Microsoft is rebranding its Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) service as "Azure Virtual Desktop." At the same time, the company is introducing a new ISV/per-user pricing option and taking the wraps off a bunch of new manageability and security features coming soon. WVD, an Azure-based service, enables users to virtualize their Windows desktop, Office apps, and other third-party applications by running them remotely in Azure virtual machines. Microsoft officially unveiled Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) in September 2018 and made it generally available a year later. On June 7, Microsoft officials unveiled the new, now-AVD-branded capabilities that Microsoft is readying to "establish broader outlines for the product," in the words of Kam VedBrat, General Manager of AVD.
