Azure VDI - Streaming application Questions

Hello,

We are thinking about start using Azure VDI for streaming our application to the users.

About that there are still a few things that i do not understund very well.

1st - Do we need an ADDS service? Or can we use Azure AD only?
2nd - About the licensings, how do we migrate our User CALs RDS to azure VDI?
3rd - The pricing for streaming applications is the same for multi-session desktops?
4th - We only want to use the app streaming so do we need the User CALs license or an ADDS? Or the licenses are different?

Thanks in advance,
Daniel Nascimento

  1. Azure AD is now supported but with some limitations - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-desktop/deploy-azure-ad-joined-vm

  2. If using Windows 10 as the OS to host your application then licensing is generally down through M365 per user licensing - https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/virtual-desktop/

  3. Yes, unless you are providing access to external customers which has a different license model - https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/virtual-desktop/

  4. You will need a license to access the service per user regardless. You may require an AD DS service depending on your needs but no CALs required for this.

Thank you for the fast answer.

To do this i still need a WS Server Vm in the host pool and then configure the application to be streamed in the VDI, i believe this is the way. But to do that wont i need any CALs License? The objective is that users only acess to the streamed application that is stored there.

If for remote app it's not required a user CALs per user, which license do i need?

I understood from the link you have provided that we can use Azure AD unless we store data in the VM, but we can still store data in a remote storage.

You don't need any User CALs for Azure Windows Server VMs.

Please refer to the second link regarding the licensing options available to you.

Regarding Azure AD join, yes if using remote storage you should be OK,
