Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop have evolved from being app and desktop virtualization solutions into strategic components of the Secure Digital Workspace.
As new admins get into the business of YES, one of the most used resources to get started with Citrix has been the Reviewer’s Guide. Whether you are a partner, a customer, or even a blogger, the guide offers the quickest way to understand the various Citrix components, deploy them in a simple home-lab, and see for yourself how it all fits together. Once you have the pre-requisites in place, getting the entire evaluation up and running is no more than half-a-day for most people.
Historically, we’ve published the Reviewer’s Guide as a flat PDF file (that’s so 20th Century). I’m happy to introduce the Reviewer’s Guide as a more interactive web page. While this is still in beta, I think it’s a massive improvement over PDF and would love your feedback on this new layout. We expect the content will be easier to consume, easier to share with your colleagues, and easier to cross-reference with other online resources. Trying XenApp and XenDesktop is only the first step in evaluating the complete Digital Workspace from Citrix, and more guides will be added based on your feedback.
Once you’ve had a chance to review the new guide, please provide us your feedback so that we can continue to improve.
