Course Description:

Navigate the move from an on-premises environment into Citrix Cloud and learn to deploy resource locations onto
Amazon Web Services. Learn the architecture, communications, and management of Citrix Cloud and the Citrix Virtual
Apps and Desktops Service and then migrate existing infrastructure and settings into Citrix Cloud. If you are planning
a move to Citrix Cloud or starting out anew, this course is a necessary step in enabling you with the right training and
skills to understand, manage, and deliver successfully. Plan machine catalog and virtual machine design based in
Amazon Web Services and deploy those machines using Machine Creation Services.
You will also learn valuable leading practices for maintaining and managing your Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops
Service deployment, including deployments integrated with AWS, such as power management and the use of Autoscale.
Together with the hands-on lab exercises, this course gives you the opportunity to create a successful Citrix Virtual
Apps and Desktops Service deployment on AWS.
