New Azure Virtual Desktop Pricing Coming
Microsoft will introduce a new monthly, per-user access pricing option for Azure Virtual Desktop aimed at helping ISVs secure new business opportunities as they deliver apps from the cloud to customers and business partners, and expand their SaaS businesses. Azure Virtual Desktop is a desktop and app virtualization service that runs on the cloud.
The new pricing option takes effect on Jan. 1, 2022, but Microsoft is offering free promotional access through Dec. 31, 2021, for streaming first- or third-party apps to external users. Organizations must continue to pay for the underlying Azure infrastructure.
