Employing a Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD): Why and How?

May 12, 2020 Cara Heimbaugh

Creating a work environment that allows for your employees to function seamlessly both at the office, at home and on the go is something that is becoming more and more necessary in our modern and progressive society. 

Research has shown that remote work can provide ample business benefits, including: 

  • Better work-life balance 
  • Increased productivity  
  • Less sick days and less employee attrition 
  • Savings of thousands per employee per year 
  • Greater competition in the recruiting space 

So how does your company get there? How does a business provide the proper tooling to empower a remote and mobile workforce? For us, the answer begins with Windows Virtual Desktop. 

Many believe that simply having Office 365, Microsoft’s cloud-based collaboration suite, is enough, but Windows Virtual Desktop is the unsung hero in the remote work space, since there are some applications that are necessary to be productive that are not designed to run from the cloud.  

Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) is Microsoft’s cloud-native solution for all those remote desktop and remote application needs that don’t fit seamlessly into the Office 365 tool box 

Knowing this, our experts have developed a service solution that will provide your company with the tooling and power it needs to operate remotely when needed or desired. Our Windows Virtual Desktop Jumpstart has three editions that are tiered, based on your business size and needs. The best part—if your company is already functioning within Azure, your WVD environment can scale up and down easily to empower more or less users when necessary. This creates a significant cost savings compared to competing solution.
