Azure Virtual Desktops

Deliver safe and successful VDI

With a mixture of remote and hybrid office environments, the workplace landscape is changing exponentially. Using Azure Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (formerly known as Windows Virtual desktop), you can quickly allow your users to work remotely from wherever they are. They can use both personal or corporate devices to access corporate networks and applications securely.

Any device, Any app, Anywhere

Any device, Any app, Anywhere

Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) is a desktop-as-a-service solution that is powered by technology in Microsoft Azure. It enables your remote users to work effectively in a safe and secure environment with seamless access to all your organisation’s applications, services, data and collaboration points.

Our Any device, Any app, Anywhere mantra lets your employees access all business applications, including those that would previously only work on Windows enabled devices. Our AVD service removes restrictions on the types of devices and software your organisation uses, so you are free to buy and use the products and services you and your users want.

What are the differences between Azure Virtual Desktop and Windows 365?

Windows 365 Azure Virtual Desktop
Skills Does your IT staff have VDI experience? No VDI expertise required – deploy and manage using MEM or small business portal Use VDI, Azure and MEM expertise to customize and manage your desktop virtualisation environment
Pricing Do you need predictable monthly pricing, or do you prefer “pay as you go” consumption-based pricing? Predictable monthly pricing per user Consumption-based pricing based on actual use of Azure infrastructure
End user How many hours/days do end users access the virtual desktop? Can users share a virtual machine, or do they need a personal desktop? Personalised Windows 10 or 11 desktop experience for each user Pricing advantage for users with low utilisation, or pooled users per VM (multi-session)
Compliance Any regulatory or compliance requirements to consider? Do you need to control the location of cloud desktops for performance? Select the Azure datacenter region that best fits your needs. Azure has 100+ compliance certs, more than any other cloud. Select the Azure datacenter region that best fits your needs. Azure has 100+ compliance certs, more than any other cloud.

Remote app streaming Do you want to use remote app streaming for legacy application compatibility or to sell your software “as a service” from Azure? N/A New pricing model supports user access for SaaS apps
Hybrid cloud environment Do you need to keep running some desktop virtualization on-premises (existing environment, latency, data locality)? N/A Consider solutions with Citrix, VMware or Azure Stack HCI
