About the author:

Gaspare A. Silvestri is an IT specialist with 10 years of experience in the Information Technology industry. Currently, he works as the CTO for an ICT company based in Italy. Being a multicertified IT director, he considers his job as the first of all his passions, with a particular preference for the areas of virtualization and Unix. He is always curious and in search of new IT projects on which to perform research activities. Gaspare has been involved in the design, tuning, and consolidation of physical and virtual infrastructures for important system integration companies based in Italy. Gaspare is also the author of Citrix XenDesktop 5.6 Cookbook by Packt Publishing.

Citrix XenDesktop 7 Cookbook begins with the required installation and upgrade procedure on which the final architecture will perform its work. Starting from this point, readers will create the virtual resources to deploy, install, and integrate the security and architectural components which complete the XenDesktop infrastructure (StoreFront, Netscaler Gateway, the CloudBridge platform, and so on) using a flow that will bring them to the final advanced Powershell configuration tasks.

This book will help readers understand the upgrade and installation procedures for the core infrastructural components and how to deploy and optimize procedures for desktop virtual machines. Readers will also learn how to install and configure collateral platforms such as the CloudBridge platform as well as perform desktop and application deployment through the XenDesktop core and integrated publishing platforms such as Microsoft App-V.

The book is enriched with advanced configurations and conceptual explanations that permit novice readers as well as experienced professionals to understand what they’re going to implement. With this book, readers can polish their skills in executing the most advanced activities in VDI environments, tune and secure Citrix sites, and also complete implementation activities using the Citrix Powershell modules.
