Synopsis

This course has been retired. Please review the Virtualization portfolio for available courses.

The Microsoft M10324 course provides you with the knowledge and skills to implement and manage desktop virtualization solutions.

This course provides an overview of virtualization and the various Microsoft products that you can use to implement and deploy a virtualization solution.

The course explains how to configure and manage a MED-V deployment. Then, it describes the procedures for deploying an App-V solution by implementing App-V servers and clients and by sequencing applications.

The course then covers the configuration of Remote Desktop Services and RemoteApp programs.

Finally, the course describes the concept of user state virtualization and procedures for configuring the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).

Objectives

On completion of the Microsoft M10324 course, delegates will be able to:

Suitable For

The Microsoft MS10324 course is intended for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 system and desktop administrators who will manage and implement desktop and application virtualization technologies within their networks.

The students for this course typically are responsible for implementing their organizations' desktop and application virtualization, or their information technology (IT) management has directed them to research and/or implement desktop and application virtualization in the existing environment.

Students should have a minimum of 1.5 years of experience working with Windows Server 2008 as a server or desktop administrator.

This course does not require prior experience with virtualization. However, we highly recommend familiarity with virtualization concepts and management tools.

Prerequisites

Before attending the Microsoft 10324 course, students must have:
