Upgrading VMware Horizon View with Zero Downtime

Over the last few years working with VMware Horizon View and doing many upgrades, one of the biggest issues I would hear from customers when planning for an upgrade was, Why do we have to have so much downtime and why with 7 connection brokers do we have to take all 7 down at once.

These questions and issues came up when I was speaking to Engineering about the upgrade process and making it smoother for the customer.

I was told that this in fact was not the case and you did not have to take all connection brokers down during the upgrade process and you could simply upgrade 1 connection broker at a time while the other servers were happily running.
