we have to migrate our single-server Database system. This database is used for Citrix xenApp. Is it possible to stop the database for 1 hour but keep our Citrix Farm online?

From Citrix forum article, and I believe this is correct,

Yes it should be working just fine for a while without the datastore. The servers have the local host cache which contain parts of the datastore. There is no real time limit for how long the datastore can be unavailable anymore. Of course you will not be able to make any changes to the farm.
