Welcome to Emory Healthcare's EHC Workspace - login page for our virtual desktop environments
The Emory Healthcare virtual desktop environments (VDT and VDI) can be accessed through EHC Workspace and provide employees secure, easy-to-use access to the applications and data to which they've been given rights.
VDI/RDSH is not for the faint at heart, entire careers are built out of this. It's not fast easy or cheap to say the least. I always tell people, start with RDS and see if that works for you, most likely it will unless you got some crazy use case. Horizon / Citrix are add on top products for that and complex (well sometimes). Only Citrix Receiver for Windows 4.9 LTSR can be installed in a 7.15 VDAs for H264 encoding. This is because both Receiver/Workspace app and the VDA rely on (and are packed with) the same codec library (CtxVideoCodec.dll), and installing Receiver/Workspace app in the VDA will overwrite the dll of the 7.15 VDA with a newer version. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops makes VDI intuitive and affordable and ensures that users have access to the apps they need to remain productive within today’s digital workspaces. Alongside Citrix Workspace, it can ensure the best possible VDI experience within the context of complex multi-device, multi-app workflows.
Currently, Teams on VDI with audio/video (AV) optimization is certified with Windows Virtual Desktop, Citrix, and VMware. Review the information in this section to ensure that you meet all requirements for proper functionality. Platforms certified for Teams. The following platforms have virtual desktop infrastructure solutions for Teams.

- What you'll build
The Quick Start sets up the following:
- A highly available system architecture that spans two Availability Zones. *
- A virtual private cloud (VPC) configured with public and private subnets according to AWS best practices, to provide you with your own virtual network on AWS. *
- An internet gateway to allow access to the internet. *
- In the public subnets, managed NAT gateways to allow outbound internet access for resources in the private subnets. *
- In the public subnets, a Remote Desktop Gateway in an Auto Scaling group to allow inbound Remote Desktop access to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances in public and private subnets. *
- In the private subnets, AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory deployed in both Availability Zones for redundancy. *
- In the private subnets, two Citrix Cloud Connectors (domain-joined Windows servers) running on EC2 instances, deployed in both Availability Zones for redundancy.
- A Windows Server with the Citrix Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA) installed, running on an EC2 instance.
This Quick Start also performs the following in your Citrix Cloud tenant:
- Configures the two Citrix Cloud Connector instances to form a resource location on AWS.
- Creates an AWS hosting connection and resource.
- Creates a machine catalog, and adds the VDA instance to the machine catalog.
- Creates a Delivery Group, including a hosted shared desktop and two sample published applications.
* The template that deploys the Quick Start into an existing VPC skips the tasks marked by asterisks and prompts you for your existing VPC configuration.
