Customer Testimonials

“Worth every penny! This product makes AVD easy to manage with all its robust features. It also clearly shows you everything it is doing step by step so you can see how the "sausage is made". You get the added benefit of being able to pull logs from with the GUI. Most of all it saves you money. The support team is also incredible - fast, responsive and knowledgeable."
“No other way to do AVD. Started with "normal" AVD and it was very cumbersome to setup and difficult to manage natively in Azure. We were able to set it up and get test AVD virtuals running in a fraction of the time we wasted without it. If you're planning to setup and use a functional AVD environment and you skip Nerdio, you'll be doing it wrong. Their support is great and the product works well, super impressed.”
“One word - Awesome! In about 2 hours, we went from no Azure presence to deployed Workstations for remote users in both US and India. If you buy any tools for Azure Virtual Desktop - make it this one. And now.”
“Excellent product - amazing support. Nerdio has taken the majority of the complexity out of deploying AVD and the management is outstanding. The support is second to none and they are an amazing partner!”

Nerdio Manager for Enterprise Feature Demos


Nerdio Manager is an Azure Virtual Desktop and Windows 365-native, Enterprise-grade Azure application deployed to customer’s own Azure subscription and controlled exclusively by the customer. This means no data ever leaves and is only controlled by the customer.

Nerdio has partnered with Teradici to enable PCoIP® in Azure deployments, extending Microsoft’s flexible Azure platform with the performance and security of Teradici PCoIP® display protocol.

Azure Virtual Desktop Management




Create a brand new Azure Virtual Desktop environment or allow Nerdio Manager to discover an existing deployment, connecting to existing resources, and manage them.

Deploy Nerdio Manager from Azure Marketplace and configure a new AVD environment with an easy to follow, step-by-step configuration wizard. The first group of users can access their AVD desktop in less than two hours.

Service providers, system integrators, and consultants can leverage Nerdio Manager’s scripted AVD deployment template. Create complete environments with desktop images, host pools, and auto-scaling in minutes.

Create and manage AVD environments that span Azure regions and subscriptions. Quickly link Vnets and resource groups and manage AVD deployments world-wide from unified portal.

Management Of Workspaces, Host Pools, App Groups, Remoteapps & Custom RDP Settings (AVD ARM And Classic)

Administer every aspect of AVD with Nerdio Manager including workspaces, host pools, application groups, RemoteApp publishing, RDP properties, session time limits, FSLogix, and much, much more. Every Azure service that AVD relies on can be managed with Nerdio Manager.

Deploy and manage AVD session host VMs. Hosts can be created manually or with auto-scaling, deleted on-demand or on a schedule, re-imaged to apply updates, run a scripted action, resized, put into or taken out of drain mode, and more.

Manage user sessions across the entire AVD environment, within a workspace, host pool or on a single host. Monitor session status, disconnect or log off the user, shadow or remote control to provide support, or send user an on-screen message.

End users have the ability to log into Nerdio Manager with their Azure AD credentials and manage their own session, restart their desktop VM, or start a session host if none are started in a host pool. (*Ability to resize and re-image own desktop is coming soon.)

Create, link, and manage Azure Files shares including AD domain join. Synchronize Azure Files permissions with host pools, configure quotas, and enable SMB multi-channel. Manage file lock handles and configure Azure Files auto-scaling to increase quota as needed.

FSLogix configuration can be complex and overwhelming, but not with Nerdio Manager. Create one or more FSLogix profiles with all the needed options, point at one or more Azure Files, Azure NetApp Files, or server locations and select from VHDLocations, Cloud Cache and Azure Blob storage modes.

Multiple identity source profiles can be set up and used automatically on different host pools. Active Directory, Azure AD DS, and Native Azure AD are all supported. Choose the appropriate directory profile when adding a host pool and all VMs will automatically join this directory when being created.

Create a copy of a host pool with all of its settings: auto-scale config, app groups and RemoteApps, MSIX AppAttach, user/group assignments, VM deployment settings, etc. Save time by creating host pool “templates” that can be cloned to any Workspace, Azure region or subscription instead of starting from scratch.

Apply user session time limits at host pool level. Automatically log off disconnected sessions, limit the duration of idle sessions, control empty RemoteApp session behavior and more.

Assign Azure AD users to personal desktops to ensure the user will log into a pre-configured VM. Un-assign personal desktops from users who leave the organization and re-use these VMs for new users.

Pre-configure custom Azure tags for all Azure resources associated with each host pool. Tags can be used for charge-back and cost allocation by host pool.

When creating session hosts using NV-series VMs NVIDIA and AMD GPU drivers are automatically installed.

Move existing host pools from Fall 2019 (Classic) object model to Spring 2020 (ARM) object model. Choose to whether to move or copy user assignments. Existing session hosts are automatically migrated or new ones can be created in the ARM host pool.

Automatically enable and configure AVD integration with Azure Monitor. Zero configuration required. Azure Monitor Insights for AVD can be used instead of or in conjunction with Sepago Monitor.

Link multiple Azure tenants under the same Nerdio Manager instance and manage AVD deployments that span Azure AD tenants. User identities and session host VMs can run in separate tenants for maximum flexibility and security.

Deploy and manage AVD environments that span across sovereign Azure Clouds. Cross-sovereign cloud support allows identity (e.g. users and groups) to be in one Azure Cloud, while session host VMs are in another Azure Cloud.

On-Premises Deployment With Azure Stack HCI

Deploy Azure Virtual Desktop in Azure and extend the session host VM placement to on-premises networks using Azure Stack HCI. Nerdio Manager automates deployment of session hosts, AVD agent installation, and full integration into the AVD deployment in Azure. Leverage “burst-to-cloud” capabilities to add session host VMs in Azure once on-premises capacity is consumed.

Create, link, and manage Azure NetApp Files accounts, capacity pools and volumes. Configure provisioned volume size, monitor usage, and use auto-scaling to automatically adjust volume and capacity pool size to accommodate the needed capacity and latency requirements.

Teradici PCoIP Integration

Automatically deploy Teradici CAM and install PCoIP agent as pooled and personal VMs are created.





Schedule a recurring update to desktop images and automatically re-image host pools on a pre-defined schedule. System and application updates can be automatically applied after-hours without manual intervention.

When session host VMs are re-imaged, the VM name, AD computer object, IP address and DNS host name remain the same. No need to update other systems when re-imaging host VMs since they appear identical to external systems before and after the re-image process.

Before “sealing” the image (i.e. running “set as image” task) document any changes that were made. A report can be generated to show these changes and who made them.
