed descriptions of 3 different design patterns (FKA ‘Reference Architectures’) to help you define the architecture of the system you’re building. Next, we get deep into a variety of different considerations for designing the workload - the Citrix VDA’s.
If you’re looking for guidance on HOW to build a Citrix virtualization system on Google Cloud, we’ve got guidance for that too. You can find step by step deployment guidance in the Getting Started section. It provides step by step guidance on how to implement the Cloud Forward design pattern, though the skills you’ll learn can be applied to building your production system when the time comes.
If you’re looking for information on advanced topics such as Migration and Modernization, look no further than the Advanced Concepts section.
Finally, if you’d like to explore more how Citrix on Google Cloud fit together for different use cases, check out the Reference Architectures section.
