Centralizing access by means of Terminal services and VDI requires the infrastructure to be as reliable and as fault-tolerant as possible. The Citrix Delivery Center has become a complex set of interacting products; its individual points of failure have increased and need to be analyzed properly as they typically impact user experience. Does it really make a difference to use load balancing hardware solutions instead of classic DNS-based, NLB-based or proprietary fault-tolerance configurations? Does Citrix NetScaler behave different than other solutions or does it matter at all? This session is about to show some “lessons learned” while doing customer-driven HA-projects in the wild, and outlines the respective tasks and advantages of having a vendor-agnostic solution. We’ll also have a look at virtual NetScaler (VPX) technology.
