Design XenApp 6.5
Posted on 2012-03-28
We have decided to install XA 6.5 Environment , in additioon we have the NetScaler as well.
We will be installing around 100-200 Applications in all and serve around 1200 users.
I have been given 12 Virtual servers in all (All virtual 4-8GB Ram , Goo 2 - 4 Processors) to create a fully redundant environment.
As i checked documnetation online , I decided on this: to dedicated Data Controllers that will have XML service as well (1 will be backup for another) -- No Applications installed on them.
2 Web Interface Servers -- Netscaler Load Balancing them for redundency
8 Session-Only mode servers - taht will have applications installed in a distributed manner.
My Questions are:
Do i really need to have dedicated Data Controllers or shall i install some applications on them. Or is that in XA 6.5 DC's Are only Dedicated ones .
Am i using Too Many servers -- can I install Web Interface Servers with the Data collectors -- What Impact will that have.. This is my main Question
We also have license foe EdgeSight -- do i need a separate server for Edgesight or can i club it with any of the above mentioned.
We have 2 Sites separated by 5MB Link -- do we need to keep Web Interface Server and applications Session-Only Mode servsrs in each location .
