About speaker

  • Rick Dehlinger
    Principal Solutions Architect at Citrix Systems, Inc.
Regarded by many as one of the founding fathers of the Citrix community, some consider his "Installation and Tuning Tips for Citrix MetaFrame" work a major contributor to the evolution of the Desktop Virtualization landscape, and credit his work for shaping the careers of many in the industry. He joined Citrix in 1998, working in the field as a solution architect through 2005. He then went on to start and sell a couple consulting practices, forge new ground in 'the cloud' with a pioneering Service Provider, and even spent some time in the enterprise storage space before returning to Citrix in 2016. Rick Dehlinger is currently a Principal Solution Architect at Citrix, focused on Google.

About the talk

Topic: IT

Many of the largest public cloud deployments of Citrix technologies run on the innovative mature public cloud infrastructure, Amazon Web Services, and many more enterprises are considering doing the same. This session will provide insight into how you can successfully deploy and manage Citrix technologies on AWS. Topics include the anatomy of a Citrix on AWS solution, recent and upcoming technology enhancements from Citrix and Amazon, and best-of-breed solution design patterns that work. We’ll also cover getting started with Citrix on AWS, gotchas and issues to be aware of, and automation tooling and accelerator programs available to kick-start your implementation. If you’re interested in running Citrix on AWS, you don’t want to miss this session!Note: This session will be available for on-demand viewing post-event on Citrix Synergy TV.

Look around this room. I see so many familiar faces. Curious, how many do you have the experience when you come to a Synergy of 00:04 like a like a family reunions or a high school reunions or something each year. Absolutely with you there. 00:14 I might I'd like hate to admit it, but I was doing the math. This is the twenty-first Synergy that I've been in 00:24 prison. It's ridiculous to think about that. I'll tell you at this point. I'm feeling every one of those years with his saw us with a short person 00:33

on the test because I've had to answer the question once or twice rotator cuff surgery 4 weeks ago snowboarding accident. Yes, it hurts like hell 00:43 But I recover my name is a solution architect on the Strategic alliances team with Citrix. I'm actually 00:54 speaking of guys who've been around the industry little while. I'm I'm fortunate enough to be doing on the stage by mr. Andrew Clomid and it would you 01:03 mind introducing yourself to everyone at 8 before any other competing Partners 01:10

at Citrix off and on since 2008 and doing Citrix stuff out 15 some-odd years. So yeah 01:19 working together. It may be. So anyway, thank everybody for joining us this morning. Hopefully, you've been enjoying the 01:27 conference so far. We we hope to extend that enjoyment give you a little bit more value today as we talked to her and give you a kind of the latest 01:37 skinny on Citrix on a wns. Aw. Aw. Aw. You got any of them to play with me on every 01:46 graduation today? We're going to start a little bit of an introduction. We're going to dig into the different 01:55

AWS Services better leverage underneath the Citrix stock talk about a couple of interesting things that have happened to your recently put that stuff 02:05 into context for you very recently. Some of the different deployment options available. If you're interested in running on particular an app and 02:14 desktop workload on top of AWS. I'm going to step into and and dig into some of the resources that are available to go down this road. Are 02:23 we going to touch on some of the most common obstacles that people bump into on workarounds and then we're going to talk a little bit about some of 02:33

the the new stuff some of the recent announcements of the combat AWS and it come out of Citrix some to join Innovation that we've done. I will talk 02:40 about some of the things that are coming up. I'll loop back around do a quick summary and Route the knowing us who probably are not going to end up 02:49 with time for Q&A, but we will certainly try and if not, we're going to do this to hang around outside afterwards thing. So, feel free to hit us up 02:59 with any questions that you've got on so that would you like to take ticks off so you thank you. So 03:07

