Citrix VDI-in-a-Box on VMware on NetApp NFS

Looking to implement as per the title. Anyone know any good resources that can help me with this? Implementation guides, best practice docs etc.

Thanks.

Frank,

Here's our Solutions guide for Citrix XD on NetApp that includes using vSphere.

Let us know if that isn't what you were looking for.

Hi Frank and Adam,

I wanted to clarify the question since Citrix has another offering based on the acquisition of Kavisa that is named "VDI in a Box" - http://www.citrix.com/products/vdi-in-a-box/overview.html.

If this is what you are after please check the following links for more details:

http://www.virtualizationadmin.com/articles-tutorials/vdi-articles/general/citrix-vdi-in-a-box-part1.html

http://www.virtualizationadmin.com/articles-tutorials/vdi-articles/general/citrix-vdi-in-a-box-part2.html

http://www.virtualizationadmin.com/articles-tutorials/vdi-articles/general/citrix-vdi-in-a-box-part3.html

if not, the solution guide referenced by Frank will help you with Citrix XenDesktop on Clustered Data ONTAP using vSphere.

Regards,

-Cedric

Thanks Adam and Cedric,

The product I'm referring to is indeed the one you've linked to Cedric. However, the additional links are to an interview, and don't really provide too much info on actually deploying the solution. The articles have some info on sizing, which is good, but I've already sized our solution using the sizing calculator on Citrix's website. I'm looking for an implementation/administration guide and best practice documents. Specifically as regards to deploying this solution on NetApp.

Appreciate any pointers.

Thanks.
