Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) is comprehensive desktop virtualization and app virtualization service running on the Azure cloud. AVD comes packed with all the benefits of a physical desktop with Win10 with improved user experience, enhanced security, simplified management and reduced total cost of ownership. What’s more, you can access your desktop from anywhere and any device. The solution is powered by best-of-breed technologies such as Microsoft Azure, O365, Windows 10 and Teams. In addition, it is backed by a strong partner ecosystem consisting of Citrix, VMware and a host of third-party applications, tools and devices.
It offers the flexibility of the Azure cloud and cost savings that come with multi-session Windows 10. With AVD, Microsoft hosts the VMs and infrastructure roles in Azure to improve end-user experience compared to on-premise deployments. Businesses with both physical desktop environments or on-premise desktop virtualization solutions can migrate to WVD and avail the benefits of the solution.
