The age of cloud is upon us. The cloud has been undeniably reliable throughout the pandemic with proven scalability and optimization. Most companies have spent the better part of the year trying to figure out how to pivot, adapt, and do their best to keep employees confident and productive at home with business continuity as a key factor. To thrive in a fragile market, we need systems and processes that can be adjusted and updated to provide products and services with maximized capabilities. So, prioritizing what comes next is essential.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)
Configuring Azure Active Directory and Azure AD Domain Services
In our previous post, we configured Azure Windows Virtual Desktop and mentioned that WVD has several requisites to make things work. One of them is Azure Active Directory and this will be the focus of our post. You get an Azure AD when you open an Azure account but there is more to it than just that.
Implementing Azure Windows Virtual Desktop
The resulting remote work situation from COVID-19 has been a driving force toward the accelerated improvements to the service known as Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD). This service has existed for some years now but it wasn't until 2020 that it achieved greater popularity. WVD is providing companies with the ability to securely allow employees to work remotely with an infrastructure that not only gives them their familiar tools such as Microsoft Office but directly connected to their office network. So it is just like everyone is using their office computers. Let's examine how to implement a Windows Virtual Desktop infrastructure for your organization.
Introduction to Windows Virtual Desktop
Windows Virtual Desktop(WVD) or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure(VDI) is a comprehensive cloud-based desktop and app virtualization service running on the Azure cloud. It is the only service that delivers simplified management, multi-session Windows 10, and support for Remote Desktop Services Environments(RDS). Windows Virtual Desktop allows you to deploy and scale Windows desktops and apps for employees on Azure in minutes, with built-in security and compliance.
