    Azure Virtual Desktop is an excellent tool for extending your existing infrastructure to the cloud and providing the same experience to users in both on-premises and virtual environments. Azure Lab Services, with its quicker setup time, and lack of connection to existing domains provides the ability to quickly spin up virtual environments for use for experimentation, learning, or delivering production resources.
