This article describes how to implement high availability (HA) and load balancing (LB) for App-V v5 Server components.

More information

High availability (HA) and load balancing (LB) are not features of App-V v5. To implement HA and LB refer to the following article:

The App-V v5 Server architecture is compatible with external HA and LB solutions in that it permits the following:

Multiple App-V v5 Management Servers per management database (behind load balancer)
Multiple App-V v5 Publishing Servers per management server (behind load balancer)
Multiple App-V v5 Reporting Servers per reporting database (behind load balancer)
