Citrix farm question

Please explain the core components of a Citrix farm, and what systems you would put in place, in order to support a hundred concurrent users. The Citrix environment should consist of 10 different applications of varying performance criteria.

This will depend on what the applications are so nobody can give you an exact number but here is the ballpark range I would use:

4-5 Citrix Presentation Servers (this is where your testing will be important.  You might be able to get away with 2 servers, or maybe even need more than 5 depending on the apps).

1 dedicated front end Web Interface / Secure Gateway server (only use secure gateway if you will have remote access)

SQL server for the Data Store (you can use an existing sql server if you have one)

I would also put the license server on one of your Presentation servers... even though some will say you need a dedicated server for this.  If you want more detail on this just let me know and I'll rant about why I think it's crazy.
