Free Load balancing for VMware View with Citrix Netscaler VPX Express

A load balancer for VMware View is not a requirement in a VMware View infrastructure with less than 2000 users. Even when there are multiple VMware View Connection servers for high availability, a single VMware View Connection server can handle up to 2000 connections so it’s not a big deal that the sessions are not evenly balanced. You do however want to have multiple VMware View Connection servers for high availability and to be able to access multiple VMware View Connection servers from a single point of access. A load balancer provides that functionality but is often expensive and gives additional functionality not needed for smaller deployments, like SSL Offloading. There is however a free “Enterprise-ready” load balancer available from Citrix: Netscaler VPX Express. There is a 5 Mbit throughput limit, but that is not an issue and in this article I explain why.

DISCALAIMER: I’m not a netscaler or “load-balancing” expert nor am I a networking guru. I’ve researched and tested the described solution and it works. I’ve not tested this solution with a large amount of users (yet). If you think information in this article is incorrect or if you think you know a better configuration or solution, please let me know.
