Getting Started with XenDesktop 7.x

I did a book review for a recent title named “Getting Started with XenDesktop 7.x” for PACKT Publishers.

imageThe book content is primarily aimed to help out anyone who is going to start up on XenDesktop Administration.   The content is essentially focused with practical exampling along with screenshots which gives a faster understanding about the technology for both fresh and experienced professionals to work with XenDesktop 7.x.

We have made efforts to give a reasons for various options and their importance and optimal values to use in a real time setup to get start up your XenDesktop.  There also been an addition of very useful tips/resources at all relevant topics.

I strongly suggest/recommend this book for anyone who quickly wants to get their XenDesktop up and running.

About my mention in the reviewers list of the book:
