Is 2020 the Year of VDI?

We interview Jed Ayres, CEO of IGEL, about the magic of IGEL OS, how their Disrupt events went virtual, and what's in store for 2021.

We chat with Jed Ayres, CEO of IGEL, creators of the next-gen edge OS for cloud workspaces, to learn how 2020's challenges have changed the game for IGEL and their customers. We also talk about what's next for IGEL and the EUC industry.
