Today, Microsoft announced the General Availability of Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD). I think Windows Virtual Desktop is the only VDI service that delivers a multi-session Windows 10 experience.

AVD Experience Estimator Tool

This experience estimator tool is a pretty interesting one. It might be able to help to understand the current experience of WVD VMs. More details – https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/virtual-desktop/assessment/

  • You can estimate the connection round trip time (RTT) from your current location to each Azure region in which you can deploy virtual machines.
  • The Azure region recommended is based on connection round trip time (RTT) to your current location.

NOTE! – I’m sure these numbers will change soon when Microsoft has management planes and RD gateways worldwide.
