Learning Lab at Synergy Summit


Platform training on XenDesktop with Cisco Unified Computing System and NetApp (SUM614W)

Attendees in this hands-on session will train on the Citrix XenDesktop platform by performing configurations of Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), NetApp storage and XenDesktop taught by instructors from Citrix, Cisco and NetApp. Design, implementation and best practice guidance on building a XenDesktop solution with Cisco UCS and NetApp will be provided. Leveraging the Cisco UCS Platform emulator, you will learn to configure service profiles and gain hands–on experience on all aspects of configuring a large-scale UCS blade environment for hosting XenDesktop. You will also use the NetApp ONTAP management tool to practice advanced configurations and provisioning of storage in line with best practices for hosting XenDesktop. Also, you will learn to use the NetApp Virtual Storage Console for Citrix XenServer with XenDesktop, a single panel integration to monitor, configure, provision and back up your data and virtual machines.
