Q & A for the March Webinar: Virtualize and Fortify XenApp for Lower Costs & Higher SLAs

We had some great questions during the Q & A session of our March webinar with Peter Blum and Sridhar Mullapudi, both of Citrix Systems. We’ve posted the questions and responses here on our blog for everyone’s benefit. This webinar was recorded in case you weren't able to attend, click here to view the webcast!

Q: How big of data pipe is needed for Level 2 (between sites)?
A: The data pipe needed for Level-2 across two sites is an OC3 or higher with 10ms round trip latency.

Q: Can Marathon be used to provide Active - Active access to database applications in geographic disperse locations?
A: Yes, we can with our Level-3 protection and split site option, however the users will only connect to one server at a time.

Q: When is Server 2008 going to be supported?
A: 2008 support will be available on April 30th.

Q: Can you speak to some of the requirements, network speed, latency, etc. necessary to utilize the everRun DR solution?
A: everRun DR can run on any network pipe that can accommodate the amount of change data we will be replicating. Because this is an asynchronous product with compression as well as a bandwidth modeler, we can perform a bandwidth assessment in your environment to tell you what your RPO would be with your current network pipe.

Q: Does everRun provide any corruption detection or warning messages?
A: Since everRun is application agnostic we cannot detect corrupt application data at this time.

Q: When will Marathon’s product work with Dell OEM Citrix XenServer?
A: It is currently being researched and is not assigned for release yet.
