TRAINING: Microsoft VDI & Remote Desktop Services Hands-on-lab

VDI & Remote Desktop Services – Hands-on Lab

VDI & Remote Desktop Services Session Description
This overview event will give students a hands-on introduction to deploying and configuring a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure based on the Remote Desktop Services technologies includes with Windows Server 2008 R2.

Companies are increasingly turning to virtualization as the answer to their desktop challenges. Desktop virtualization involves decoupling the different computing layers and storing some or all of them in a data center. Through virtualization, employees can access their applications and data very safely over a network, minimizing the risk of data loss. On the IT side, virtualization accelerates deployment of new capabilities without needing to acquire new hardware and configure components. It also helps reduce application testing requirements and compatibility issues and simplifies disaster recovery and compliance.

By attending this course you will become familiar with new VDI capabilities included with Windows Server 2008 R2.

Who Should Attend?
This hands-on-lab event is for IT Professionals who work in organizations of all sizes and are concerned with the installation, configuration, and maintenance of a variety of server types. The actual job roles of the individuals may vary, but in general they will fall within the categories of Systems Administration, Server Administration, and Systems Engineering.

Prerequisites:
To get the most from this lab, you will be experienced (skill level 200+) with the technologies included in Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008.

Deploying Remote Desktop Session Host

This hands-on session walks you through the process of setting up a working Remote Desktop Services infrastructure. During this process, you create an Active Directory domain, install the Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) role service, and configure the Remote Desktop Connection client computer. This is the core infrastructure to build out a VDI Solution.

60-90 Minutes

Deploying Personal Virtual Desktops
This hands-on session walks you through the process of setting up a working personal virtual desktop accessible by using Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access). During this process, you will create a test deployment that includes the following components:

  • A Remote Desktop Virtualization Host (RD Virtualization Host) server
  • A Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RD Connection Broker) server
  • A Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server in redirection mode
  • A Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access) server
  • A virtual machine configured as a personal virtual desktop

60 – 90 Minutes

Deploying Virtual Desktop Pools
This hands-on session walks you through the process of setting up a working virtual desktop pool accessible by using Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access). During this process, you will create a test deployment that includes the following components:
