What are Windows Virtual Desktops?

Windows Virtual Desktops (WVD), also known as Azure Virtual Desktops, are virtual instances of physical desktops created using VDI technology.

Moreover, your applications become platform-independent, enabling the users to work on Windows-based applications even on macOS and iOS.

Ace Cloud Hosting offers a fully managed hosted virtual desktop service. This means, you get highly flexible virtual desktops with all data and applications over a secure cloud environment. This frees you from the local IT tasks related to the physical desktops, and their associated costs.

How Windows Virtual Desktop Works

For example, if an employee needs to work on something after office, they would be easily able to pick up the work by simply logging back into the system using the same credentials.

Thus, a Windows virtual desktop adds to the agility of a business. It enables higher levels of productivity and uninterrupted working, wherever employees may be located. Agility ultimately translates to greater productivity and increased efficiency for your business.

Windows Virtual Desktops vs. Traditional VDI

A Windows or Azure virtual desktop solution is popularly made available in two variants. The first variant, also known as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), is the practice of hosting a desktop on a centralized, on-premises server. In contrast, the cheaper and more convenient variant, also referred to as Desktop as a Service (DaaS), hosts the virtual desktop on cloud. The distinction is crucial because, with DaaS (or Cloud Hosted Desktop), all storage, hardware, and network infrastructure costs are outsourced to a third-party provider resulting in near-zero maintenance costs. Businesses choose cloud or offline hosted desktop solutions based on individual priorities and requirements.

Windows Virtual Desktop Traditional VDI
Desktop is hosted on the public or private cloud. Desktop is hosted on a centralized, on-premises server.
Fully managed offering where a third party cloud service provider like ACE takes care of Hardware, software & helpdesk for the customer. The virtual desktops are managed by the Internal IT team from the Hardware, Software to the helpdesk.
Accessible anytime, anywhere and on any device with an active internet connection. VDI is generally restricted to be access via corporate intranet inside office premises. It can be accessed outside office premises with the help of VPN.
DaaS has a lot of stringent security measures available such as peripheral device management, clipboard restrictions etc. In order to avoid any data leakage. Since VDI is hosted in an on-prem datacentre, which is under control of internal IT team. The data will remain secure.
DaaS can be a part of Business Continuity plan for any organization. Many DaaS Providers have Disaster Recovery plans for their Datacentres, hence even in case of Disaster the business do not get hampered. For VDI to have Disaster recovery, company needs to invest in a separate DR site that means more expenditure.
Significantly cost saving. No upfront cost, just pay as you go. Very high upfront capital investment is needed to start VDI.
