Microsoft reveals the Windows Virtual Desktop technology is now feature complete and is moving to the final phase for general availability. A firm launch date wasn't revealed but ZD Net's Maro Jo Foley believes the feature will likely be released in September.
Windows Virtual Desktop enables you to run Windows 7 and Windows 7, as well as Office programs, in a virtual machine in the cloud.
Based on previous information provided by Microsoft, this will be a unique solution for those organisations looking to use Windows 7 beyond its end-of-life deadline of January 2020, as Microsoft will be providing free security updates for Windows 7 machines running on WVD until January 2023. In order to use the service, you will need to have an Azure subscription, though pricing for WVD itself is not yet known.