why Citrix on AWS? Citrix navy dresses had a pretty long relationship as well. So support with Citrix on AWS 03:16 Faxon 6.5 machine Christian Services summer on 2014 started integrating with us being able to automatically help 03:26 desk tops work with the resources do all this kind of automation. Right? But that's another 03:36 solution that's out there. Right? And this is a Blog article from back when that launched into the from Citrix. It really 03:46 comes down to this is an important space right? There's Amazon workspaces that exist and Citrix and that exists and they have their differentiators 03:55

right? There is reasons why people would choose one solution over the other really in the same kind of way. You know Amazon. Does this a lot right? 04:05 Think about Netflix think about Amazon Prime video. I really like stranger things right the show on Netflix. Awesome show but 04:12 there's also miss maisel. And yeah, I just recently watched fleabag on Amazon Prime video, which is incredible. I may be in that case differentiators, 04:22 right differentiators for the citric Solution on AWS and getting into those we see that is 04:30

Citrix and AWS together within that story for being rude to point out that have resources within minutes and I'm not having to 04:39 provision for Peak within your on-premises environment so much faster deployment Cycles in the machine creation Services integration with AWS 04:49 somewhere on five years. Now that we've been working on that together in the last year has been a whole bunch of stuff. I'm so a lot smarter 04:58 capabilities there again trusted write the maturity of the solutions Citrix has been around for a really long time AWS is the 05:06

player that's been around for the longest in the space. And then with the global infrastructure from AWS, in other regions and availability 05:14 zones that we have and then with Citrix Cloud all the capabilities that it has its Global footprint. So differentiators main point of 05:24 contacts there and the differentiators that we see here. I'm so diving into it'll be a little bit further. I will look 05:33 into some of the features and services that are available from AWS. So how many people in the room are familiar with AWS? Just trying to get a scope 05:43

here? That's actually pretty good number. Okay. So very focused in it. 05:51 Some people may know about Amazon ec2 elastic Cloud compute. That's kind of where you get to your computer instances from storage and so on 06:00 vpcc for the networking side Direct Connect being able to connect on promises to your AWS region into your into 06:09 your own process facilities a list of different Services, write 125 different Services out there. That's a lot right? 06:19 So that's how many people are in nobody to be us how many people are familiar or do things like communicate with satellites 06:28

and do Downstream control of satellites data Communications how many rings do satellite-based kind of things? 06:38 Maybe one or two. Okay, so super small percentage, right? We have services that focus on those kind of things, right? So it goes from your 06:47 car computer infrastructure. They're all the way to very particular services that are going to be super market at least within 06:57 in this world right now. I can go to another conference and then the whole group of the focus on that so hundred twenty-five services and I think from 07:07

this crowd perspective the things that are listed here and Big Blocks are the things that you should probably get more focused on more familiarity 07:15 with so we do have additional training we have classroom trainings AWS Summits. They're all over the globe. They're probably in your 07:23 city. Go check those out there a lot of one fun, but there's also a lot of Education to have it be having them and the free it'll be a certification. 07:33 I just got my AWS Solutions architect Pro extremely hard but Got their Associates check that out and 07:43

Yeah, anyone could be from the initial part of getting familiar with AWS all the way in the very next next pieces there. 07:52 So I noticed an interesting box off to the right of the screen there mister the VMware Cloud on AWS 08:02 AWS session. Yeah, I'm curious. 08:09 Hands go up. Yes. It's been an interesting interesting evolution in the marketplace and you know, they've been obviously been working on this service 08:24 and it's it's been jamming its way along and relatively recently an interesting thing happened. So there was a blog post that came out 08:34

back what I think about the what was the November timeframe completely melted into each other learn 08:43 a good friend of mine. I'm working with and actually went through into the Citrix Receiver location for this stuff. 08:52 And it's it's pretty interesting. I'm curious from your perspective. What what because you've touched out of these as well, right? What are people 09:02 interested in about? What's compelling about that to 11 to get Slimmer inside? So the VMware Cloud I need to do a solution. It is 09:11

