The use of Windows Virtual Desktop(WVD) tripled in the first quarter of 2020 as organizations deployed virtual desktops and apps on Azure to enable secure remote work. However, even with this increase, most people still do not understand what Windows Virtual Desktop really is. WVD is a set of technologies from Microsoft Azure that enables IT professionals and Managed Service Providers to create Windows 10 virtual desktops in Azure. So essentially, you get a full desktop experience, customized to fit YOUR needs!

WVD uses a Windows 10 multi-user operating system, which allows multiple concurrent users to use a single Azure virtual machine as a desktop. Each user gets to maintain their own identity, as their profiles are handled independently of the virtual machine that serves as the user’s desktop. 

WVD can be accessed from any internet-connected device no matter what operating system, by using an installed Remote Desktop Client app. This is where BYOD comes into play. You can use a tablet, a laptop, a smart phone, and it does not matter the brand.

WVD rights are included at no additional charge with multiple Windows 10 subscriptions including Microsoft 365 and Windows 10 Enterprise.  Windows Virtual Desktop is right for a business of any size, especially ones that have remote workers.
