A Citrix Active/Active Deployment Part 3

I’m at the point now where the Datacenter#2 has Networking, Storage, and Hosts ready for me to use.  That means it’s VM building time.  You pretty much need the identical components you have for your existing site.  Remember the key focus here is Highly Available and reliability.  So if one datacenter goes down, the other

Citrix App Layering – With Extra Frosting

Meet a few Partners


Over the last 5 years I’ve had the privilege of working with Steve both as a coworker and a partner. He is a true technologist with a deep understanding of End User Computing that stems from hands on experience. Steve is an expert at taking user workflows and application requirements and translating them into the correct technology. There is immense value in the fact that he also understands the infrastructure side of an advanced application delivery architecture and is able articulate requirements for reference architectures.

I strongly recommend Steven Noel and his vast experience in the information technology sector. Steven is currently on an assignment for me and has been a true professional and a breath of fresh air. As a senior recruiter in the IT industry, professionalism and a self-driven personality is something that I would consider rare, both of which Steven prides himself on. Steve has provided tremendous leadership and technical ability in a stressful and deadline critical environment. I would not hesitate to work with Steve again.

We were in need of an upgrade in order support enhanced versions of our applications so we engaged Steve to lead us through the project. We leveraged his expertise and dedication to the project over the course of a year. Our internal team enjoyed working with Steve and his attention to detail and ability to follow through makes him a valuable asset. I would strongly recommend Steve as a Citrix expert.
