Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) was announced last year and public preview made available in March. WVD client is available for various platforms including Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and HTML 5.

BEI Networks, Chief Technical Officer, Jake Hovermale commented:

Windows Virtual Desktop allows our employees to work in a secure manner wherever they are. Windows Virtual Desktop provides the Windows 10 desktop experience that our employees are familiar with across a variety of devices or web browsers.

With WVD users can virtualize Windows 7 desktops — with free Extended Security Updates (ESU) until January 2023 meaning after the end of extended support for Windows 7 on January 2020, customers can get security updates who will have WVD purchase license.

For years Microsoft focused on virtualization, and now, it takes it to the next level by the addition of FSLogix. FSLogix containers into office 365 ProPlus allows it to run in virtual environments. The mentioned that all FSLogix tools are integrated into Windows Virtual Desktop. The company also simplified the app delivery by supporting MSIX containers “attached” to a virtual machine instead of installing it on that machine. Thus, it decreases the storage and makes it easier for the admin to manage.

Microsoft also notes that it will continue to invest in virtualization and mentioned some extensions including Citrix could extend WVD worldwide, and VMware Horizon Cloud on Azure will extend WVD at year-end. For WVD product check here.
