Just a comment on SQL Server:

When there's no real (technical) reason, then I would migrate to at least to SQL Server 2016. There are many improvements (query store, JSON support). Or SQL Server 2017 (graph support).

Especially as the mainstream support for SQL Server 2012 has already ended.

Since Citrix 7.15 LTSR support SQL Server 2017, I would recommend to go with SQL Server 2017 instead of SQL Server 2016. Please find Citrix 7.15 requirements under Database section.

You can upgrade SQL Server directly from SQL Server 2008 R2 (if you have SP3 installed) to SQL Server 2017 via SQL Server installer. SQL Server installer automatically takes care of installation and no scripts required.

I'm not sure whether upgrade from Citrix 6.5 to 7.15 changes your table structures or not and if so, then whether Citrix 7.15 installer takes care of them or not for which I would recommend to check with Citrix support once.
