I have a new Citrix virtual desktop environment running in AWS, the server are running on general purpose M4 instances at the moment but i noticed the users are using a lot of memory per session. To increase the number of users per server I would like to use R4 instances which have more memory. Just wondering if anyone has used R4 instances for Citrix and if they have ad any issues.

A lot depends on the number of servers, usage patterns and how you resource your XenDesktop.

I would recommend m5.24xlarge and scale up. I like the performance of these new gen M series.
