Transforming the Windows Virtual Desktop Experience

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) helps address specific business and security needs, including security and regulation, the elastic workforce, specific employees, specialized workloads, and business continuity. VDI works both on-prem and in the cloud. As illustrated below, the cloud option is customizable with minimum capital expenditure.

How Does VDI Work?

There are three ways to access a virtual desktop: (1) Native Windows win32 client application, (2) via Microsoft UWP Client Application (Microsoft Remote Desktop, Citrix Workspace), and (3) using a Web Browser (Chrome, IE, Safari).

What is Windows Virtual Desktop?

Windows Virtual Desktop, a desktop and app virtualization service that runs on the cloud, is the most sought-after virtual desktop experience, delivered on Azure. This industry-leading product provides the only multi-session Windows 10 experience, enables optimizations for Office 365 ProPlus, migrates Windows Server (RDS) desktop and apps, and deploys and scales in minutes.
