I'm a software engineer and I'm wondering what it would cost to use WVD so I can work from home sometimes.   My company has an enterprise office 365 subscription but I don't know what sort.  Supposing I wanted to use WVD for 20 hours a week at home (either Win 10 or Win 7) to do coding, maybe occasional compiling, writing documents with WORD, OneNote, email, github, and web browsing, how would I work out what the monthly cost of this would be?  Most of it is non CPU intensive.

 

Do I need a VPN or is the client server communication adequately protected without one?

@alphabeta: We have pricing examples here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/virtual-desktop/ . A pricing calculator will be made available later this year. 

 

Communication is protected and your company might decide to add additional measures depending on policies.
