Microsoft has finally announced the worldwide “general availability” of its Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) service.  Here at ClevaGroup, we’ve been eagerly anticipating this release and the increased efficiency, flexibility and security it offers.  The new Azure-based cloud service is a huge step forward for the cloud computing industry and is set to be the new “gold standard” for Virtual Desktops.  As usual with the latest releases in Azure, we’ve been working closely with Microsoft testing the service over the last 6 months.  We are very excited about Windows Virtual Desktop and what it allows us to help our customers achieve – and we want to help you understand it more so that you can be excited too!
