With all the stories around MCS vs PVS etc I wanted to write a blogpost on how Nutanix can help you overcome the issues that you would see in a legacy 3-tier / local disk architecture using Citrix MCS. This is not a PVS vs MCS blogpost but I thought it would be a good idea to show how Nutanix solves the 3 biggest challenges with Citrix MCS.

With the announcement of Citrix supporting Nutanix’s Acropolis Hypervisor in August 2015 we’ve started developing the first integration points for XenDesktop 7.6 FP3 (first supported VDA on AHV) and we started of with phase 1 (and yes, there’s more to come!) which is Citrix Power Management on AHV.
As I was going through cycles to deliver our next Reference Architecture for running Citrix workloads on Nutanix Acropolis hypervisor I realised that I didn’t capture the full steps to run Citrix XenDesktop on Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor so this blogpost is have a workflow ready to make sure that you have all the steps covered to do a successful deployment.
