Capabilities include the ability to publish as many host pools as needed to accommodate a diverse set of IT workloads.
CloudJumper makes the migration to Windows Virtual Desktop fast and simple with a new no cost special offer, that for the first time, allows administrators to try the powerful deployment and management capabilities of the Cloud Workspace® platform for free. CWMS V5.3 by CloudJumper integrates with WVD APIs to orchestrate speedy implementation by managed service providers and enterprise customers. The virtual desktops are deployed within Azure cloud infrastructure and used for compute, storage, diagnostics, advanced networking and connection brokering to run workloads at scale, while reducing desktop management, infrastructure and support costs.
