Today we launched our XenDesktop 7.5 Windows Azure Pack Gallery Image Tech Preview as a download from Citrix.com.
This is open to customers and prospective customers and is intended to simplify and automate XenDesktop deployments for large enterprises and service providers who leverage Windows Azure Pack, System Center, and the Microsoft Cloud OS stack.
If you are not already familiar; a Windows Azure Pack Gallery Image is a standard, reusable, and sharable artifact that allows customers of a large enterprise or service provider to self-serve provision virtual machine roles as a repeatable configuration.
The current XenDesktop specific Gallery Image can installs all XenDesktop roles.
We are also looking for feedback regarding where to take this next. So as always, you can add comments here, or find me on Twitter, or email me directly.
This is a continuation of similar efforts to streamline XenDesktop deployments that we rolled out with the XenDesktop System Center Templates launched for XenDesktop 7.1 late last year and for XenDesktop 7.5 in the last couple of months.
