Last week Citrix released their latest XenApp / XenDesktop 7.12 version, what includes many new features, with one in particular, the (re)introduction of the Local Host Cache functionality. The feature to keep your Citrix FMA environment available for new and existing sessions in case of a central site database outage, or even when all the Citrix databases are unavailable.
