I’m Always Minded of Public Cloud but Please Respect it.

Respect how #publicclouds are designed to be run and operate, with all the services they run, they can be comparable to an operating system e.g iOS which has services and background services that make your touch screen + FaceID work seamlessly with your mobile apps, but you must always regularly check your mobile app settings e.g turn off options/features so you get the better performance and value lead cost optimisation for examples turning off “background app refresh” meanings reducing energy waste or “mobile data” so your cellular data plan isn’t blown without you realising watching all those videos and movies that autoplay – Lyndon-Jon Martin Nov 2020.

The path to operating from the Citrix Cloud Platform for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops often can appear like your need to climb to the summit of K2, this is purely because for IT its foreseen as another key yet, rapid IT Transformation project to solve a multitude of business and business IT challenges (its different organisation by organisation). I’ve therefore put together a simple blended digital doodle on this very topic highlighting some key learnings, leading practises from the field and my own thoughts and thinking on this very topic.

If you want to go deep or even get started on your own migration project today, then i strongly recommend that you read and review the “Proof of Concept: Automated Configuration Tool” available at –, which covers off a step by step guide from installation to migration of on-premises CVAD configurations to the CVAD Service operating and run in the Citrix Cloud Platform – The following series of TechZone articles list at – will also add value in your pivot to the CVAD Service.

If you have the right subscription access at, then you can also complete the following on-demand eLearning course “eCWS-2014 | Automated Configuration Tool for Virtual Apps and Desktops” –, which took me around 45 minutes to complete.
