Just out of interest - is it a single app -- or couple of apps - to a db backend, or is it more of a desktop environment? _____ From: thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Tony Lyne Sent: 24 May 2006 21:01 To: thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [THIN] Re: Citrix farms over a WAN Sorry guys I cant really give out any more information because of the nature of the project. But all I can say is thay my inital WAN concerns are now addressed with this kind of farm design. I found out last night they are all 2M links with a 100M wan link at the core datacenter, % utilization of the WAN looks very low. Traffic is also shaped which will help. I would have to admit though, doing this with Metaframe XP 1.0 would have been near impossible, but when Citrix changed the way Zones can communicate over multiple subnets (ie disabling LB across zones) its now a viable option, Also using policies to control LB behavior within those zones is a real bonus.

Is the data for these applications be replicated between all 27 of these sites. I would get that question answered first then design Citrix around that. _____ From: thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Andrew Wood Sent: May 24, 2006 8:07 AM To: thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [THIN] Re: Citrix farms over a WAN Are they, for instance, mad?
