Getting started with Azure and virtualizing your desktops with AVD all by yourself can be challenging. Where do you start? Span developed the AVD PoC that helps you proceed your cloud journey.
Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) is a Microsoft-based solution that enables secure delivery of virtual desktops and remote applications with maximum control to any device from a flexible cloud virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) platform. Azure Virtual Desktop brings together Microsoft 365 and Azure to provide users the only multi-session Windows 11 and Windows 10 experience, with exceptional scale and reduced IT costs.
