Three benefits of deploying Azure Virtual Desktop
54% of IT professionals believe that remote working is a greater risk to their business. But it doesn’t have to be when you have the right solution in place.
Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) allows you to quickly deploy applications and desktops to enable secure remote working. But it does so much more than that. Azure Virtual Desktop offers:
- Simplified management
- Multi-session Windows 10
- Optimisations for Microsoft 365 applications
- Enterprise support for Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environments.
Deploying AVD is a key enabler to rolling out an effective remote working solution. Employees will have the ability to access any desktop and application from any device, in any location. But there’s more to Azure Virtual Desktop than creating a remote working environment. Lets dive into three of the key benefits of deploying AVD.
Virtual Desktops can slash expenses from the get-go with minimal costs if the server is already up and running. You can also forget about any expensive hardware that requires the specific software and licences. But it doesn’t stop there. There’s additional savings to be made later down the line too. You’ll be able to streamline any upgrades, reducing the time IT spend repeating the same upgrade across different devices. Plus, you’ll have the ability to use existing Windows and Microsoft 365 licences to access Azure Virtual Desktop.
With the money saved from AVD, your business will be able to reinvest to enhance business operations and your future IT strategy.
Moving your company’s data into a Azure Virtual Desktop will remove the risk of having any hardware tampered with, lost, or stolen.
AVD is built on the same security as Microsoft Azure. So, you’ll be able to reap all the benefits of identity management, backup, database security and more. Not to forget that Microsoft invests over $1 billion in security every year, has over 3,500 security experts dedicated to enhancing your security and Azure has more compliance certifications than any over cloud service provider. Meaning you have access to the latest and greatest security tools available.
Flexibility & Productivity
Increasing business productivity is an overarching objective of most businesses. Which brings us onto our last benefit of using Azure Virtual Desktop. Increased productivity.
AVD allows your IT to become more agile when desktops are hosted virtually. Employees will have the ability to access windows and applications from any device, regardless of their location. Allowing you to create a flexible and modern workplace. Azure Virtual Desktop seamlessly integrates with Microsoft 365 and Teams to enhance your employees productivity within the Microsoft Ecosystem.
In recent years, over 80% of businesses rely on employees to use personal devices for at least one app – hence the rise in the BYOD policy. A flexible workplace is a productive workplace.
Plus, it’s an added disaster recovery protocol. If a disaster ever hits, employees will be able to maintain productivity levels with the flexible workplace you’ve created.
But the benefits don’t stop there.
The benefits of deploying Azure Virtual Desktop are endless. Deploying AVD provides you with the flexibility you need to help grow your business in the cloud. Are you ready to take the plunge? Get in contact with our experts to discover more about the power of Azure Virtual Desktop.
