Our company is going to implement a Citrix Farm at the data-center. There will be 6 presenation servers with two access gateways. There will be 60 concurrent users at a remote site. These Citrix users will be accessing via an MPLS WAN. The data-center MPLS connection is load-balanced with two DS3s (45mb). The remote site is load-balanaced with two sub-rate DS3s (9mb).
I want the best user/client performance as possible. The user (Citrix) client will use a web application. There will no printing or drive mapping etc. I have experience with end-to-end QoS. But I wasn't sure whether to investigate WAAS or other types of WAN optimization.
I was going to apply a QoS policy on the network for Citrix data. Should I look at WAN optimization as well? Has anyone had any experience with latency or problems? Could someone recommend a best practice or link?
Thanks a lot , always appreciated.
