AWS Instance type Citrix

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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
