Get access to Windows virtual Desktop

The "Windows Virtual Desktop" solution, which is exclusively available on Microsoft Azure Cloud, is based on Windows Server Remote Desktop Services, but where most of the infrastructure is maintained by Microsoft as a PaaS solution. As we know it with Exchange and SharePoint Online.

With Windows Virtual Desktop, your users can get a true Windows 10 multi-session setup comparable to the traditional "Terminal Server" where multiple users typically share a computer resource. The unique thing about WVD is that now users can get a real Windows 10 Enterprise with all Windows 10 features as well as optimized for Office 365 ProPlus and FSLogix.

We see that Windows Virtual Desktop can replace solutions such as Citrix, VMware Horizon and Windows Remote Desktop Services. WVD is compatible with the classic RDSH Windows Server Sessions Hosts and Windows 10 VDI which makes it possible to migrate directly to Windows Virtual Desktop.

Windows Virtual Desktop is available directly on Windows, MAC, and Linux through the client application or web client. Access to desktops and applications is secured by modern standards without incoming firewall openings or VPN connections, but instead uses encrypted outbound traffic and Conditional Access which is based on intelligent identity driven security.
