DISRUPT 2020: Taking a Real-World Look at Windows Virtual Desktop

Simplify and Scale Your Desktop and App Virtualization Environment on Azure

When used together with IGEL OS and IGEL Universal Management Suite, Windows Virtual Desktop is changing the game for cloud workspaces. For customers that want end user computing (EUC) that’s simple, dynamically scalable, secure, centrally managed and cost effective, there’s no better combination than IGEL’s Linux-based edge OS and Windows Virtual Desktop.

Attend our presentation, “A Real-World Look at Windows Virtual Desktop” during DISRUPT 2020, Nashville and Munich to discover why. Together with Microsoft Senior Product Marketing Manager Jon Federico, I’ll be sharing how Windows Virtual Desktop can help you simplify and scale your desktop and app virtualization environment on Microsoft Azure.

We’ll be showing live demos and offering best practices for how to deploy Windows Virtual Desktop. We’ll also demonstrate Windows Virtual Desktop’s Microsoft Teams support and top ways to optimize Azure storage. Further, we’ll show best ways to perform MSIX app attach techniques for the best user experience.

The Windows Virtual Desktop Linux SDK makes it easy to support IGEL OS-powered devices, and even easier to fuel the shift of Windows to the cloud. That’s why IGEL is a supporting vendor for Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop value-added partner program “early adopters” and IGEL has been named as a recommended Microsoft ecosystem partner for customers deploying Windows Virtual Desktop at scale.
