Optimizing Citrix XenApp for the Virtual Data Center
There is a massive install base of customers on Citrix XenApp with Windows Server 2003 that must move to Citrix XenApp 6.5 with Server 2008 R2 by July 2013. When customers migrate to XenApp 6.5, the majority will virtualize XenApp servers to take advantage of the manageability and consolidation benefits of server virtualization. However, the combination of virtualizing XenApp, upgrading to Windows Server 2008 R2 and shared storage introduces performance issues with provisioning, boot time and application response time for IO bound applications.
In this session, Citrix CTPs Shawn Bass and Jim Moyle will discuss the storage and performance challenges of virtualizing and migrating Citrix XenApp deployments and ways to optimize XenApp for performance and scalability. Shawn will present detailed LoginVSI and ioMeter test results showing how to optimize virtualized Citrix XenApp on Windows Server 2008 R2 to improve provisioning time, boot time, application response time and reduce storage requirements.
