Citrix Recommends Login VSI
A few months ago Nick Rintalan, a Managing Director and Principal Architect at Citrix, published an article
providing recommendations and guidance on how to estimate how many users or virtual machines (VMs) can be supported on a single physical host.
This is commonly referred to by Citrix as “single-server scalability” (SSS). The article covers several of the variables that influence Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (CVAD) SSS. He provides recommendations for sizing and testing various SSS environment. One of his key recommendations was:
“Citrix recommends using Login VSI…to validate [test] results,
especially before purchasing hardware or making any financial decisions.”
– Nick Rintalan, Managing Director and Principal Architect, Citrix
The only way to truly understand CVAD SSS is to utilize a scalability testing platform like Login VSI. Citrix recommends using this guidance and these simple rules to estimate SSS quickly.
