Citrix App Layering Boot Camp (06/15/2018)

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


App Layering Boot Camp

XenTegra is inviting you to participate in our one-day Boot Camp, to learn and gain valuable hands-on experience with a wide range of core features that the Citrix App Layering offers. Citrix App Layering makes it easier to manage your Windows applications. App Layering can help you manage your applications and operating systems regardless of which hypervisor or provisioning service you use. At XenTegra we are committed to providing the Citrix and Microsoft resources necessary to keep your skills current.

If you are interested in hosting one of our Citrix workshops at your location, please contact us.

Workshop Details

App Layering separates the management of your operating system and apps from your infrastructure. With App Layering, you can install each of your apps and operating system patches one time, and then use them as part of any image you deploy. You can publish layered images as open standard virtual disks that you can use in any environment. This allows you to maintain a single Windows installation, and a single copy of each application, that you use for all of your images across all of your virtual environments.

  1. App Layering wraps each of your applications in a layer, and stores the layers as virtual disks.
  2. You can create any combination of these app layers and an OS layer as part of a layered image, and publish it to your target platform.
  3. You can install an application or operating system once, and deploy it as part of any number of images.

During the Boot Camp, students will complete labs in the following areas:


  • Overview of Citrix App Layering
  • Overview of install options for Citrix App Layering
  • Platform Layer Labs with MCS and PVS
  • Deploy Layer Labs with MCS and PVS