AWS is providing bare metal infant has to VMware VM or take side and then deploy is there stack on top of that. So 09:20 NSX visa center Visa and that whole environment right out STD cease and then gives that to our customers. 09:30 So it is a jointly engineering solution. This is something we're unified networking perspective in at storage perspective this a lot of things that 09:39 we've both built it together for the solution, but it is a solution that sold delivered supported by VMware. So, 09:47

you know, we're providing this infrastructure and Ditto from a sales perspective in operation special active that's coming from VMware. 09:57 But you know because of its capability, you know later to networking is a big piece. You could provide Professional Services within this 10:08 environment. You can use the same image on premises and into AWS in this case. I'm so Ford hybrid Cloud environments makes a lot of sense for 10:18 environments where you want to be able to use the same tool stack on premises as well as with an AWS that burst of the cloud or hybrid cloud or 10:28

just having the same tool sets are major pieces of why you want to use VMware Cloud on AWS. That's interesting stuff. And 10:37 what was also really interesting as once we had posted this open the Citrix perspective, you know her if we're not necessarily involved in those 10:47 decisions when a customer is looking at the Amour technology was most people see the Citrix MDM or is he's massive competitors in the marketplace and 10:54 some battles and occasionally the companies will step up and act like 2 year olds in throw darts at each other in the media and stuff. 11:04

So things can get a little bit ridiculous on vacation but was interesting as once this this article came out we started to get him a better feel for 11:13 what kind of Interest was there and what kind of demand there would be for that kind of Technology from our customers and an in kind of a an 11:22 interesting and I'd say very relevant example of companies doing the right thing and listening to what the customers are asking for those that were at 11:30 the keynote may have noticed something kind of interesting. So I'll be on your side right in the middle of artino. 11:39

Kind of crazy. So the the cool thing here. Like I said is that you know, I see this as an instance where 11:50 do big companies set their egos aside for a little bit and actually did the right thing by the customer did the right thing by the customers that we 11:58 had spoken with that are really really interested in doing this. So Citrix, we announced our of our intent to offer Citrix already verified 12:07 type of support for the MC. But actually Citrix supported support for a BNC ISO 12:16

noticed this our intent and I'll tell you we got to look at work to see you talking about 2 to 5 platforms that are moving pretty darn quickly and 12:26 trying to coordinate the two of those together, but especially given the the folks that have been involved in working really hard on this and try to 12:34 make this this relationship happen. I think we got some pretty exciting stuff to look at. Yeah, absolutely. I'm kind of with that with the kind of 12:42 story where you know in this in the solution. We're getting feedback from customers. We're understanding where people want to go with things. We want 12:50

to be from a native perspective. And I think everyone really wants to be customer obsessed with me understand where customers want to in this case 13:00 move to move up the stack with VMware, right and getting that feedback is really important where we see the market going. We want to make sure that 13:08 we're driving up the right way. With that the kind of up to stack terminal using AWS. We like providing 13:16 more than just the computer. Right? We like him providing things that are going further up the stack to make it easier for administrator probably as 13:25

yourself and Engineers, but also for customers to consume eight of the awesomeness really in this case as well be moving up the stack. We want to 13:34 provide more services. We want to provide things where we have AWS directory Services Amazon already asked her if someone recently sex 13:44 If you're unfamiliar with the with these I will start with the ABS directory service. So that is something we provided a native Microsoft active 13:54 directory environment at something with AWS managed. Is it so we can moving up the stock? We don't have to manage that active directory environment, 14:02

but it's a fully native solution. So in a managed AWS environment, we stand that up we do the backups the monitoring the patch all that kind of stuff 14:09 for you. You don't need someone that does that on a day-to-day basis. What we do provide is a network interface elastic network interface that sits 14:19 inside of your BP see it in yourself. So you can put the DNS over you can have everyone at wedding Kate to with active directory machines completely 14:28 native using your remote tools to connect into that. You don't you just start that as a service completely automated thing for for customers 14:37

