Start VM on Connect will help you optimize the costs of your deployment. Instead of predicting when the VMs need to be available for your users, give them the power to turn on a deallocated or stopped VM to meet flexible demand.


This new feature that will turn on a shutdown or deallocated VM in a Azure Virtual Desktop host pool when you a user tries to connect to it. You could always set policies to shut down idle VMs and save cost - but with the Start VM on connect capability you can now also ensure that those VMs are available to your users if needed.
