Why Azure Virtual Desktop is the Future of VDI


In today's world, businesses are increasingly turning to cloud computing to meet their IT needs. One area that has seen significant growth in recent years is Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), which allows users to access their desktop and applications from anywhere, at any time, using any device.


Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) is Microsoft's cloud-based solution for VDI, and it is rapidly becoming the preferred choice for businesses of all sizes. In this article, we will explore why AVD is the future of VDI and how HybrIT are experts in delivering this technology.


The Benefits of Azure Virtual Desktop


There are several key benefits to using AVD as your VDI solution:

  • Scalability and Flexibility

AVD allows businesses to scale up or down quickly and easily, depending on their needs. This means you can add or remove virtual machines (VMs) as needed, without having to worry about the costs and complexities of managing physical hardware. Additionally, AVD provides flexibility in terms of how and where your employees work. With AVD, your users can access their desktops and applications from anywhere, using any device. This means your employees can work from home, from the office, or on the go, without any interruption to their workflow.

  • Improved Security

AVD offers several security features that are not available in traditional VDI solutions. For example, AVD uses Azure Active Directory (AAD) to authenticate users, which provides an extra layer of security. Additionally, AVD allows businesses to centralise their data and applications in the cloud, which can reduce the risk of data breaches and other security incidents. With AVD, you can control who has access to your data and applications, and you can monitor and manage user activity in real-time.

  • Cost Savings

AVD can provide significant cost savings compared to traditional VDI solutions. With AVD, you only pay for what you use, which means you can reduce your IT costs by eliminating the need for expensive hardware and software licenses. Additionally, AVD provides a pay-as-you-go model, which means you can scale up or down as needed, without having to worry about upfront costs. This can be especially beneficial for businesses that have seasonal or fluctuating workloads. Why Azure Virtual Desktop is the Future of VDI There are several reasons why AVD is the future of VDI:

  • Cloud Computing is the Future

Cloud computing is rapidly becoming the standard for IT infrastructure. According to a recent study, 83% of enterprise workloads will be in the cloud by 2020. This is due to several factors, including the cost savings, scalability, and flexibility offered by cloud-based solutions.

  • Microsoft is Investing Heavily in AVD

Microsoft has made significant investments in AVD in recent years, which is a clear indication of its commitment to this technology. For example, Microsoft recently announced that AVD will be included with Windows 365, a new cloud-based solution that allows businesses to run their desktops and applications in the cloud. Additionally, Microsoft has announced several new features and capabilities for AVD, including support for Windows 11 and enhanced integration with Microsoft Teams.

  • AVD Offers Significant Advantages Over Traditional VDI Solutions

AVD offers several advantages over traditional VDI solutions, including improved scalability, flexibility, security, and cost savings. As businesses increasingly look to the cloud to meet their IT needs, AVD is becoming the preferred choice for VDI.