in the same way with Amazon RDS same kind of story with Microsoft SQL. That's an endpoint. It's in your environment and you can remotely manage that 14:46 instance and with FSX same time story to write but this is particularly for such file shares again native Microsoft environment. 14:56 We went through the secretary verified processing window tricks on RDS in AWS directory service haven't quite got that affects just yet. 15:07 But we went to that verification process because we saw the customers release all of the benefit of this not even just for POC some people just open 15:17

this up really quickly, but in production as well from operations perspective, but even in some cases cost as well and from the Citrix perspective, 15:25 these are just the same types of services that we integrate and leverage for a Technologies anyway, right? So we're talkin to active directory. We're 15:33 talkin to SQL were talking to Windows File shares. So in terms of the support ability of the solution, it is the same technology that 15:42 our customers have been using for years and years what's different about it? Well, they don't have full administrative control at the Active 15:51

Directory. Okay, so they're a couple things you got to pay attention to their same thing with the seagull environmental file servers, but Is all the 15:59 same native tools and everything, right? But they still function the same day and a beautiful part of that is that again? The more 16:08 type of complete managed services that you can consume as up as an organization the more value you can potentially get back out of leveraging cloud 16:17 services, right? Because those things are managed and maintained for you allowing you to focus on the things that are important to your business. 16:27

So going through some of the deployment options and resources available for this 16:37 Citrix virtual apps and desktops on 16:41 top of AWS. Right? Cuz we have the the two different mechanisms. You can either deploy and leverage Citrix Cloud virtual app and Desktop Service 16:51 brokering or you could leverage the traditional does the on-prem or what I've taken to calling customer managed model X when you to play it on 17:01 LTS rscr up when I get up there in the cloud, but it's still you or a partner of yours that's doing the management for you. So try to break 17:11

down in and just do some high-level guidance on which one of the options might makes most sense for customers Here and Now mind you these 17:21 lists or absolutely not exhaustive and there's plenty of room for cross-pollination. If you will between the two button General if you're taking a 17:31 look at virtual apps on desktop, if you want to take a look at it for the types of cases where the managed service Simplicity is his something that's 17:40 a value to you. Also when you're consuming bridge collapse in desktop-as-a-service. You're also getting the continuous innovation, 17:49

right? And for some some organizations in some environments. Continuous innovation that constant change and just automatically get in new features and 17:58 capabilities is a very positive thing. Also, when you start moving workloads into the cloud and you start consuming 18:07 services from the cloud kind of one of the tenants of cloud is that you design things for failure right technology is not infallible 18:16 technology will fail is all of us that are technologist in this world know so it's important that you design services that you deliver 18:25

so they can be a, detective, detective 18:35 is important that you're with your workloads can 18:38 handle a little bit of failure and that's what a lot of those to the services that are delivered from the cloud are built that way right. 18:48 And then the last one I'll point out here is a kind of a guiding point is if you're looking for a built-in cost Management in and capacity control. 18:57 I'm going to come back in touch on that here in a little bit. But then obviously we still support we have a lot of customers that are are running a 19:06

self-managed type of an environment. So there is a Bitcoin or ltsr or Arch emulator for Heelys. So these are missing a great solution 19:15 for environments where you've got some very extensive integration a customization requirements for the environment. There's 19:25 also if you got use cases that have very customized very very special type of user requirements. Hotworx get there. 19:35 Also. We we do occasionally bump into environments where the customer doesn't have an option but to do like a lift and shift type of a scenario move 19:44

things over now tell you I saw it as a technologist who's who's constantly out the front and seeing and feeling in the end even in some cases helping 19:54 create the next ways of innovation the kind of pains me a little bit to see people take the old stuff and just take the old stuff as it is and move it 20:02 up, but there are cases where that that does make sense for some customers in their environment. But one of the bigger things over that we 20:10 keep hearing from customers in there their reasons why they want to hold on to these older types of versions is the whole control aspect. Right. So 20:20

