Overall Satisfaction with Azure Virtual Desktop

We are using Azure Virtual Desktop or AVD on large scale as a Common Shared desktop to showcase our test builds to end users. as we have a large team, we used separate instances for all builds. Azure Virtual Desktop played a vital role in removing this bottleneck. now we use a single AVD desktop for all the testing.
  • scaling
  • using our own image
  • seamless multi-session capabilities
  • UI can be updated
  • Higher DPI would have been welcome
  • lags on low end devices
  • scalability
  • cost
  • ease of use
  • saved a lot by removing individual instances
  • we can use one license for one system and essentially share it with as much staff as we want
  • we saved a lot on Microsoft products
The above-mentioned are only single-purpose software and no doubt they do the job but, AVD itself is a whole suit of services. easy use of UI makes it a greater choice among others. the best thing about AVD is the ability to let multiple users connect rather than one instance for the user that is usually the case with alternatives

Do you think Azure Virtual Desktop delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Azure Virtual Desktop's feature set?


Did Azure Virtual Desktop live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Azure Virtual Desktop go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Azure Virtual Desktop again?


if you're having a testing team that works on testing load for various scenarios, as we have here, dev, test, quality & production build. this is an ideal use case to implement AVD, especially if you're staff is all work from home. they will just require AVD and they're ready to go.
