Register Now for Petri’s GET-IT Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Conference


As more organizations look to consolidate infrastructure in the cloud, Petri is hosting a 1-day conference in September where industry experts will guide you through the technologies and best practices for deploying VDI in the cloud and migrating an on-premises VDI to Azure.

Conference sessions and speakers

The lineup of speakers for the conference includes Microsoft Certified Trainer, Dean Ellerby, who will be kicking things off with a look at the differences between Windows 365 and Azure Virtual Desktop, and how to choose the best solution for your organization’s needs.

Neil McLouglin, who has plenty of experience with Azure Virtual Desktop in a previous life working for Microsoft, will be hosting a session on the best practices you should follow for modernizing an existing on-premises VDI by migrating it to Azure. Including making sure you adequately plan for managing identity, storage, applications, host sizing, and much more.

Travis Roberts, a Cloud Infrastructure Architect at RBA Consulting, Microsoft MVP and MCT, will be hosting a session on how to provide a consistent user experience with FSLogix, whether users are logging into persistent or shared desktops. FSLogix is a technology that was acquired by Microsoft and is now part of Azure Virtual Desktop. It provides a portable user profile container that moves with the user, allowing organizations to configure customized, user-based access to applications.

Vadim Vladimirskiy will be looking at strategies you can use to reduce the cost of Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) using Nerdio Manager for Enterprise. And from what I’ve heard, Nerdio’s product is a complete game changer for organizations looking to implement AVD.

The day will round up with a session on securing Azure Virtual Desktop using Conditional Access policies and multifactor authentication. As part of the proceedings, we’ll also be hosting a roundtable event where our conference experts will discuss the most important things you need to consider when choosing a VDI solution in the cloud.
