Enabling and scaling IT infrastructure for remote working is in the minds of many IT and business leaders. Microsoft’s Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) allows the Windows operating system and your corporate applications to be run and managed in the cloud, instead of being installed on the user’s device.
This virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) gives your users a multi-session Windows 10 desktop in the cloud. It is highly scalable, always up to date, has optimisations for Office 365, and has support for Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environments on Microsoft's Azure cloud. You can deploy and scale your Windows desktops and apps on Azure in minutes, and get built-in security and compliance features.
Organisations looking to quickly virtualise and deploy modern and legacy desktop apps to the cloud should consider Azure WVD as part of their IT strategy for the 'new normal'.
Due to the crisis, we had to find a way to support a rapid shift away from ‘business as usual.’ Windows Virtual Desktop helps us manage a variety of workstreams without stress and lets us offer familiar apps to our users in a cost-effective, transparent manner.
