CNS-207 Implementing Citrix NetScaler 10 for XenDesktop or XenApp Solutions

The objective of Implementing Citrix NetScaler 10 for XenDesktop or XenApp Solutions is to provide the foundational concepts and skills necessary to implement, configure, secure, and monitor a Citrix NetScaler system with NetScaler (Access) Gateway in a desktop virtualization environment, providing secure application and data access to users. This course is designed specifically for learners who have limited or no previous NetScaler experience. In order to successfully complete this course, learners will have access to hands-on exercises within a virtual lab environment. This course is based on the Citrix NetScaler 10.0 product, but the skills and fundamental concepts learned are common to earlier product versions.
