Citrix CCA-V XenApp and XenDesktop 7.1x Administration (1Y0-203) FAQs: Cost, Training, Value

What is Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop?

Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop are two solutions for providing something called virtualized application and virtualized desktop delivery. Virtualized app and desktop delivery is a method of running apps and desktops on centralized servers so that individual devices don't have to spend processing power and memory to run them. XenApp streams applications to users' devices and XenDesktop provides virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Both platforms improve management, security, scalability and flexibility.

What is a Citrix certification?

A certification is proof that you've mastered a certain skill or set of skills. Citrix certifications come from the company Citrix itself, which they award to you if you can pass a test that proves a certain level of familiarity or set of skills. Citrix offers many different certifications – some related to their software and some related to all the skills that are related to a certain job position.

How much does the Citrix CCA-V certification cost?

The Citrix CCA-V certification costs $200 to attempt. Before you attempt the CCA-V exam (1Y0-203), you should have a solid understanding of administering Microsoft Windows Server, Active Directory, TCP/IP administration and database management. The test itself covers Citrix architecture, deploying and administering the set-up of a XenApp or XenDesktop site, considerations for installing and registering virtualization resources, and provisioning and delivering app and desktop resources to end users.

Is it worth learning to administer XenApp and XenDesktop?

Learning how to administer and manage XenApp and XenDesktop is a valuable skill in today's tech-driven workplace, especially if you work for a company that relies on Citrix app or desktop delivery. Virtualization solutions are being used in more and more industries, enhancing security, scalability and flexibility. Knowing how to administer Citrix virtualization solutions makes you a more attractive hire for jobs related to providing virtual desktop infrastructure administration.

Who should take this course on Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop?

Anyone planning on earning a CCA-V certification from Citrix should take this course, as it's first and foremost a certification prep course. Additionally, any IT administrators or systems administration professionals whose job involves virtualization can benefit from understanding the Citrix process – even if your network doesn't rely on their products for delivering apps and desktops.
