What is new in Windows Virtual Desktop for November 2021


Here's what changed in November 2021:


Azure Virtual Desktop for Azure Stack HCI


Azure Virtual Desktop for Azure Stack HCI is now in public preview. This feature is for customers who need desktop virtualization for apps that have to stay on-premises for performance and data security reasons. To learn more, see our blog post and the Azure Virtual Desktop for Azure Stack HCI documentation.


Autoscale public preview


We're pleased to introduce the new autoscale feature, which lets you stop or start session hosts automatically based on a schedule you set. Autoscale lets you optimize infrastructure costs by configuring your shared or pooled desktops to only charge for the resources you actually use. You can learn more about the autoscale feature by reading our documentation and watching our Azure Academy video.


Azure Virtual Desktop starter kit for Power Automate


Your organization can now use the Azure Virtual Desktop starter kit to manage its robotic process automation (RPA) workloads. Learn more by reading our documentation.


Tagging with Azure Virtual Desktop


We recently released new documentation about how to configure tags for Azure Virtual Desktop to track and manage costs. For more information, see Tag Azure Virtual Desktop resources.
