How many management/publishing servers? RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi

    I'm putting some rough figures together for Management/Publishing Servers for 5.0 SP2. It will be a very large Citrix XenApp environment. Each XenApp server will have all App-V packages cached locally, to improve performance. However, I have no idea how many Management/Publishing Servers would be recommended and how much resources to assign them. 

    Currently, figures are:

    640 XenApp servers
    12,800 Users
    500 apps (this is nothing but a wild guess)

    The Management/Publishing Servers will be VMs. We have huge amounts of vCPU & vRAM available and as we have Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter edition, the number of Windows instances is not important. Assume Storage and SQL is well specced as well.

    I'm guessing 4 servers with 4 vCPU and 16GB RAM. Is this anything like what you'd expect?
