One can find lots of publications, comments and even conferences talking about virtualization best practices, but many authors don't bear in mind that these tips change depending on the technology which is being used. In this article we provide some Citrix & VMware best practices that we should clarify not to become worst practices:
Performance tab isn't where admins should look first to monitor vSphere.

Citrix license server grace periods aren't automatic.
Callbacks in Citrix StoreFront aren't really optional.
All codecs are not the same.
Not everyone needs to use WorxMail and Mobile Device Management in Citrix XenMobile.

Don't trust everything experts say.
Flexcast Management Architecture (FMA) can span data centers.
Pod architecture isn't useless.
