In the last episode of Tuesdays with Corey, We showed you what it was like to use the portal to provision and manage their virtualized desktop. In this episode - we're focusing on the client experience.  Corey Sanders, Corporate VP of Microsoft Solutions sits down with Scott Manchester, Principal Group PM on the Silicon, Graphics and Media team to talk about what new things are available in the current preview of Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) being offered in Azure.

 

Scott has brought along a Surface go to demonstrate the new signed Win32 app which allows you to install and use it - even when the device is in Windows S mode. Scott shows off what kind of performance you can get from an 8 GB of memory Surface Go using an LTE network, connecting to a 16 core NVidia GPU powerhouse VM in Azure.

What do you choose in Azure to build a WVD? I don't ee any options under Image for it.

hey @Jon Copeland - you have to have an azure account (paid or trial account) setup already, then you can go to https://aka.ms/WVDPreview to get more info on how to provision this environment, since it is in preview mode right now.

The preview sign-up link seems to go to an internal SharePoint link within Microsoft which errors out. Does that need to be updated?

WOW - good catch @Sayan Ghosh - I completely bunged up that one. Link corrected now. After you have a trail or your own Azure subscription setup - you can head over to https://aka.ms/WVDPreview for the setup procedures to join the preview.
