July 2020 Meetup: Donna Ryan (MVP) – Windows Virtual Desktop

By nick.moseley

Friday, July 24th, 3:00pm – 5:00pm MST (GMT-6)
Advanced Registration is Recommended

If you have been considering deploying Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD), have evaluated it in the past, or have questions on how it all works, this is a session you won’t want to miss!

WVD provides an easy solution to provision desktops and applications to end users remotely. But while the process is easy, it’s not quite “just push the button” easy. This session will cover the prerequisite requirements to deploy WVD, basic and advanced methods of host provisioning to ensure enough resources are available, and application and desktop deployment techniques to keep end users productive.
