Microsoft Ignite 2019: A Recap of an Epic Week


Microsoft Ignite 2019 is in the books. If you didn’t go, you missed an epic Microsoft-sponsored educational opportunity in Orlando presented by industry experts and attended by more than 25,000 people. You read that right, more than 25,000 attendees. If you weren’t able to attend, all may not be lost – read on.

As expected, Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) was one of the key technology areas of emphasis. Microsoft Ignite not only demonstrated the scale of WVD but also the customer and partner enthusiasm for it. CloudJumper’s booth was swamped with customer interest and questions.

Even if you missed the sessions, here are a couple links that should interest you.

Visit Microsoft Ignite 2019 on-demand sessions to access video from the 1,500+ sessions as well as the same hands-on labs that were available at Microsoft Ignite 2019. Even better, if you are particularly interested in WVD sessions, like us, then just type “windows virtual desktop” into the search to filter down to the 233 sessions that mention WVD in some way.

Microsoft Ignite 2019 is going on the road, in a much smaller form, and it may be coming to a city near you. If you want an in-person experience, the roadshow will be the best way to have access to expert speakers presenting the latest in Microsoft cloud technologies, developer tools and more.

Remember that there is a rich ecosystem of WVD partners that can add immediate value toward deployment, management, monitoring, application discovery, compatibility, printing, hardware and more. CloudJumper is proud to be a Microsoft partner for WVD.

CloudJumper’s solution starts with a simple WVD front-end that boils down the hundreds of complex deployment options into just a few questions. Our automation, orchestration and workflow engines then create a custom WVD environment to allow you to manage WVD VMs by the hundreds and thousands, all through a simple web interface. In just a few clicks you can be up and running. If we had to describe our solution as a math equation, it would read WVD to the power of CloudJumper.