we're as technologist. We're kind of were built on control light. We we like to be able to touch and Olden. We like to be able to take that back call 20:30 when that 911 call comes in. We like to be able to be the hero and answer. So if in those types of scenarios, you know, you do give up a little bit of 20:39 a measure of control and for some people when you got to give up a little bit of control or some of the services you deliver that causes of anxiety 20:47 most social anxiety personal anxiety organizational anxiety. And then finally for organizations that have the 20:54

expertise and the tooling to be able to do their own cost management and capacity management a little bit more. So 21:03 give me a call at your recently. We've got an auto scale feature-set. Now that is available. The autofill feature set is a teacher set that 21:13 comes out of the Citrus clouds delivered Services. It takes the old service that we used to have in place the other smart scale service that we've 21:23 been running for a long time. Haven't seen a lot of attention that's actually going pretty well another week or so. 21:32

Beautiful thing with scales service is it actually really amps things up substantially over some of the older two lengths more brittle tooling that we 21:41 had in place. So it gives us some additional reporting visibility and then director. She's actually go and get a feel for exactly. What's what's going 21:51 on with type of things. The the service is doing I'd also supports things like bursting and send some Dr. And AJ types of scenarios, so it's pretty 22:00 cool pretty powerful feature. But this feature is a feature in component of Citrix cloud and it's really the combination of all the cloud 22:09

services in the way. We were able to bring those together that allows us to deliver them. So that's why it's why it's available there. Bison Ellis 22:19 Hawk step in and start talk a little bit about some of the automation Technologies and stuff. I'm so when think you're going to hear now and and to 22:28 consider when you start talking about working with public Cloud, I'm working with cloud services. I see you got to start thinking a little bit 22:36 differently when you're dealing with services and your deal with apis and get you the opportunity to start managing your infrastructure as code. And 22:43

we're playing a lot of organization to be kind of push that direction that really haven't gone over that line too awfully far but it's a fantastic 22:51 Thing Once you wrap your mind around it and get a feel for what you can do with it. You can actually take and deploy pretty darn complex 22:58 services with the click of a button. The other thing is beautiful about that. Does that has your deployment reproducing those Services you can you can 23:07 pretty easily customize I'm in lot of fun dip and soulmate structure called Cloud 23:17

pretty cool stuff with cloud formation right as the building blocks go to building out this quick start. 23:24 We use confirmation to initiate the V PC build out. So the networking components within 2 availability zones are the subnets all that kind of thing 23:33 to deploy had a cute way to the boy out the easy two instances to have Batman house even to pull out. AWS active directory coupons do that. 23:43 So confirmation being able to deploy out all the AWS components right on top of that. 23:53

So like with the quick start here, we do things where we have in the Powershell script to automate the 24:03 deployment of Citrix resource locations on AWS. So initially be installed the components on the cloud connectors, all the 24:12 prerequisites behind that mean. Net or whatever. It may be and go and then tell machine to install the couch 24:21 connectors and set up a resource location on it on citrus cloud. Basically at the end of all this you're able to go into Citrix workspace and click on 24:31

the video that's lost with this environment and get that desktop resource just so I can automatically if you don't really need to know 24:40 You run this quick start and results you get a desktop pretty cool. Pretty cool way to getting a desktop really easily and all you need to do to get 24:51 started with it having to start scription or trial super easy 24:58 as code and 25:07 you can deploy those things as code. You can reproduce things like best practices and and reference architectures. So the 25:17

reference architectures that actually that is that is we're 25:26 doing a lot of that. In fact, my team inside of Citrix is kind of the front edge of a charge to really build out our reference architecture in some 25:36 Far deeper Technical Training material. But when you start talking about working with cloud services, if you go to someone whose life is his lives in 25:45 the cloud from day one, they don't have some of this historical experience than and perspective is that a lot of us have been around for awhile. Bring 25:55

to the table to start talking about design patterns, right? So what you get this is pretty darn cool cuz you don't you don't really have to know all 26:02 the intricacies of what's inside what you get when you get to the end of this is an architecture and design for a system that matches a best-of-breed 26:11 design patterns. You can also leverage this to do the ground up right? I got nothing other than empty subscriptions and services 26:20 and I would just want to stand something up so I can learn or so I can reverse-engineer. It's actually a fantastic way to learn 26:29

if you have an opportunity to go in and get in touch and play with and dig around and tear apart a system that's already been built. Great way 26:39 actually if I reverse engineering system to to learn about it. I'm so this is been pretty cool. I got that starting point. Then you got another entry 26:49 point that we can do wear if you've already got a VPC in place, if you've already got active directory in place, you've already got all the other 26:57 resources, you need it and you want to actually get into a deployment really quickly. You can start actually part way through right cuz confirmation 27:04

leverages multiple templates that can be nested repeat amongst each other and Cheryl and variables between them. So you can Leverage The the 27:14 Midway starting point or deploy into an existing VPC and Adams direct as a points out on the site. And you can let her see a 27:23 team for production deployment. So we actually a great example of how this stuff can be used in semi creatively. I was glad that we delivered here at 27:33 Cinergy. So the the labs were great time if you take a look at that all we had sought to deliver with this lab is pretty darn comprehensive 27:41

an extensive also is really though the power and leveraging those quick Story the loudest to build this lab and we got some fantastic feedback back 27:51 out of it, but the super cool thing for my perspective. I'm kind of excited about as we go into the rest of this year is we put the energy and effort 28:00 into any way that we built this loud. So it's actually really easy and then even cost-effective for us to reproduce it. So this was the first time 28:07 that this lab and then delivered but now this lab can be reproduced all over the place. So imagine being able to 28:16

do a really deep very extensive integration loud like that fill it up or down to the technical levels above the group that you got brought to 28:26 the table to play ask me a great opportunity for you to learn about the combination of the two technologies how they interact in the systems that they 28:36 build so if you're doing things like user group meeting or you're wanting to do like a learning event for the engineers your environment or something 28:42 like that. This is an option out there. What about 28:51

the other phone 29:01 died? 29:02 So that starts off with again confirmation templates, but building up at foundational AWS components, right? Sauvie PCS on that's all I can stuff. 29:12 So disappointing guide has the delivery controller using Amazon RDS using AWS directory service, but 29:20 this is more of a walk-through not fully automatic. Not fully automated that comes down to the complexity that is required to deploy an environment 29:30 like this. So check out the deployment guide It's a Blog article that we were released this past year, but we won't make it easy for people 29:39

to consume on AWS and this is another way. Awesome. Also another resource before we transition out of this section. I'd like to share is this kind of 29:49 innovative accelerate program that that Citrix and Amazon I put together. I was kind of the goal. This program has to help folks that are are looking 29:58 at evaluating the music the combination of Technologies together or looking for a way to help accelerate their their deployment. I did this 30:07 program you get yourself into it provides access to some of the the expert some of the resources that we've got available. I'm potentially some 30:16

funding in private funding to be able to pull stuff off. So again, that's another place if you're interested in that reach out. Let us know and we'll 30:25 work from there. Now we end up bumping into a lot of customers over there over the time and the other the work that we do there's only comes up a 30:33 pretty common list of challenges, right? Yeah. So from customer feedback right that we get from customers to deploy me. So maybe you're looking at 30:42 going into a PSE or maybe you have this in production today. I'm beautiful things that we found from customer feedback that may be a little bit of a 30:52

stumbling block or just really good information to have when you're going through this process. So today machine Christian Services just an XML file 31:00 that list the ec2 instances that are available that make it out of date right AWS is constantly getting new services and in new ec2 instances in this 31:08 case and find out how to make that change for the new ec2 instances. I'm through the 31:18 change on them CS at one point for dedicated instances. Basically what the volume worker was using for an ec2 instance won't go into the details for 31:27

