Citrix XenDesktop

Description: What is desktop virtualization? Desktop virtualization is a set of mainstream technologies that optimize the delivery of desktops, applications and data to users. The operating system, apps and data are decoupled from the underlying PC hardware and moved to the datacenter, where they can be centrally managed and secured. Instead of juggling thousands of static desktop images, IT can manage and update the OS and apps once, from one location, then deliver desktops and apps that are customized to meet the performance, security and mobility requirements of each individual user. This five-day course is for existing or prospective Citrix IT Academy instructors. It prepares Instructors to setup and deliver the Citrix XenDesktop Administration course and provides information on how to become a Citrix IT Academy. This course provides the foundation necessary for administrators to effectively centralize and manage desktops in the datacenter and deliver them as a service to users anywhere. Instructors will learn how to build a virtual desktop environment using Citrix XenDesktop, assign virtual desktops to users and customize the user experience through policies. This course also provides instruction on how to build a Provisioning services farm to enable single-image desktop management, and how to host virtual machines on different client devices using Citrix XenClient. Prerequisites: Instructors attending this course must have a minimum of MS Windows Server certification, or equivalent experience, and complete the XenDesktop 5.5 and XenApp 6.5 Technical Overviews (one-hour each) prior to attending this course. Instructor: Professor John Vail is a faculty member of the Department of Network Engineering Technology housed in the Advanced Technology Center at Florida State College at Jacksonville, Fl. He is a Subject Matter Expert with the Cyber Security & Information Systems Information Analysis Center, and his most recent speaking engagements were the 2012 North American IPv6 Summit in Denver, CO, the 24th International Conference on College Teaching and Learning, and the 2013 E-Learn - World Conference on E-Learning in Las Vegas, NV. He is currently the Primary Investigator on iNoVATE – A Network Virtualization Project grant awarded by the National Science Foundation. Mr. Vail is additionally researching student engagement in the classroom. He graduated from East Carolina University with an M.S. in Technology Systems with dual concentrations in Information Security and Computer Networking Management. His thesis was titled: “Small Business Information Security." Mr. Vail also has over 20 years of experience as a project and operations manager.

Our exciting morning will launch with a moderated keynote conversation with Dr. Joel Gurin, Director of OpenData500, the first comprehensive study of U.S. companies using government open data. The subsequent plenary panel will discuss government agency experiences with Big Data and what this means for the energy or data science entrepreneur. Breakout sessions will analyze the current energy landscape in a variety of sub-sectors, delving into detail on the current and future relevance of Big Data in these sub-sectors. A final ideation session will challenge the audience to brainstorm issues in the energy industry that offer an opportunity for data-driven solutions. Registration is free for all participants and on a first-come first-serve basis, with a waitlist upon reaching venue capacity. If you’ve registered and will no longer be able to attend, please change your reservation to allow those on the waitlist to take your place. Questions? Contact aaasbigdata@gmail.com.
