At this point in the book, we have implemented a fully functioning XenDesktop architecture made up of the core components, along with the additional features in terms of security and performance.

With hundreds or thousands of hosts to configure and machines to deploy, configuring all the components manually could be difficult. As for the previous XenDesktop releases, and also with the XenDesktop 7.6 version, you can find an integrated set of PowerShell modules. With its use, IT technicians are able to reduce the time required to perform management tasks by the creation of PowerShell scripts, which will be used to deploy, manage, and troubleshoot at scale the greatest part of the XenDesktop components.

Working with PowerShell instead of the XenDesktop GUI will give you more flexibility in terms of what kind of operations to execute, having a set of additional features to use during the infrastructure creation and configuration phases.
