Optimise your business

Get to know AVD

Learn the basics of Azure Virtual Desktop, why it’s unique, and what’s new.


The key benefits of AVD


High-performance UX

The platform of choice when deploying a Windows 10 environment. Office 365 apps perform on par with their locally-hosted counterparts, with fast login and load times.


Simplified management

Microsoft controls many of the traditional management responsibilities, taking the load off of IT departments. Users are managed through the intuitive Azure portal.


Enhanced security

Secure sign-on, multi-factor authentication and role-based access  protects data. User sessions remain isolated, even in a Windows 10 multi-session.


Cost efficiency

Multiple sessions significantly reduce compute and infrastructure costs. Keep the licenses you already own, and save time, money and effort by switching from IaaS to PaaS.

User Profile Management

Proper profile management is one of the key principles of a virtual workspace, allowing for user mobility and the effective use of compute resources across locations and hosting.

When integrated with AVD, Citrix, or other remote desktop solutions, the FSLogix product suite improves user experience, speed, and simplicity.
