Performance of Citrix Presentation Server based on Citrix Provisioning Server
One of the most asked question about Citrix Provisioning Server (formerly known as Ardence OS Streaming is about the performance of the system which are running with a streamed operating system.
One of my customers would like to use (at that time still named) Ardence OS Streaming for their Citrix Presentation Server. Main reasons were to guarantee that all servers (in the same silo) were 100% identical and maintaining and updating the servers becomes easier. Although they really liked the concept they would see practical results about the performance. So during the Proof of Concept were we logically tested much more options and requirements for the environment we did also a comparison load test. In the load test we fired the same scripts on a server installed the traditional physical way and one server based on Ardence OS Streaming.
After all the questions I thought it is good idea to share these results to the community as a reference case, so the performance question can be answered by referring to this practical results. Because the tests are done before the renaming of the product I still will use the same Ardence in stead of Citrix Provisioning Server. Nevertheless there are no changes made to product that will influence the tests the results will be comparable on the new version now called Citrix Provisioning Server.
