IGEL Academy: IGEL Certified Professional online training

The IGEL Academy room will be a dedicated space where DISRUPTors (I didn’t just coin that term did I?) can take a break from all the action, sit down, and take a course or exam on IGEL Academy. There will be plenty of plugs to power personal devices as well as a small complement of IGEL devices that can be used. Forgot headphones? That’s OK, we’ll have a supply of those as well. Got a question? No problem, as there will always be an IGEL tech present while the room is open for use!

Breakout Session I


Nutanix Frame is the only born in cloud DaaS solution that runs on-premises powered by Nutanix and multiple clouds from Microsoft, Amazon, and Google. Frame provides simple yet very powerful access to Windows applications and desktops through a browser or as FrameApp for IGEL OS. Join Ruben Spruijt, Sr. Technologist and former Frame CTO as he will show and tell what makes Frame so powerful, easy to use and how Frame is different than other DaaS and VDI solutions. You’ll see how easy it is to deliver a great experience for users and will learn why Nutanix Frame and IGEL are better together – like Dutch bitterballen with mustard. It will be an awesome, fun and demo packed session!

In this session you will learn:

  • How Cloud Workspace Management Suite deploys and manages coud workspaces created with WVD on Azure
  • The value to the partner to create a cloud workspace solution using CloudJumper & IGEL in concert
  • Why end users are most secure in the cloud, and how CloudJumper and IGEL support secure EUC cloud environments
  • A technical demonstration of the Cloud Workspace Management Suite.


2:30pm - 3:15pm

Breakout Session II

Come see first-hand:

  • How to deploy WVD with the coming Azure Portal
  • Microsoft Teams support
  • Azure Storage optimizations
  • MSIX app attach
  • Linux SDK for WVD with IGEL endpoint

Breakout Session IV

You’ll learn how every project can be broken down into 4 iterative phases that everyone on your team can understand:

  1. Understand
  2. Plan
  3. Change
  4. Maintain

You’ll walk through a full lifecycle of a project that followed this methodology… and one that didn’t. You decide which method you’d rather follow!

Breakout Session V

When deploying VDI, the end point is often overlooked as organizations focus on brokers, protocols, and compute/storage infrastructure. However, the administrative capabilities of the end point and the user experience at the edge are even more critical to proper deployment. The session will focus on why a financial organization selected IGEL as their next-gen end point OS for cloud workspaces with VMware Horizon. (Presented by VMware/IGEL partner – Entisys360)

In this session, you will learn:

  • About the criteria used to select IGEL
  • Optimizations for IGEL & VMware Horizon
  • Lessons learned deploying IGEL for a financial organization


12:15pm - 1pm

Breakout Session VI

The latest advancements with Windows Server and Windows 10 have become mainstream in modern End User Computing deployments. In this session, you will gain knowledge and first-hand lessons learned from the world’s largest Horizon Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH) environment, leveraging NVIDIA GRID vGPU Virtual Apps (vApps) for 15,000 concurrent user sessions. Find and avoid some of the most common Horizon VDI design and implementation pitfalls when delivering mission-critical services to 30K users, powered by NVIDIA vGPU Virtual PC. Gain useful insights into the entire VMware end user computing technology stack, including Instant Clones, App Volumes, Dynamic Environment Manager (formerly UEM), Unified Access Gateway, and Workspace ONE Access (formerly vIDM). To make this vision a reality, the infrastructure design included Hyper-Converged Infrastructure and 1,000+ NVIDIA Tesla GPUs deployed across hundreds of hosts, dozens of clusters, and multiple data centers in an Active-Active globally load-balanced topology. Are you ready to take the plunge at scale with VMware Horizon, NVIDIA, and IGEL? You don’t want to miss this session!
