October Product of the Month: Azure Virtual Desktop
Access your desktop from virtually anywhere!

Provide the familiarity and compatibility of Windows 11 with the new scalable multi-session experience for your end users and save costs by using existing eligible Windows licenses. Manage your end-to-end Azure Virtual Desktop deployment alongside other Azure services within the Azure portal.
What you’ll get with AVD:

- Built-in intelligent security – help keep your applications and data secure and compliant with security capabilities that can proactively detect threats and take remedial action.
- Deploy and scale in minutes – simplify deployment and management of your infrastructure and scale quickly based on your business needs.
- Reduce cost using existing licenses – use existing eligible licenses to reduce costs with a modern cloud-based virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and pay only for what you use.
Access Windows 10 and Windows 11 desktop and applications from virtually anywhere.
Bring your own device (BYOD) and access your desktop and applications over the Internet using an Azure Virtual Desktop client such as Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, or HTML5. Choose the right Azure virtual machine (VM) to optimize performance and leverage the Windows 10 and Windows 11 multi-session advantage on Azure to run multiple concurrent user sessions and save costs.
Reduce Cost – there are no additional license costs — Azure Virtual Desktop can be used with your existing eligible Microsoft 365 or Windows per-user license. Reduce infrastructure costs by right-sizing virtual machines (VMs) and shutting them down when not in use. Increase utilization of VMs with Windows 10 and Windows 11 multi-session. Avoid upfront costs and align operational expenses to business usage.
