Windows Virtual Desktop – Why Businesses Should Prepare

Microsoft released its Azure service for Windows desktops on September 30, 2019. Offering remote desktops from the cloud is not revolutionary in itself if Microsoft happened to be a provider like any other. But Microsoft is the manufacturer of Windows, the basis of 99% of all remote desktop offers. So far, Microsoft has left the provision of remote desktops for customers to other providers. With this changing, Microsoft’s Windows operating system will play a significant role in it becoming a leading virtualization provider.
