With the world moving towards dynamic data centers, many reasons exist for using Provisioning Server to deploy your XenApp workload. In some environments, this is easily accomplished with a straightforward implementation without too much thought or experience, but when your company or client requires baseline metrics based on service-level agreements, enterprise dependencies, throughput limits, or use density, things can get quite complicated. Since Citrix Provisioning Server relies on I/O strategies, proper system sizing and deep implementation design are crucial aspects to the success of the project from an end-user, systems administration, and management perspective.
This session with Thorsten Rood is about the high availability and write-cache strategies for CPS in enterprise environments. These strategies are based on business needs, and you’ll be able to use them to measure the performance of your environment and ensure your project’s overall success. Thorsten will also cover how to customize applications at boot time and how to ensure XenApp application publishing remains bullet-proof and reliable when your server footprint is dynamic and the workload is unpredictable.
