Best Practices for Upgrading to Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 7

Ensure seamless and successful Citrix migration

Performance Consistency is Critical for Successful Citrix Upgrade

Citrix Upgrade - XenApp and XenDesktop 7.x

The upgrade to Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 7 involves significant architectural, configuration, and platform changes. Considering all the changes involved, the move to Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 7 is a full migration, rather than just an in-place upgrade.

Ultimately, the success of this upgrade hinges on the experience that users perceive, post-migration. With Citrix EdgeSight no longer included as a monitoring tool in Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 7 (Citrix Director now fulfills some of the monitoring needs), there are likely to be several missing capabilities and performance monitoring gaps after migration. To overcome these challenges, organizations must put in place an effective performance management strategy as part of the migration effort.
