A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by 10Zig to do a review of their newest and latest thin client, the 10Zig 5818v WE8 Thin Client and as you may (or may not) know me, I’m always curious to see what’s new in modern days technology.
For all XenApp admins and consultants out there Project Avalon will bring a big change as we are used to having XenApp servers running on the (what seemed to be) everlasting Citrix Independent Management Architecture and we’re heading to Citrix FlexCast Management Architecture (already included in XenDesktop at this moment) and will be included in the Citrix Excalibur Architecture.
Yesterday Barry Schiffer posted a new blog titled Citrix NetScaler Access Gateway What’s the real amount of ICA proxy users you can handle? which is a result of conversations he had with a couple of great minds of this industry and basically he’s doing some research on how many users your remote access device can handle and what kind of certificate you’re using.
Last week I attended the Citrix Partner Exchange 2012, it’s an event held by Citrix BeNeLux and this year it was in Nieuwegein which is a new location for this event. After a slippery ride (first snow this year) I arrived at the NBC and took a look at the program:
Citrix: Creating a Load Balanced Multi-Node Citrix Receiver StoreFront Server Group for use with Citrix CloudGateway #2
After Dane Young wrote an excellent blogpost on how to setup a load balanced multi-node Citrix Receiver StoreFront Server group for use with the Citrix Cloud Gateway I used his information and screenshots to build a similar environment. The only thing that’s different from Dane’s stetup is that we were using Cisco ACE’s for loadbalancing. We created a setup with two Cisco ACE 4710’s in an HA pair (Hot-standby) on both of the available data centers. The ACE can be divided into virtual contexts, so we were able to create a separated management configuration and dedicated resources for the SBC/VDI configuration.
