4 Innovative Benefits of Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD)
1. Windows 10 Multi-session. AVD + Windows 10 allows multiple users to use the same desktop virtual machine at the same time. This saves money due tousing less Azure infrastructure and provides the user with a familiar desktop experience.
2. Simpler Profile Management With FSLogix. This is a user profile container technology, allowing the user to switch desktop virtual machines without losing access to their own customizations. Now use OneDrive and indexed search functionality in virtual desktops;not possible with RDS.
3. AVD Management Service. This Azure platform-as-a-service offering takes care of routing users’ connection to the proper Azure virtual machine. This sounds simple, but it used to require multiple servers with RDS infrastructure roles. Now, Microsoft handles this for you automatically.
4. Simplified Licensing. With RDS, you needed a license for the Server operating system, RDS, and Office ProPlus. With AVD, all you need is a subscription to Microsoft 365 or any Windows 10 Enterprise subscription.
