Citrix: UPS Load Balancing in XenApp and XenDesktop 7.9

Several decades ago, the idea of the paperless office was introduced to the business world. Since that time, we have made great strides toward digitizing documents, forms and other necessary papers. We’ve also seen the printer lose its spot in business as we’ve made this transition. Or have we?

You most likely still have at least one – if not multiple – printers to manage. And chances are you are using printers in a Citrix XenApp or XenDesktop environment to assign network-based printers to users via policies. You’re probably also running into scalability issues as more printing is being required by regulations, expansions and other reasons.

Traditionally, Citrix has supported individual instances of the Citrix Universal Print Server (UPS), leaving any HA configurations to be handled by Windows clustering, or NetScaler for more complicated mechanisms. You could have multiple Universal Print Servers in an environment; however, each printer policy assignment could only contain a single Universal Print Server for each printer queue.

With the recent release of Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop version 7.9 comes a brand-new feature to the existing Citrix UPS component: Print Server Load Balancing. In addition to Universal Print Server Load Balancing, improvements for increased print job scalability have been made to better serve large scale printing environments. This new feature along with the expanded scalability support provide enterprise with a more robust and effective printing solution.
