Learn how to migrate to Citrix Cloud

Ask the Expert!

1 hour - Live Session


The most typical architecture for an on-premises Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops environment is:


The existing setup enables secure remote access to the resources (virtual apps and desktops) hosted in the customer’s on-premises data center to their users (internal or external) via a StoreFront and Citrix Gateway. The users access the setup via the Citrix Workspace app or a browser, from a device of their choice, using the Citrix Gateway URL. The customer’s Active Directory, application data, and use data all reside in the data center.

Desired state options after migration

The CTO of the company wants to have the Citrix management components moved to Citrix Cloud and be managed by Citrix. The workloads are to remain in the on-premises data center. Now the admin must decide where the access control components will reside after the migration.

There are 3 options available to the admins:

1. Move the access layer to Citrix Cloud and utilize the Citrix Gateway service.

    The admin chooses this option when the customer is willing to fully realize the benefits  of the Citrix Workspace. This would be an option if the Gateway was being used exclusively for the CVAD deployment.


2. Retain the on-premises Citrix Gateway and utilize the Citrix Workspace servic

The admin chooses this option when the customer wants to extend the benefits of Citrix Workspace to their end users while retaining control of the Gateway, as it may be used for other services in the customer environment


3. Retain the existing on-premises Gateway and StoreFront combination

The admin chooses this option if they want to keep control of both these components or if end users must continue to access the original Gateway URL to access their resources.
