Before you install Integration Broker, you must prepare your Horizon Workspace environment. You must verify that your software is installed and configured correctly.

While you prepare your environment, consider the effect of the following functions on your environment:

Citrix-based applications resource and entitlement synchronization automation happens asynchronously. Based on the scheduled synchronization frequency, the load on the Horizon Workspace server can increase. Resource and entitlement changes can also increase the load on the server.

Launching a Citrix-based application resource on an end-user device is faster when Citrix Receiver is running.

ICA file preparation does not affect performance because it is not computational or memory intensive.

All other operations affect performance in a way that is similar to existing resource types.

Important

Horizon Workspace 1.8 does not install or require installation of any VMware software on Citrix servers.
