Windows Virtual Desktop is Microsoft’s Desktop-as-a-Service (Daas) platform that runs on Azure. It offers both desktop virtualization (VDI) as well as app virtualization capabilities. If you’ve never had the pleasure of working with an on-premises VDI solution, like Microsoft RDS, consider yourself lucky. If you have, you are in for a pleasant surprise. Either way, I think you are going to be amazed at how easy it is to setup and manage, whether you need to virtualize a full desktop experience, individual applications, or both. Even better, users can connect to published Windows desktops and applications, securely, from any device, using a native client or the Windows Virtual Desktop HTML5 web client.
