Most of our use cases for Azure VMs have been to spin up a VM for RDS and host a desktop app (e.g. QuickBooks) so that our clients with multiple users can access it from anywhere.  We've been told by multiple sources that WVD will be cheaper but from the examples I've seen WVD still uses the same VM sizes, storage options, etc. that are already available with the Server 2019 VMs.  Is the only cost savings of utilizing WVD that we would not need to have RDS CALs or is there something I'm missing that would make setting up WVD instead of a Server 2019 RDS VM a lot cheaper?

 

Thanks!

@Benjaguy : Hey! We have calculation examples and answers to your questions here on our landing page: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/virtual-desktop/

 

General rule of thumb is when you deploy Windows Server with the service RDSCALs still apply. When using Windows 10 multi-session no additional RDSCALs required. Pricing calculator is going to be available later this year. 

@Eva Seydl meaning, there isn't expected to be an additional cost associated with the PaaS part of WVD service that facilitates all of this? W10 through M365 or the like, plus the Azure VM's to run them on?
