Some XenApp 6.5 ZDC Replication Calculations

James Denne, a fellow Citrite, has written this great blog post I would like to share with you tonight.

With the approaching end of life date for XenApp 5, one of my customers is currently designing their XenApp 6.5 farm and asked for some assistance calculating the amount of data that would be replicated between each zone data collector.


Let’s detail the existing environment:

  • XenApp 5 Feature Pack 2
  • Hotfix Rollup Pack 7
  • 350 servers
  • 14 zones in 10 countries globally.
  • Core farm infrastructure (SQL publisher datastore, licence server) located in the same datacentre as the “UK 5″ zone.

Here are the zone names and the average number of user logons per day.
