Optimal File Server solution for Fsprofile containers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey all

    We are using Fslogix profile container for our Citrix users.

    We have today one file server with access from more than 850 users at a time.
    But we can see high disk latency on that File Server 2016.

    We want to create A file cluster instead, but what is the best solution, when we want HA and maximum performance?

    Is it Microsoft Scale out File Server?

    We are using Dell VX-Rail and VMware VSAN as the system for storing the virtual servers running the entire IT for the Citrix users.

  • Hi,

    You might want to go with Scale Out File Server or a file cluster with continuous access enabled, it shouldn't really matter.

    I am not familar with VMware VSAN, but usually with Scale Out File Server as it is a Windows Files Cluster, you will need Raw Device Mapped Disks, maybe VSAN can do some kind of "magic" in that area?
