Virtual Desktop platforms are transforming how teams work from anywhere in the world– a necessity in a post-pandemic world.
Desktop virtualization is also a critical tool for maintaining business continuity.
If disaster strikes, organizations can rest assure that their data remains secure and accessible at the cloud,
allowing business operations to resume immediately.
Enter Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD). AVD is a cloud-based application and desktop virtualization tool powered by Azure. Its baked-in security and compliance features, integration with the Microsoft suite of products enterprises have relied on for decades, and cost effectiveness makes it the best virtual desktop solution available.
We understand that every organization has different goals for their AVD investment. Our team of Azure experts and cloud consultants provide a cost optimization, security, and remote productivity strategy tailored to your specific needs. The path to desktop virtualization includes four key phases.
We begin by conducting a comprehensive assessment to create a tailored desktop virtualization plan. This involves analyzing your application requirements, evaluating existing licenses, considering infrastructure considerations, and aligning with your total cost of ownership (TCO) goals.
Given that employees are 20-25% more productive when working from home (WFH),
and 76% of them prefer working remotely, virtual desktops will be critical for companies looking to get the most out of their workforce
AVD provides a level of freedom and workplace efficiency that would have otherwise been impossible, enabling companies to fully embrace post-2020 world of remote working. Azure Virtual Desktop integrates with Microsoft Teams and Microsoft 365 Apps for Enterprise, ensuring a seamless experience from any device, any location.
When you work with a managed service provider like TechnoData, the productivity gains experienced through your WVD solution are amplified even further. We ensure your desktops are linked correctly, your applications provide a seamless experience, and your users are on-boarded successfully.
AVD is a free service for anyone with an existing Windows user or Microsoft 365 license.
The only additional costs are cloud consumption, for which you only pay for what you use.
Azure Virtual Desktop also enables companies to maximize their current infrastructure and investments with VMware Horizon Cloud and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktop Service on Microsoft Azure. AVD integrates into both of these existing applications and desktop virtualization environments for those looking to maintain a hybrid cloud deployment. In addition, VMware and Citrix customers can deploy Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session on Azure VMs, enabling multiple concurrent users.
At TechnoData, we have every trick and tactic at our disposal for optimizing your AVD and Azure costs. From Azure Hybrid Cloud Benefits and price matching to reserved instances and containerization, our team of Azure Cloud experts will ensure you get as much value as possible from your Azure Virtual Desktop investment.
With Azure Virtual Desktop, concerns over ransomware, malware, and cyber-attacks are greatly reduced.
This is because AVD creates an extra security layer that exists in Azure and does not rely on the device the employee is using
– or how secure that device is.
AVD is hosted in not just any cloud – it resides in Microsoft Azure, the leading cloud provider for enterprise security which gives access to a suite of comprehensive, easy-to-use tools for maintaining your security posture.
Managing security in the cloud and adhering to Azure's security best practices requires specific expertise that many companies may lack.
This is where managed service providers like TechnoData can bridge the knowledge gap.
Our experts possess a deep understanding of Microsoft's extensive security toolset and will guide your team in leveraging it effectively,
ensuring end-to-end security for your virtual desktop implementation.
By utilizing AVD in conjunction with Azure's robust security features and partnering with skilled managed service providers like TechnoData, organizations can enhance their security posture, mitigate risks, and maintain a protected virtual desktop environment.
