We are excited to announce the general availability of Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) for Microsoft 365 Business Subscribers. WVD provides the full Windows 10 desktop experience on any device or browser, enabling your employees to be securely productive from anywhere.
What is Windows Virtual Desktop?
Not all employees sit in an office, use only one device, or always work from secure locations. As a result, many companies see an advantage in delivering the desktop experience for some of their workforce using virtualization. However, server-based desktop virtualization has limitations in user experience and compatibility. As a result, it cannot support a true modern desktop. Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) service takes away the complexity of running the infrastructure needed for a virtual desktop environment and replaces it with a service. Administrators no longer need to worry about brokers, gateways, and web servers; all of this complexity is replaced by the WVD service.
Windows Virtual Desktop is a comprehensive desktop and app virtualization service running on Azure. It’s the only virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) that delivers simplified management, multi-session Windows 10, optimizations for Office, and support for Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environments. With WVD, your employees can access any remote app on any device, while you can maintain central management & security of your users’ desktops. Learn more about WVD in this Mechanics Video
