Azure Virtual Desktop Deployment

Principles, Session Host and Remote Apps Deployment Procedures and Resource Accessing Techniques of Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop

Azure Virtual Desktop on Microsoft Azure is a desktop and app virtualization service that runs on the cloud.

Azure Virtual Desktop combines the scale, security, and cost benefits of Azure and Microsoft 365 for a secure remote desktop from virtually anywhere. It manages the infrastructure and brokering components, while customers manage their own desktop host virtual machines (VMs) and clients. Microsoft manages the Remote Connection Gateway, and Connection Broker services as part of Azure.

Here’s what you can do when you run Azure Virtual Desktop on Azure:

  • Set up a multi-session Windows 11 or Windows 10 deployment that delivers a full Windows experience with scalability
  • Present Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise and optimize it to run in multi-user virtual scenarios
  • Bring your existing Remote Desktop Services (RDS) and Windows Server desktops and apps to any computer
  • Virtualize both desktops and apps
  • Manage desktops and apps from different Windows and Windows Server operating systems with a unified management experience

Azure Virtual Desktop platform is the most cost-effective and simple solution for educational institutions, training centers, corporate organizations for everyday computing and implementing hybrid cloud workspaces or cloud-based labs.
