windows 10 & office 365 virtualization on azure

Occasional Contributor

what's the cheapest & easiest way to move a 365 organisation onto desktop virtualization on azure?

example; 

 

have 3 x 365 users, 3 x pcs, need them to be able to login to any of the pcs and have their own desktop environment, mirroring an on prem setup, just in the cloud

 

what os system would be needed on the devices & what type of azure vm is needed?

Hi @Charlie Jones

There are two options: using RDS (remote desktop services) or Citrix. I'd recommend the second option as it involves smooth integration and has many flexible options. It assumes you will be using XenApp (it has offers for both Win10 and Office365). Please find the links below that can be useful for further learning about these options:

Citrix (XenApp): https://www.citrix.com/global-partners/microsoft/azure.html
