As companies adapt to new ways of working, enabling secure, remote work through virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is becoming increasingly important. Remote Desktop Services (RDS) is a common on-premises solution; however, it doesn’t realize the full value of modernization.


Azure Virtual Desktop is a managed VDI-delivered solution hosted on Microsoft Azure that provides a secure remote desktop experience the benefits of cloud.
