Windows Virtual Desktop without a golden image

Thumbnail Markus Lintuala

VDI-solutions are broadly created with a golden image model. In 2020 we are encouraged to create the golden image with image builders such as Hashicorp Packer or Azure Image Builder. If you can wait only couple of moments the creation of new host, you can implement everything dynamically without golden image by using Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Intune or ConfigMgr). Save time and get better service for end customers with the right choice of the deployment method. This session tells secrets and out-of-box thinking why and how to implement dynamic host deployment without the traditional golden image.
