Citrix VDI Handbook for XenApp and XenDesktop 7.15


Almost one year ago, I announced the availability of the Citrix VDI Best Practices Handbook for XenApp and XenDesktop 7.6 (that’s a really long title).

Since then, I received many positive comments from many of you. Thank you.

One of the goals I set was to release an updated version of the handbook for upcoming Long Term Service Releases (LTSR). And with the release of XenApp and XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR, I’m happy to say that we achieved this goal.

Matthew Brooks, Jeff Qiu and I updated the handbook to include new capabilities and recommendations. We added 30 new sections and updated 15 other sections. For example, we have content related to

  1. Cloud
  2. App Layering
  3. Windows 2016
  4. Local Host Cache
  5. Machine Creation Services
  6. Provisioning Services Accelerator
  7. Adaptive Display & Adaptive Transport
  8. And much, much, much, much, much more

A complete list of updates can be found at the end of the paper in the Revisions Table.

So grab a drink, find a comfy chair, sit back, relax and enjoy the Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7.15 VDI Best Practices Handbook.

Citrix VDI Handbook 7.6


The Citrix VDI Handbook is now available!

Let me answer a few questions about the VDI Handbook

  1. Version: The VDI Handbook is based on the XenApp and XenDesktop 7.6 Long-Term Service Release.
  2. Updates: The plan is to release a VDI Handbook for each Long-Term Service Release. The VDI Handbook is based on real-world implementation experiences. Basing updates on LTSR releases (18-24+ months) allows us to include better recommendations than if we updated for the current release (every quarter).
  3. Format: PDF and HTML. The PDF version is ready now, the HTML version will be ready shortly.
  4. Content: The handbook includes information on Assess, Design and Monitor.
