Christiaan Brinkhoff – Microsoft Azure and Citrix Cloud: A Digital Workspace Match Made in Heaven…

One of the great Cloud innovations throughout last year, as result of the increased partnership between Microsoft and Citrix – is definitely the release of XenApp and XenDesktop in the Microsoft Azure (Public) Cloud – named XenApp and XenDesktop Essentials. During the session – I’ll walk you through all the Citrix on Azure architectural concepts, best practices, lessons learned and will answering all the most common questions you’ll need to know before you start implementing Citrix inside Microsoft Azure. There is also room for a short demo and Q&A at the end of this presentation. It’s really easy! Please preserve you’re seat now!
