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 10 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.
