RPA on VM environment
Our customer wants to get a case study where many Robots are concurrently working in VM environment such as Citrix. The high level use case is ;
During day time hours, the robots are continuously searching for Workqueue to get next work (assignment) and it will be retrieved if there is one available. For other use, the robots will work for a given purpose during midnight. I learned from another article that one robot will work per one runtime on one guest OS on VM. It would be a big help if we have a real business scenario and system architecture diagram which draws how respective robots will act in what kind of architecture /environment and how related configuration should be done.
1) Set up separate VM for each robot type (one type would be the robot that works during the day, another type is the robot that works from midnight). Depending on the amount of work to be performed by each Robot type you might need one or several instances of the same robot type. Each instance of robot require separate VM, so you may require more than 2 VMs in total. Runtime configuration on each VM should be the done as if this is physical desktop.
