New Citrix Visio Stencils

Note: These stencils are outdated. Use the latest Citrix Workspace Visio Stencils.

Hopefully by now, you’ve heard of Citrix Project Accelerator. If not, I suggest you take a look at the following blogs:

By spending a little time in the Assess phase, Project Accelerator creates this awesome looking diagram


The truth is, this diagram took many, many, many revisions. We wanted to create something that was easy to follow while providing the most important information people wanted to see, which included IOPS, servers, VMs, storage space, desktop images, infrastructure components, and so much more. It took a few revisions before I had something in Visio that did all of that. Then we gave my diagram to Marta Guerra, a senior designer on the Project Accelerator team. She turned the diagram into something easy to follow and very clean with new images/icons for all of the components. I’m still impressed. I know many of you are too because you’ve asked for the Visio stencils.

Unfortunately, Project Accelerator diagrams aren’t done in Visio, but that didn’t stop us from giving you what you wanted. With the help of Marta, I’ve been able to turn these images into a new set of Citrix Visio Stencils.

Get them here!

  1. Reblogged this on BenchTime and commented:
    Sweet! Daniel Feller has shared some great new information in his latest blog post about the benefits of using the Citrix Project Accelerator. I haven’t personally used it yet, but am hoping to make good use out of some of the tools and resources there for some upcoming design projects at work… And for those tired of using the 2007 version of the Citrix Visio stencils, there’s new ones to be had now as well! Check it all out in Mr. Feller’s post…


  2. The project accelerator is a great tool. I love the diagrams that come out. Would be great to be able to export them to PDF/Print(no problem creating Visios, but PDF would be nice).

    I’m also unable to create a combination to show Pooled VDI for FlexCast with my users. Any thoughts? We are doing Pooled VDI and part Hosted Shared.


  3. Export: stay tuned 🙂
    Pooled VDI: In the future, you will be able to customize it, but that does little good for you now. FlexCast is a design decision that takes into many different aspects of your assess, so there is no one answer. However, you can try the following to help influence it:
    1. Make sure you select ” XenDesktop” and NOT ” XenApp” on the Technical experience question at the beginning.
    2. Do NOT select reduce cost as one of your top 2 business priorities
    3. For the user group, do NOT select high security.
