Azure RemoteApp has two different packaging options . One option at $10/user/month and another at $15/user/month. By the time you get the discounts you usually get from Microsoft, many of you will be paying ~$7/user/month for this amazing solution.
Think about that: You can upload your Windows apps and make them globally available to all your users on all of their devices at a very low price. In comparison, VMWare and AWS have pricing options that start at $25 and go well above $50/user/month.This kind of functionality is not only backed by Azure’s SLA (and supported by Microsoft Support, offering the full scalability and security of the Azure cloud), but it will also be a focus of continuous improvement as we listen to your feedback and continue innovating based on your needs. These are really important points to call out. We back all our service offerings with a financially backed SLA. If we do not meet our SLA we do not expect you to pay us. VMware and AWS are not willing to offer this level of guaranteed SLA. This fact really begs the question of whether or not they understand the needs of the Enterprise and the level of service you require. And because we have implemented this as a modern cloud service we will be continually updating the capabilities. The post on the Remote Desktop Services blog noted above has a perspective on the value of Azure RemoteApp that I think is pretty insightful for the IT Pros that will be using it, and the CIO’s who need to see the concrete results:
