With the new 7.x version of XenApp, Citrix made many changes to its infrastructure and to the way it works; hence Packt Publishing, that is the editor of my  first book about XenApp, asked me for a new, updated edition:

6114EN_cov

The book consists of four chapters and covers the following topics:

[checklist]

  • the new Flexcast Management Architecture (FMA): how to build scalable and well-performing infrastructures
  • the new tool for deploying worker servers: Machine Creation Services (MCS)
  • the main differences between XenApp 6.5 and XenApp 7.x
  • the tools to administer and monitor the infrastructure: DirectorEdgeSight, Powershell and OData API
  • functions and settings to optimize hardware resources and to balance the load
  • how to optimize the end user experience
  • how to control user profiles and sessions with Citrix Profile ManagementICA Keep-alive
  • the use of AppDNA to analyse and optimize the applications
  • how to publish applications through geographic links (WAN)
  • the use of WANem to simulate different links
  • traffic shaping settings to optimize the usage of the bandwidth
  • the use of CloudBridge as wan accelerator

[/checklist]

The book is available on the editor’s website and on the major online webstores, in printed and electronic (ebook) version.

Packt Publishing also gave me the opportunity to give away 3 free copies of the book.
