Citrix and Marathon Demo at SAP - Part I

We recently teamed up with Citrix to demonstrate an end-to-end Citrix and Marathon combined solution onsite at one of the world's largest business software companies, SAP. Bhumik Patel of Citrix was one of the team members on the project.

A quick overview of the project is available here.

First they virtualized every Citrix Delivery Center component and the backend SAP NetWeaver application servers using Citrix XenServer. Then they showcased what a remote SAP NetWeaver user would experience accessing the SAP NetWeaver Portal via Citrix Delivery Center while focusing on the high availability/fault tolerant solutions Citrix and Marathon provide. Finally, they simulated a complete failure in the primary site and used the combined NetScaler Global Server Load Balancing feature in conjunction with Marathon's everRun DR product to failover SAP to a secondary data center.

Each piece of the demo is broken down into small video segments in Bhumik’s blog. Part One is available now. Stay tuned to Bhumik’s blog for a detailed reference architecture and additional videos on different high availability scenarios including everRun VM, also demonstrated at SAP Co-Innovation Lab.
