Azure Virtual Desktop Use Cases

Remote Working

One of the most impactful use case for Azure virtual desktop infrastructure is enabling a distributed workforce by allowing employees to securely access all of their work applications, files, and systems from any location, any time, any device.

BYOD

Provides a secure and efficient way to access work resources from anywhere to specific employees, such as bring your own device (BYOD) and mobile users, call centers, and branch workers.

Specialized Workloads

With high-performance compute capabilities and features such as multi-screen support, the AVD can handle specialized workloads like software development, financial applications, 3D modeling, graphics design, CAD/CAM, and many other technical computing tasks.

Elastic Workforce

Azure Virtual Desktop enables organizations to effectively address dynamic workforce needs, including remote work, mergers and acquisitions, short-term personnel, contractors, and partner access. Its scalable infrastructure allows companies to provision virtual desktops on an as-needed basis in alignment with fluctuating business and staffing requirements.

Apps Streaming

AVD provides remote application streaming capabilities which allows users to access applications remotely by streaming them from a AVD cloud to their device. Once streamed, users can interact with applications as if they were running locally. This feature delivers applications with minimal lag even with suboptimal internet connectivity. Users can have a seamless experience interacting with streamed applications as if they were directly installed on their device.
