Danger, Danger My Server Crashed

We all know the impact a server failure can have on a group of users, but what if that server was a core component of a desktop virtualization solution?  That’s a lot of unhappy users.  Before desktop virtualization, nobody gave a second thought about desktop availability. If a desktop failed, it only impacted a single user and chances are you wouldn’t hear much. However, if a certain server fails in a desktop virtualization environment, that one server could impact 50, 100 or 1,000 users.  I can guarantee one thing, you will hear that many users.

Availability for any desktop virtualization solution means more than VM live migration.  In fact, everyone component must be made highly available. Do you know how to do it for XenDesktop? I know of two people who do: myself and Stefan Drege.  And guess what, we are going to tell you and it won’t take much time.

All you have to do is attend our Citrix Synergy session “SYN222 – Guaranteeing availability and scale for XenApp and XenDesktop deployments“, which will be delivered twice

  1. I understand that gaining this information first-hand is one of the benefits of Synergy. However, for those of us unable to attend…there’s a whitepaper coming, right? 🙂


  2. Had me worried there. 😀 I’ve read the reference architecture and it’s phenomenal. Somehow I missed the implementation guide though, thanks for the link!

    I’ll keep my eyes glued to the Citrix blogs for the webinar. CitrixTV has been very helpful as of late.

    Thanks again Daniel!
