I am pleased to announce the availability of the Citrix Cloud Connector ARM and Citrix XenDesktop VDI ARM templates. In a previous blog post, I talked about using the Azure ARM Template to orchestrate your entire Citrix Resource Location. After the post was published, there were quite a few requests for a way to provision just Citrix Cloud Connector or XenDesktop VDI in an existing Azure Resource Group. I have published these new ARM Templates to help  create a Citrix Cloud Connector or XenDesktop VDI in an existing Azure Resource Group.

The Citrix Cloud Connector ARM Template deploys two instances of the Citrix Cloud Connector VM with Availability Set, and configures them with Citrix Resource Location, more information available at Citrix GitHub.

The topology created by deploying Citrix Cloud Connector ARM Template looks like this:

Citrix XenDesktop VDI ARM Template can be used to deploy either the Windows Client VDI or Windows Server VDI (or both) inside an existing Resource Group. The template can then create either Master Image or VDI that can be provisioned with Citrix Cloud XenDesktop Service or XenDesktop Essentials Service. More information available at Citrix GitHub.

The Topology created by deploying Citrix XenDesktop VDI ARM Template looks like this:

We have published these ARM Templates under MIT License. This means you are welcome to fork, customize and republish for your specific needs. We really want this to be a community initiative.
