Performance bottlenecks in Azure Virtual Desktop for Heavy Workloads


I have the following Virtual Desktop setup for my organization. However, our end-users feel so laggy user experience very recently. The whole idea is to make sure a better user experience while keeping the running cost low. Could someone please advise if the approach I have is correct or any strategies to optimize the workload? 


- NCasT4_v3-series x 4 instances - 60 users onboard ( 20 user concurrent) - 15 hours


- Configuration is for each VM instance only 6 maximum concurrent users


  • The desktop users are using the following software:
  • AutoDesk AEC Suit - AutoDesk Revit (C)
  • Grasshopper
  • Enscape
  • Office 365
  • Autodesk BIM 360
  • Adobe Cloud Creative Suite
  • Sketchup Pro
  • Teams
  • Zoom


In one year's time, the number of onboarded users will grow up to 250.

The total maximum per-user cost that we can bear is $60 per user per month.


Please advice. Thanks!
