Talk about flexibility. NetScaler VPX and XenApp run on VMWare ESX. We know this because we recently helped SAP build a proof of concept for their upcoming SAP Tech Ed shows in Berlin and Las Vegas. Their labs are being converted to XenServer, but until then, we had to use VMWare ESX.
We installed XenApp 5.3 on Windows Server 2003, although we could have used Windows Server 2008, or even XenApp 6.0 on Windows Server 2008 R2. We installed two NetScaler VPX’s in HA mode, running on VMWare ESX. You will need the NS VPX host MAC address to get a license. We then configured the NetScaler VPX’s and XenApp according to the deployment guide for Receiver on iPhone/iPad.
We published the SAP NetWeaver ABAP application in XenApp, installed Citrix Receiver on the iPad, and then were able to access SAP NetWeaver.
What device will you run SAP on?
