PDT EDT CEST Speaker Name(s) Session Title Session Abstract
7:00 AM 10:00 AM 16:00 Ruben Spruijt & Benny Tritsch Opening Keynote Benny and Ruben will kick off this year’s event with a rundown of the most important driving factors in delivering a good remote user experience today. They’ll also share some results of the latest VDI Like a Pro survey.
7:20 AM 10:20 AM 16:20 Ruben Spruijt How Azure, AWS and GCP impact VDI & DaaS – storage performance and GPU options explained What does it really mean from a performance perspective to host traditional Windows applications and desktops in the cloud? You will learn why and how Azure, AWS and GCP deliver different storage performance and GPU options for VDI and DaaS. This unique information is key for solution design, sizing and managing VDI/DaaS performance expectations.
7:40 AM 10:40 AM 16:40 Benny Tritsch & Rody Kossen Why GPUs matter in EUC environments In this geeky session Benny and Rody will show real-world examples of what the benefits of GPUs are in remoting environments.
8:00 AM 11:00 AM 17:00 Break
8:10 AM 11:10 AM 17:10 Bram Wolfs Connection Experience Indicator for RDS & WVD In this session Bram will show you what the Connection Experience Indicator is and how you can configure and use it.
8:30 AM 11:30 AM 17:30 Ryan Ververs-Bijkerk The real race against round trip time on an NVIDIA powered machine in Azure This will be the race of the year on the legendary Dutch race track, Zandvoort. The race is against our worst enemy, round trip time. This session will show and explain the negative effect of round trip time when delivering remote graphics intense applications from the public cloud.
8:50 AM 11:50 AM 17:50 Rody Kossen & Patrick van den Born Remote graphic workloads and clients (2020 edition) As we add advanced GPUs to our virtual desktop environments, delivering the best user experience requires tweaking of remote display protocol settings like quality, compression, chroma subsampling, not to mention vendor-specific settings. But what about the different clients? In this intermediate-level session Rody Kossen and Patrick van den Born will show you the difference in user experience between clients and workloads. You’ll learn:

  • What the most common endpoints and remote display protocols are
  • Why the choice of client is dependent on the type of workload you run
  • Which display protocol settings can be used on which endpoints

For the 2020 edition we’ve updated the session with the latest Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, VMware Horizon and Xi Frame protocols. You can also expect details about Windows Virtual Desktop and clients. Playlist

9:10 AM 12:10 PM 18:10 Break
9:20 AM 12:20 PM 18:20 Thomas Poppelgaard NVIDIA and AMD GPUs in Azure WVD NVIDIA and AMD GPUs in Azure WVD
9:40 AM 12:40 PM 18:40 Jits Langedijk (NVIDIA) Update on NVIDIA GPUs for EUC Get up to speed with NVIDIA Virtual GPU. In this session you get to learn what NVIDIA has to offer for End User Computing solutions, for (mobile) workstations, datacenter, virtualization and cloud. Learn which GPU is best suited for your use case and if licensing applies to the use case.
10:00 AM 1:00 PM 19:00 Joe DaSilva (AMD) GPU partitioning in Azure NVv4 A quick peek under the hood of GPU partitioning as used in Microsoft’s Azure NVv4 instances based on AMD’s MxGPU technology.
10:20 AM 1:20 PM 19:20 Break
10:30 AM 1:30 PM 19:30 Benny Tritsch & Kristin Griffin RDP performance in GPU-accelerated WVD sessions Over the last months, Benny and Kristin conducted several GPU-focused remote end-user experience benchmarking tests in Azure. Learn about the latest results and lessons learned.
10:50 AM 1:50 PM 19:50 Esther Barthel & GO-EUC HTML5 redirection in remote sessions With Adobe stopping support for Flash by the end of the year and Citrix recommending to switch to HTML5 redirection, I was interested to test whether the HTML 5 Video redirection would save CPU resource consumption on the VDA. With the help of GO-EUC I was able to test the effect of HTML5 Redirection and now proudly present the preliminary results.
11:10 AM 2:10 PM 20:10 Thomas Poppelgaard NVIDIA Virtual Reality + EUC NVIDIA Virtual Reality in EUC environments.
11:30 AM 2:30 PM 20:30 Break
11:40 AM 2:40 PM 20:40 Johan van Amersfoort Linux and autonomous driving Linux and autonomous driving.
12:00 PM 3:00 PM 21:00 Brian Madden (VMware) VMware Horizon and GPUs Brian will give an update on how VMware Horizon and the Blast Extreme remoting protocols can leverage GPUs, including differences between the various GPU makers, impacts to sizing and performance, configuration options for various scenarios, etc.
12:20 PM 3:20 PM 21:20 Carsten Puls (Nutanix/Frame) Nutanix Xi Frame Remoting Protocol (FRP) explained ‘Run any application in a browser with great User Experience’ is one of the differentiators of Nutanix Xi Frame, a born in the cloud Desktop a as Service solution. What is required to deliver this great user experience from a browser? In this session you will learn what functionality Frame Remoting Protocol provides, what FRP makes unique and how FRP works in detail.
