Windows Desktop in Azure

by Jim Moreo

Running Windows Desktops on Azure Has Finally Become a Reality

For years, Microsoft has been hinting at running Windows desktop operating systems in their cloud – on September 30, 2019 it was made a reality.    Firms that are using Azure for their primary or disaster recovery data centers can now have their Windows desktop running alongside their servers and data.  Microsoft has added multi-session capability to the Windows 10 Enterprise on Azure – similar to Remote Desktop Services.  The multi-session version of Windows 10 reduces the Azure resource consumption cost by allowing multiple users to share the same operating system’s resources. With the firm’s desktops in Azure employees can securely access their firm’s desktop and applications from anywhere on any device.  This design reduces the administration and maintenance of endpoints and the risk of data leakage.
