Windows Virtual Desktop
Windows Virtual Desktop is a cloud-based service announced this week that allows users to run a version of Windows 10 through Microsoft Azure.
The service delivers “a multi-user Windows 10 experience, optimised for Office 365 ProPlus and includes free Windows 7 Extended Security Updates”, according to a company blog post.
Microsoft added that the offering was “the most scalable service to deploy and manage Windows virtual machines, using Azure for compute, storage, rich diagnostics, advanced networking, connection brokering, and gateway.”
“You no longer need to host, install, configure, and manage these components yourself—so you can deploy and scale in minutes.
