Im trying to assist a small company who is trying to make a Citrix Deployment happen on limited funds and just need help understanding the pros and cons of the different approaches to making a Web Interface Redundant. I run Citrix Netscalers, so I have never had to deal with this.
I have heard of people using DNS Round Robin, Network Load Balancing, or just set in the configuration of the Web Interface a Backup Web Interface Server.
Can I get some input on what may be the pros and cons of these items. I haven't heard much cons on DNS Robin, but I just never liked using it. Network Load Balancing and DNS Round Robin I know can have its cons because it doesn't know if an issue is happening on a Web Interface Server... If it can contact it.. it is sending traffic.
Im almost thinking since it is a fairly small company, just using two web interface servers and then configuring the config.xml for the XenApp PLugin to have a backup web interface. That way is the Plugin cant contact the primary, it will use the backup.
Am I just looking too deep into this considering its a small company? Any feedback would be great.
