Product Information

As organizations around the world evolve to modern and hybrid working scenarios, it has become vital for businesses to implement remote working strategies that increase business resilience, including desktop and app virtualization. Azure Virtual Desktop is a flexible cloud virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) platform that helps enable users to work securely and productively from virtually any location, while also simplifying IT management and reducing infrastructure costs.
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) refers to the use of virtualization and virtual machines (VMs) to provide and manage virtual desktops and remote apps. Users can access these VMs remotely from supported devices and remote locations, and all the processing is completed on the host server. Users typically connect to their desktop instances through a connection broker. This
broker is essentially a software layer that acts as the intermediary between the user and server, enabling the orchestration of sessions to virtual desktops or published applications. VDI is usually deployed in an organization’s datacenter and managed by their IT department. Typical on-premises providers include Citrix, VMware, and Microsoft (Remote Desktop Services). VDI
can be hosted on-premises or in the cloud. Cloud-based VDI can offer reduced infrastructure investments with all the core benefits that the cloud provides.
Azure Virtual Desktop is a desktop and app virtualization service that runs on Microsoft Azure. Azure Virtual Desktop can be accessed from any device—Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and Linux—with applications that you can use to access remote desktops and applications, including multi-session Windows 10 and Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise. You can also use most modern browsers to access Azure Virtual Desktop–hosted experiences.
Typically, Azure Virtual Desktop is easier to deploy and manage than traditional Remote Desktop Services (RDS) or VDI environments. You don’t have to provision and manage servers and server roles such as the gateway, connection broker, diagnostics, load balancing, and licensing.
The following depicts a simple example of an Azure Virtual Desktop workspace with two host pools. Host pool A has two application groups: Desktop and RemoteApp. These resources are shared (pooled) across the sales team. Host pool B has a Desktop application group with personal desktops for an engineering team:
