Suggestions for intelliflash and MCSIO for new setup of Citrix Hypervisor and Xendesktop non-persistent VDI

J.P. Marshall


I have a current Xenserver farm running 7.6 and it is supplying desktops for a non-persistent Xendesktop farm.  I have been unable to upgrade this farm because the machines are not able to move between hosts for an upgrade.  I believe that this is because of the temp storage in the Machine Catalog is using local storage on the XS hosts (they have internal SSD drives).  What I would like as I build out my Citrix Hypervisor 8.1 farm is to have suggestions to get the best possible speed out of the 3 hosts but still be able to move machines around for patching an upgrading.  We will be running 1912 VDA on windows 10 VMs built with Citrix App Layering with Full user layers


When I build the new hosts

Should I turn on Intelliflash?

Should I enable Thin Provisioning?

What  Disk should be selected for VM Data?


When building out the new catalog and Connection from Xendesktop to Senserver

Do I select Optimize temp storage?

Do I select Use Intellicache?


What other thoughts and suggestions am I not thinking of?


Sorry for the general questions, but I have not been able to find good information on how to fix this issue and a preferred way of setting the system up.
