To adapt to the social changes of our new reality, organizations have been rethinking their IT infrastructure to provide a safe and secure remote work environment for all of their employees. Increasingly, organizations are turning to a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to give their users a seamless experience – whether in-office or remote.

Microsoft is a leader in the VDI space with Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) - the next-generation of virtual desktop delivery. AVD is a desktop and app virtualization service that runs on the cloud. It offers a scalable and flexible desktop virtualization environment within an Azure subscription without having to run any additional gateway servers. It is also the only VDI that delivers simplified management, multi-session Windows 10, optimizations for Office 365 ProPlus, and support for Remote Desktop Services (RDS).

With Azure Virtual Desktop, your employees can work almost anywhere using the apps they rely on, while you benefit from optimized costs, powerful security, and ease of management.
