I am an active user for Zerto currently replicating windows servers from Vmware to AWS.
Please can you let me know the key considerations when replication Citrix servers into Azure or AWS or another Vmware clusert. Are there any best practice around this (re-ip addresses etc) and are there any key steps to keep in mind when setting up such replication ?
Scope could include the whole citrix infrastructure including the netscalar appliance. Any help is much appreciated.
This will probably work, but a few notes of caution and of course it has to be tested. As Netscalers operate natively in HA mode, I’m not sure why you want to replicate it in ZVR anyways. Also, you can have a VPX installed at the recovery site and just fire it up with the config file (ns.conf) from the production site for an identical and very fast startup. There is no license cost for the passive unit.
Please look at the Interoperability Matrix for all Zerto Version for windows server:
So the setup is predominantly made of Netscalars, storefront servers and multiple citrix server. I think what I am trying to understand is if I will need to re-ip all the instances when failed over to Azure/AWS or there is a way for me to carry the existing IPs in their entirety into the Azure bubble and route the whole layer 3 VLAN to Azure upon failover.
