Windows Virtual Desktop


Tim Tetrick


Hello Microsoft Partners!

I was really excited to see Windows Virtual Desktop officially announced at Ignite a couple weeks back.  Windows Virtual Desktop (formally known at RDmi (Remote Desktop Modern Infrastructure)), is a new service that enables you to host a complete modern desktop experience on Azure with built-in security and compliance, and access it from any device.

Windows Virtual Desktop is the best virtualized Windows and Office experience delivered on Azure.  It is the only cloud-based service that delivers a multi-user Windows 10 experience, optimized for Office 365 ProPlus, and includes free Windows 7 Extended Security Updates. With Windows Virtual Desktop, you can deploy and scale Windows and Office on Azure in minutes, with built-in security and compliance.

I wanted to provide you with some resources to quickly get you up to speed on this new solution.
