Peter Bats and I recently released a blog and associated whitepaper titled “Jumpstarting your XenDesktop Farm in AWS with a CloudFormation Template” in which we introduced a CloudFormation template that can be used to create a small XenDesktop farm for hosted shared desktops.  At the end of the blog, we promised to record a video demonstrating how to use the AWS CloudFormation script.

 That video blog is now available on Citrix TV or YouTube. Our next blog, due out soon, will describe the CloudFormation template used in the video. The template we used is both availability zone- and region-aware. We are currently in the process of getting these Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) replicated to all the regions, so stay tuned!
