Citrix PVS Resource Usage Part 1

Some people are saying that PVS is complex.

When people get that part, the complexity is not a bottleneck anymore. But when people understand the […]

Citrix Provisioning Services Design – Part 1

Nowadays installing much software products is not that difficult anymore, however designing the whole environment with software products is still not that easy. Logically a design should be adjusted to the current infrastructure, the requirements and wishes of the organization. So in my opinion a design would never be 100% identical for two different infrastructures. […]

Citrix Provisioning Services; time to let go

Weapon of choice?

Citrix Provisioning Services Failover: Myth Busted!

For a long time if you asked many experts in the field how long it takes for a Provisioning Services (PVS) server to failover, many would have cited an old case study where it took 8 minutes to failover approximately 1500 VMs. This was quite long ago and much has changed over the years so […]
