What i like about this book was that it broke it down and distilled the information very well.
For someone who has worked with Citrix products before, there was still enough information in here for me to sit up and think "now thats something i hadn't thought about before!". What i also liked is the way the book is set out, i.e. the hypothetical organization which requires this new technology and the consultant person who needs to get it ready for business use. For the newbie to Xenapp 6, this is a must. The IT world is pretty much bereft of Citrix study howto and guides's as opposed to Microsoft or Vmware, which when you look at the compelling technology Citrix have at their disposal is somewhat mind boggling; sure there are some study guides and a Xendesktop 4 Book (which i also liked!), but all in all they are very thin on the ground.
So, for me a very good book, it wont cover absolutely everything XenApp 6 (You will still have to dive into those dreaded edocs), but for me, it was well a very very welcome addition!
This is a comprehensive book on Citrix XenApp 6: it introduces you to all relevant XenApp features and advantages in a typical farm.
The book starts presenting you a fictitious organization which requires Citrix technology and, going on over chapters, it explains how to install, configure and mantain a XenApp farm. The author explains you how publish applications, configure HDX features and Citrix policies, use Powershell to manage XenApp and how to implement a Citrix farm on virtual environment based on XenServer, Hyper-V or Vmware.
This book is a good start about XenApp 6 so if you are a newbie to application delivery technology this book is a must for you. Also, it is a good reference for those that have experience on XenApp farms.
So,if you are looking for a book about XenApp it is a good choice in my opinion: it doesn't cover absolutely everything (honestly I will prefer read more on Citrix Web Interface configuration and Citrix Secure Gateway for example and more details about farm design). Are you a Citrix Administrator? Don't hesitate, keep it on your office desk! It is a valuable companion for daily XenApp farm administration.
