This easy-to-follow introduction guide brings together all of the knowledge required to build a successful Virtual Desktop project that is secure, scalable, and highly available.
Through the course of this book, you will quickly progress from your first VDI lab environment to setting up a production-ready infrastructure that is robust, secure, and easy to manage. Going further, you will learn how to tune and maintain VDI once it is in production. Providing access for remote workers via any supported device and use of certificates is another important aspect covered in the book. If users depend on VDI, then it must be more resilient; you will learn that this can be done by addressing each of the roles of the VDI infrastructure.
You will also understand the wider aspects of Windows Server and the associated tools required for a complete production solution, such as Hyper-V, certificates, and Active Directory, making this book a one-stop reference guide for a complete project.
This comprehensive, example-based guide on VDI with its practical and easy to follow approach will serve as a reference that you will want to come back to again and again for guidance.
Who this book is for
If you are an IT professional working on desktop deployment or server management with some exposure to Windows or Windows Server, this book is for you. VDI requires a lot of infrastructure, so some core knowledge is required, for example, the basics of Active Directory, Group Policy, DNS, and DHCP.
