XenDesktop 5 Quick PoC Kit for Hyper-V version 1.0

The XenDesktop 5 Quick PoC Kit for Hyper-V has been created for being used as a tool for Proof of Concepts and is intended for validating desktop delivery with XenDesktop 5 and Microsoft Hyper-V within a short time period. The kit contains pre-configured  virtual machines with step by step documentation for a quick and simple setup of the required infrastructure components and can be used for Proof of Concepts that run either in an isolated environment or can even be integrated into any pre-production environment. The average setup time varies between 2-4 hours. This kit now includes XenApp 6 for hosting applications delivered to the desktops. This kit is intended for use on Windows 2008 R2 with Hyper-V and builds out virtual desktops using Machine Creation Services, a new feature of XenDesktop 5. The virtual machines and associated documentation for integrating Provisioning Services (with a pre-built vDisk) will be added and posted in Q2 2011.
