WVD GA

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

WVD Experience Estimator Tool

This experience estimator tool is 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 are able to 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 are going to change soon when Microsoft will have management planes and RD gateways around the world.
