Welcome to version 1.0 of the Official Guide to Citrix XenClient: Reference Design, Best Practices, and Additional Resources Guide. 

The first thing you need to understand about this guide and XenClient is they are both 1.0 and Citrix has been very clear in their statements and positing that XenClient 1.0 Service Pack 1 is geared toward test, evaluation, pilots, and proof of concepts. The goal is for you to get familiar with what this technology can do for you and your organization. In keeping with that goal the design, best practices, and additional resources found in this guide are limited to this scope. In the future, this guide will be upgraded as Citrix releases future versions.
 
My goal for this guide is to provide you with the knowledge required to understand the architectural requirements and configuration best practices to successfully deploy and evaluate the new Citrix XenClient 1.0 Service Pack 1 client virtualization solution. This includes design requirements, best practices, and links to additional resources.
 
I’ve also tried to organize this guide keeping as close as possible with the same flow a Citrix XenClient deployment would follow. However, this guide does not include step-by-step instructions, yet. In version 1.0 of this guide, I’m not trying to recreate the wheel by reproducing a lot of content that is easily available in other locations in order to deliver this guide to you quicker. In future releases these sections will be ‘built out’ to provide more comprehensive instructions and resources.
 
To me, client-side hypervisors are the future! I’m excited and I hope this guide will help you to get to know what a technology such as XenClient can do for you! This is amazing stuff and brings the power and promise of virtualization to the end-points, something we seem to forget when talking about VDI and other related technologies. This guide is truly a labor of love so expect more and more of it!

I hope you find this useful!