that one. But check out that article if using dedicated instances EBS volume hydration. So there's a process of moving from an Amazon machine image 31:35 into EBS volumes. I can take some time check out that there for a way to make that process of a bit better to 31:45 hydrate that quicker or before it becomes available within the DDC. Common question, what are the permissions that are needed for machine creation 31:54 services to talk to AWS check out that article there and then we've also noticed that with him and it'll be better. Once you have to pay if you sees 32:03

some people delete those for multitude different reasons. There's not a Colbert Citrix MCS uses the default VPC for the volume to 32:12 volume servicer worker one of those words out to resources. So if that's changed check out that article there 32:22 to pick up our Pace a little bit when I'm very important things that I want to call out on this is a recurring 32:31 mistake that we see over and over his customers start to take on this journey. If you're looking to migrate remove some of your work clothes out of a 32:41

a Datacenter that you owned and managed and maintained or maybe a partner owns and manages an intention. You want are looking to to move to AWS. One 32:50 of the biggest stumbling blocks people end up running into is the network. They forget about the network. So I can't tell you how often we run into 32:59 scenarios where customers also. I think they got the architect for the clothes tested and then he realized 33:07 like 33:13 totally get all hail and try and dig in and figure out every little tidbit what I'm showing here, but I brought this slide up 33:23

onto I want to call out you can kind of see it a little bit from the 33:29 the mix of the brands in the elements that are on the screen there, but citranatal us are networking stacks. You are pretty darn tightly integrated 33:39 and work really really well together and there an integral part of a migration effort. So whether that's leveraging any of the combination of 33:48 connectivity methods that you get out of AWS or also cutting into that some of the Fantastic capabilities. We've got with ATC 33:58

or with asking when even to some of the the the Next Generation kind of the cool new capabilities that we're bringing to the table do not 34:08 forget about this stuff. You're going to have seen a lot more out of this on this topic from Citrix and Amazon is we moved throughout this year. It 34:18 got kind of a dedicated initiative digging into it a little bit of our first item on the list 34:26 may have actually been mentioned in the the keynote earlier. 34:36 Announcement I've made up your ass and coming out in the second half of 2019 is when it's scheduled but AWS Outpost is 34:46

selling Hardware in your data centers and to your facilities. So what that looks like, it's an extension to 34:55 an AWS region 16 is another availability Zone. This is something that is probably pretty important to a lot of people in the crowd. It's great for use 35:05 cases where latency is a concern or maybe you have applications that work with GMAC manufacturing floors. Look at look at look 35:14 look to the news for more information about this but this was announced at least I'm back at our main main event reinvent. 35:24

So that's an important things to talk about. You can come into town the details should I will be after the session to chat about if you want. Another 35:33 thing is the graphic sentences from are made of us. So we've had a long Three with bad Graphics instances ec2 instances in a space the 35:41 G2 G3 and G4 is an ounce into work since I'm private preview, but we also have a large list 35:50 of other gpus available with an AWS. These are the ones that we see is being designed for desktop app workloads to that extent like the G3 comes with 36:00

the Nvidia bfgd workstation licenses. That's the key right there right in the difference between a computer work load on a GT you and a graphics 36:10 workload. So that's where you go to look for a graphics accelerator dancing service 36:20 for instance type coming out snooze for more 36:25 information about this. Part 2 stepping up our Pace here a little bit some of the other enhancements that we brought up here and I'm not going to dive 36:35 into this this first group in super deep the level of detail, but I should point out some of the stuff that we're doing on the networking side. So 36:44

you'll see some pretty extensive integration underneath those features and capabilities like availability for us to do a che 36:53 in upper right of different scenarios. And the way we're doing it is pretty cool by leveraging some of the Native Amazon Services underneath to pull 37:02 it off and provide a real high level of service on that also comes to things like auto-scaling imagine having your your netscaler incidences be able 37:11 to scale up and steal down right alongside. Your application workload has demand goes up and goes down as for things like classic network adapter Plus 37:20

in clock lupus. Recently for 37:29 MCS. So being able to in the past have support for MCS with dedicated instances. We know how to support for dedicated host that helps you comply with 37:39 a third-party licensing requirements also identity access management role-based access and go to the temple details here, but it's essentially us 37:48 being able to rotate the secret Nexus keys for you to get into MCS on AWS and another room and one that's pretty cool is replace disc Fork low 37:58

down a little bit more into detail. My next life. I had some of that I'm going to drop one little lion that we're not going to touch on too much 38:08 better, but there's been a little bit of fun the marketplace here recently that may have people thinking that desktop workloads can't run on AWS Right 38:14 though. I believe that's fun to do run on AWS. There are considerations around that, you know from a Microsoft desktop operating 38:23 system perspective need to look at your license agreement with Microsoft with these things. But from what we seem to customers the dedicated instances 38:32

or dedicated host comply with that and it from my perspective is supported will replace instance 38:41 see a catalog instance and the root ABS 38:51 the volume in the past. Those things were removed. They were terminated and they were thrown away for non-persistent desktop work clothes on a 39:00 dress. So with that we can kind of noticed that MCS wasn't doing 39:10 the process around that wasn't made the most optimized. So what we found is it if you actually just leave the easy to instance there, isn't it stops 39:20

pay the association from the others. There's nothing really, you know from a cost-effective vets in issues are so the 39:29 MCS change here is really to leave the MCS catalog ec2 instance there. The rest of the components are also staying there like in the past the 39:38 volume identity all those kind of components, but 39:47 he's another piece to that definitely another 39:53 enhancement for MCS on AWS and making that process work better for customers good stuff. Morning. The 40:02

music was about to offer 40:12 by looking at in and recognizing how long these two organizations have been working together both thing leaders in the 40:20 field the first public Cloud that you could run Citrix ritual Houston desktops on being a w i s that this type of work late is actually a great that 40:30 it's a natural fit. If we also talked a little bit about the multiple deployment options that are available and the main Direction all kind of take 40:39 you to there being a very forward-thinking type of a person I said, I would definitely strongly consider the Citrus clouds delivered 40:47

Services. They provide a ton of value and I'd also recommend that you consider a move and improve type of a of a strategy for the workload 40:56 versus just taking what you got and moving it up cuz the the hard part And most of this stuff tends to be what goes into your image right in the 41:06 stack inside of your ETA. I'm so that stack you can bring up pretty much straight musi moving. The program is actually pretty straightforward off your 41:16 migraine AWS again, don't forget about your network. But I mean, it seems like a, you know, smack in the forehead kind of a comment but it's pretty 41:25

amazing how many customers we see actually bump into that. I finally a point out some of the tools that we've created. So I mentioned that we got that 41:34 of the quick start templates out there great way to learn the stuff. We've got this lab now that we can we can replicate and bring an recreate the 41:42 experience for for you and your your art audience and also accelerate program on for some of those pieces that do require a little bit of Outreach. 41:50 You can hit us up at AWS certificate. Com or a Citrix at amazon.com getting more information or you'd like to to pursue some of these 42:00

programs also last couple posing points and recorded. Some of the stuff is actually will be in the past here shortly got an opportunity 42:10 to go back. So any of the stuff that you saw you'll actually be able to go and grab this deck. So you don't need to worry about the Catherine pictures 42:20 are screenshots, you know, unless you want and we can give you the star pose or something like that. Are the one 42:28 point in this I'm going to I'm going to make this asked on my behalf and on on Andrews cuz we're very very serious about being here. And our goal is 42:38

to provide the best possible to give you the things that you're looking for. If you got any kind of feedback positive or negative, please please 42:47 please throw it into the session survey does us a massive favor. We learn a lot for him from that and that also get you some points in the the 42:56 crazy game on game. So, you know, if you're playing that you could score some pretty good prizes. So that hung behalf of Citrix and AWS and our 43:06 alliance or thank you offer. Spend the time with us this morning, Joe direct deposit. 43:15
