This Deploying App and Desktop Solutions with Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7.6 Training training class provides students with the skills required to successfully deploy 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: XenServer, XenDesktop, Citrix License Server, MCS, PVS, Personal vDisk, StoreFront, NetScaler (ICA Proxy, Load Balancing, Endpoint Analysis), and Citrix Receiver. Upon course completion, students will be able to build a XenDesktop 7.6 environment from scratch and test the implementation to ensure that all components work as expected and that both internal and external end users can access XenDesktop resources successfully.

This course is recommended for solution designers such as Architects, Consultants, and Engineers. Students will gain hands-on experience installing and configuring hosted application and desktop virtualization solutions from the ground up. Upon completion of the course, students will have the skills required to successfully deploy XenDesktop 7.6 solutions that the majority of Citrix customers implement today.

In addition to field experience, this course prepares candidates for the Deploying XenDesktop 7 Solutions exam. All students will receive a voucher to take the exam at no cost. By passing the Deploying Citrix XenDesktop 7 Solutions exam, candidates will gain the Citrix Certified Professional - Virtualization certification.
