Book Description

Cloud computing is emerging as a hot technology, thereby creating a lot of new jobs, and providing a lot of opportunities for IT service providers to run and manage clouds. Citrix CloudPortal Business Manager enables cloud builders to manage and deliver any cloud or IT service through a single, comprehensive cloud services platform which unifies and simplifies the commercial, user management, service provisioning, and operational aspects of running a cloud.

Getting Started with Citrix® CloudPortal™ is a hands-on guide that will help you to learn the installation, configuration, deploying services, managing, and operating of Citrix CloudPortal. It will also help you to take advantage of the real power that is behind CPSM and CPBM and give you a good grounding in operating it in your own enterprises. The book is structured with practical implementations, which are all fully backed up with code and illustrations.

Getting Started with Citrix® CloudPortal™ will make you aware of the cloud and its implications, starting with aspects of the cloud such as renting, self-service, and the provisioning of services to cloud tenants and their customers. You will also learn how to deploy services on your own using CPSM and CPBM, detailed steps of VM provisioning, setting up a cloud user profile, setting up a catalog, CPBM product management, workflow management, cloud billing, and cloud pricing management. If you want to take advantage of using the new Citrix CPBM and CPSM, then this is the book for you to upgrade your skills.
