This course provides students an accelerated path to obtain the skills required to successfully deploy and support a complete Citrix hosted application and desktop virtualization solution in a Windows Server 2012 R2 environment.
Throughout this course, students will learn how to configure an environment that includes the following Citrix components: XenApp and XenDesktop, XenServer, Citrix License Server, MCS, Provisioning Services (PVS), Personal vDisk, StoreFront, NetScaler (including NetScaler Gateway), and Citrix Receiver. Upon course completion, students will be able to build a XenApp and XenDesktop 7.x environment from scratch, test the implementation to ensure that all components work as expected, and successfully manage, monitor, and troubleshoot a XenApp and XenDesktop 7.x solution.
This course is recommended for Architects, Consultants, Engineers, and Administrators. Students will gain hands-on experience installing, configuring, and managing hosted application and desktop virtualization solutions from the ground up. Upon completion of the course, students will have the skills required to successfully deploy and support XenApp and XenDesktop 7.x solutions that the majority of Citrix customers implement today.
Upon successful completion of this course, learners are able to:
Understand the XenApp and XenDesktop 7.x architecture, components, and communication
Set up the hypervisor
Set up and manage the XenApp and XenDesktop 7.x infrastructure
Create and manage machine catalogs and Delivery Groups

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
