In my post last post before VMWorld Europe, I embedded a new demo video on the StorageLink functionality with the recently announced Citrix Essentials for Hyper-V. Another component of Citrix Essentials for Hyper-V is Lab Management. In the next video, Peter Blum takes about five minutes to review the capabilities of this new feature inside Essentials.

Here are the requirements for Lab Manager –

Lab Manager host (Platinum Edition only):

  • CPU: Intel or AMD x86 or x64 compatible; 1 GHz minimum; 2 GHz preferred
  • RAM: (will vary by number of managed physical hosts, number of users and number of deployed VMs)
  • Disk space: 10 GB minimum for small labs and 30 GB for large labs (disk usage will vary by number of templates, ISOs, scripts and software packages)
  • OS: Windows Server 2003
  • Database: PostgresSQL 8.3 for data store installed locally on LabManager host

    Lab Manager agent for Hyper-V (Platinum Edition only):
  • One agent required per Hyper-V Host
  • Installed on the Hyper-V host
  • RAM: 512 MB minimum
