Azure Virtual Desktop is a comprehensive desktop and app virtualization service running in the cloud. Deploy and scale your Windows desktops and apps on Azure in minutes , and get built-in security and compliance features.
It’s the only virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) that delivers simplified management, multi-session Windows 10, optimisations for Microsoft 365 apps for enterprise and support for Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environments.
With Azure Virtual Desktop, you can set up a scalable and flexible environment:
