Login VSI Blueprint for Citrix Lifecycle Management
In May this year shortly before Citrix Synergy I wrote a post about Citrix Lifecycle Management and how excited we are at Login VSI to support this important initiative with a blueprint. Then I experienced the buzz at Synergy on the show floor and during the keynote. Since then, Citrix has been polishing the new product for an even greater experience giving me the opportunity to work with experts throughout the company on our blueprint.
So why did Login VSI create a blueprint for XenApp and XenDesktop? Simple. When building these environments either onsite or in the cloud you want to make sure you are delivering the best performance to your end users. This is where the goals of Citrix and Login VSI perfectly align. Citrix is now giving you the opportunity to configure and build these environments in a few mouse clicks. And Login VSI supports this with a load test that is simple and easy to set up.
The Login VSI blueprint creates a standalone installation of XenDesktop. It builds a XenDesktop Server with a SQL Server Express database, XenDesktop Controller, Citrix Studio, Storefront and a Citrix License Server. The Windows Server will include the Virtual Desktop Agent (VDA) which may be configured for shared desktops or server VDI. The final optional step of this blueprint is to configure a NetScaler Gateway to provide secure remote access to XenDesktop. Login VSI will be installed to execute performance tests after deployment.
