Register for Hands-On Lab at Citrix Synergy for ConvergedSystem 100 powered by HP Moonshot

By Guest Blogger Karen Brown, HP Client Virtualization Portfolio Marketing


Have you been tasked to find an easier way to deliver virtual desktops? Are you interested in a new architecture that is changing the way desktop virtualization is deployed?  Learn how the XenDesktop FlexCast model can be architected on an innovative platform called HP ConvergedSystem 100 for Hosted Desktops powered by HP Moonshot.  Citrix XenDesktop running on the HP Converged System 100 is the first system to provide dedicated, bare-metal, pooled desktops to 180 users in a single chassis without using a hypervisor or SAN.


In this 5 hour lab SYN 603 ,titled Deploying desktop virtualization using Citrix XenDesktop and HP Moonshot, students will learn to provision and deliver Windows 7 desktops with XenDesktop and PVS along with HP deployment tools such as HP ILO, Chassis Manager, and PowerShell to help automate the provisioning of desktops. Students will have hands-on access in this lab using a HP ConvergedSystem 100 chassis and a virtual machine hosted infrastructure to build and validate this new platform with XenDesktop. Students will also obtain in depth knowledge from the architects at Citrix and HP who created this new solution!


Prerequisites: Intermediate knowledge of XenDesktop 7.x, Provisioning Services 7.x and Windows 2012 recommended.
