Azure Virtual Desktop

The Microsoft platform for virtual desktop infrastructure received a rebrand in June, dropping the “Windows” name and going with “Azure.” AVD also gained new features to improve security and management for users, such as enhanced Azure Active Directory support.

Microsoft also said users will have the ability to enroll virtual machines automatically with Microsoft Endpoint Manager, making deployment easier and reducing the need for a domain controller.

Microsoft partners have seen a huge boost in virtual desktop demand amid the shift to remote working. They previously told CRN that more integrations for Azure Virtual Desktop will help users to adopt the platform. Phil Walker, CEO of Network Solutions Provider, a Microsoft partner based in Manhattan Beach, Calif., said he hopes to see more integration between Azure Virtual Desktop and Microsoft 365.

“That’ll help grow adoption,” Walker said. “Customers want tools that will help them with efficiency and productivity in this new digital economy.”
