What are Windows Virtual Desktops and how they work

Windows Virtual Desktops allows your employees to access “their computers” remotely using any device (a PC, a Mac, a tablet, a phone, a thin or zero client). Remarkably, the users’ experience is absolutely the same as they were working using traditional computers. It looks and feals like a real Windows 10.

When we say “their computers”, we mean Azure cloud instances, not physical computers located in the office. The operating system and user data are securely located on these cloud instances, being duplicated across the Azure data centers, so they never fail, unlike the ordinary computers.

What are the core benefits of Windows Virtual Desktops

 

Reduced costs

Windows Virtual Desktops have significantly less Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than a regular computer infrastructure: no hardware upgrades, no software updates. And as a result, minimum IT labor is invloved.

Incredible scalability

Whenever you need more computing power or extra storage or even additional GPU seats., everything can be delivered immediately. Moreover, everything can be scaled up and down automatically according to rules you specify.

Any device access

Whatever devices your employees are using, from the smallest Blackberry phone screen to the largest studio screens, they can access their Windows Virtual Desktops from whenever they are: an office, a home, a park, on the way, etc. All they need is just an Internet connection to get a full-featured Windows 10 experience.

Easy onboarding

Windows Virtual Desktops’ technology adoption is simple and straightforward. This is the same Windows everyone is familiar with. The only difference is that now your employees can use it on any device, and no special app is needed. Everyone logs in by clicking the link.

Unparalleled security

All the data is backed up “on-fly” on Microsoft Azure datacenters. It’s a seamless and failproof process. Moreover, your employees are limited to the data you allow them to access only, with no option to download or copy any files to their devices.

Increased productivity

Enjoy the synergy of real-time collaboration and true remote access from any place and any device to achieve your goals faster and stressless. Make your employees happier with the easier way to get their jobs done!

Myths and F.A.Q. about Windows Virtual Desktops

The most common questions our clients ask

What is WVD?

Windows Virtual Desktop or WVD is pretty much the same Windows 10 PC you are familiar with. The only difference that its “located” not in your office, but in Microsoft Azure datacenter. It also has a Windows 10 installed and runs and “feels” like a real PC.

However, the similarities end here. In reality, WVD is hosted by a Virtual Machine (VM), which hardware distributed across many servers in an Azure datacenter or, moreover, across several datacenters if needed. This allows WVD to be more scalable, flexible, and secure than any real PC. You can add storage and computing power with a click (and you can automate it). WVD never fails as there is no particular hardware to fail. Its storages are always consistent as they are duplicated many times across multiple SSD and/or HHD in the datacenter.

But, the most remarkable thing about WVD that you can access and work from any PC, Mac, tablet, or phone. And these days, it’s not even necessary to install an RDP app – all you need is a web browser. You and your employees just click the link, and voila, there is a Windows 10 PC in the web browser window. Furthermore, each employee will have their own set of apps and access levels you assign them.

Windows Virtual Desktops are for large companies of 50 and more users only. They are useless for small companies.

This is the most common myth. Undoubtedly, there are economies of scale when the quantity of users reaches 50 or more. However, our Multi-session Windows Virtual Desktops are cost-effective even for as low as five users only.

Let’s make some maths. For instance, let’s calculate your TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) for some low-end five PCs in the office. It will be around $4000 to purchase them only and you will have to upgrade them each four years. Then you spend $199 per PC for Windows 10 Pro license per PC and $32 user/month for Microsoft 365 E3 Apps. Also, you will need some basic IT management (software upgrades, antiviruses, troubleshooting, backup management. etc.) of this simple infrastructure – let’s take it as a minimum $50 per month per PC.

So, the TCO per month is $4000//4/12 + $199*5/4/12 + $32*5 + $50*5 = $514 month or slightly more than $100 per PC per month, while it’s only $400 per month or $80 per user per month if you move to the cloud with our Windows Virtual Desktops solution.

But, these are your spendings analysis only. Let’s see what you get.

On the one hand, for your $100 per user per month, you will get a very basic PC for each user. Should you need a more powerful PC, you will have to buy it increasing your TCO to $150 and more (sometimes much more). Should any PC fails, you will have to wait for repair and/or replacement. Moreover, the internet speed of these PCs is limited to your office PC … and you can use them in your office only.

On the other hand, with our Multi-session Windows Virtual Desktops, for $80 only you will have the experience of using a set of five very powerful virtual machines with burstable CPUs (the CPU speed increases automatically when the workload increases). It never fails and doesn’t need any maintenance. And on top of that, the internet connection of each (!) virtual machine is 1Gbps (or more) no matter how many of them you have. But the most important benefit is that your employees’ locations are not limited to your office anymore, now they can work from anywhere.

As you can see, our multi-session Windows Virtual Desktops are a cost-effective solution for as low as five users’ offices. Additionally, it reshapes your employees’ productivity to the next level.

Windows Virtual Desktops are slow as per end-user experience point of view.

A couple of years ago, this issue was a serious obstacle for moving to the cloud. The screen refresh rate was too low, the mouse and keyboard inputs were lagging, the connections were dropping sometimes so the overall experience was far away from optimal.

Nowadays, this is not the case anymore.

Microsoft has created the new RDP protocol which drastically optimized screen refreshing, so you’ll hardly notice any difference when you switch between your local PC and Windows Virtual Desktop.

Furthermore, the multi-session Windows Virtual Desktops we provide are hosted on Microsoft Azure datacenters. These are distributed across the world to ensure that the connection between you and your virtual desktop will be fast and consistent wherever you are. On top of that, Microsoft Azure datacenters’ infrastructure is thoroughly optimized for Windows Virtual Desktops.

Moreover, the internet connection of the Windows Virtual Desktops is as fast as 1 Gbps or even more for each (sic!) desktop. Compare it to your office network where all the computers share the same bandwidth. So, it takes just seconds to download or upload huge amounts of data.

Hence, modern Windows Virtual Desktops cannot be considered slow anymore. These days, they are much faster than the average office PC.
