She has been specializing in virtualization solutions such as SBC, VDI, and application and server virtualization for over seven years now, and currently works as a senior consultant at Pepper Byte, where she designs and implements Citrix® solutions for both small-business and large-enterprise infrastructures scaling from 100 to 15,000 users.

Giving readers an insight into configuring, managing, and optimizing the advanced features of Citrix XenApp, this practical guide starts by helping readers to understand the Citrix Licensing protocol and establish Remote Desktop Services.
