Microsoft Inspire 2018:Partner business opportunities hosting Windows desktops and apps on Azure

First published on CloudBlogs on Jul 17, 2018 by Enterprise Mobility + Security Team 
Editor's note 7/25/2018: This post has been updated with the current status of RDmi Private Preview application window. Deployment of hosted Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environments in Microsoft Azure allows Partners to create compelling services for their customers. At Microsoft Inspire 2018, we will demonstrate how partners can build on RDS technology in Windows Server 2016 today and continue to grow their businesses by leveraging upcoming improvements in both Windows Server 2019 and the next generation Remote Desktop Services modern infrastructure (RDmi). Introduced at Inspire 2017 , RDmi will enable Microsoft’s Partners to reduce the cost and complexity of hosted Windows desktop and application deployments in Azure by using Microsoft Azure services like Azure Active Directory for authentication and enable enhanced security features like conditional access, multi-factor authentication, and Intelligent Security Graph . Together, these investments offer more secure, scalable, and efficient RDS solutions.
