Citrix XenApp is the market leader in application hosting and virtualization delivery, allowing users from different platforms such as Windows, Mac, Linux, and mobile devices to connect to their business applications. Using XenApp, you can deploy secure applications quickly to thousands of users. This book takes you through the deployment of your server farm. With the infrastructure in place, you can publish applications to users and manage load balancing within the server farm.

Instant Citrix XenApp 6.5 is written to be a quick and effective guide to deploy your Citrix-based remote desktop server farm.

You begin by laying out the resources required, such as the Licensing Server, the Web Interface Server, and the XenApp Server. You will then learn their purpose and move onto installing them in their logical order. Next, you can customize the web interface to brand it with your corporate identity. It won't be long before you have already published an application and resources for users and testing gets underway in earnest.
