Deploying Citrix MetaFrame on IBM eServer BladeCenter with IBM FAStT Storage

An IBM Redpaper publication

Abstract

As data centers have grown with the proliferation of Wintel servers over recent years, it is important to note that rack space and floor space can be more efficiently used with the IBM BladeCenter HS20 servers. Attractive cost savings are also possible in situations where a large number of rack installed servers are required. Combined with the latest IBM storage, you have some winning options to consider.

This IBM Redpaper describes the technology, installation, functionality and advantages of Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server running on HS20 blade servers. In addition, we discuss the use and benefits of the IBM TotalStorage FAStT600 Storage Server.

In Chapter 1, we cover the features and functions of the IBM Eserver BladeCenter .

In Chapter 2, we cover the features and functions of the IBM TotalStorage FAStT600 Storage Server .

Chapter 3 examines the different components required for a Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server installation on the HS20 with the FAStT600.

Chapter 4 provides a number of scenarios installing the Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server .

Chapter 5 describes the process we followed to install Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server on the HS20 blade servers with the IBM TotalStorage FAStT600 Storage Server.

Chapter 6 describes the process we used to publish applications onto a Citrix server.

The remaining chapters discuss the use of the Web Interface and Citrix Conferencing Manager .
