Windows Virtual Desktop for Microsoft Azure
Microsoft has announced the introduction of Windows Virtual Desktop, which is a cloud-based service that is optimized to work with a variety of other tools to provides users with the ability to quickly scale programs and meet compliance standards. Traditionally, virtual desktops have been too complex and expensive for widespread adoption. With the Windows Virtual Desktop, Microsoft has solved these longstanding challenges and created a tool that is perfect for IT specialists and users alike. Here is what you need to know about the Windows Virtual Desktop:
- If you are still making the transition to Windows 10, this service will continue to support legacy apps and provide free extended security updates as you continue to update your ecosystem.
- All of the data loss prevention and security management tools that come with Microsoft 365 are already fully integrated so you don’t have to put any additional work into making sure that your security is up to par.
- You will have the ability to virtualize both desktops and apps for maximum flexibility and seamless integration for multiple users.
- Microsoft views virtualization as the future of business, which means that users can expect ongoing updates and expansion of features as the company continues to receive valuable feedback and works to meet customer demands.
- Microsoft is already partnering with major innovators like Citrix, People Tech Group, Liquidware and others to extend Windows Virtual Desktop capabilities and allow for more integrations.
If you have an existing Azure subscription, all you have to do is sign up for Windows Virtual Desktop to begin designing and deploying virtual apps and desktops. You will only be charged for additional storage and compute consumption related to the virtual machines.
