Since before the acquisition of Sanbolic by Citrix, the MelioFS product has been utilized to reduce the administrative overhead of managing multiple Citrix Provisioning Services (PVS) vDisk stores. The MelioFS software allowed for creation of a clustered file system on Microsoft Windows servers, thus reducing the number of vDisks that had to be sychronized across multiple volumes in larger VDI deployments.
The Sanbolic MelioFS product will go end of life (EOL) on June 30th, 2016. Below is an overview of options we have presented to one of our clients. Use these as a reference for replacement in your own Citrix Provisioning environment or contact us for a more comprehensive plan.
