XenServer and PVS Integration

In this video Citrix shows the new XenServer and PVS integration. This video introduces a new feature – XenServer cache acceleration for PVS, how it works, and some configuration tips. The video will show you How-To enable XenServer cache acceleration for PVS.

The PVS and XenServer teams have developed a way to further simplify and enhance Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop deployments, adding fuel to Citrix’s “Better Together” concept.

By allowing target devices (servers and desktops) to access data directly from XenServer RAM cache instead of PVS RAM cache, network traffic that would typically pass between PVS clients and servers can be significantly reduced. This benefit, combined with the reduction in the number of read requests that need to be processed by Provisioning Servers, enables customers to achieve greater VM density, faster boot times (during boot storms) and overall improved device performance in XenApp and XenDesktop environments.
