Windows Virtual Desktop on Azure | Released

Windows Virtual Desktop is now released and ready for production! On today’s show, Scott Manchester demonstrates WVD at general availability and what’s coming. We’ll show what the WVD team is doing to revolutionize app delivery with App Attach. This is a new way to deliver apps to WVD virtual machines without installing or streaming app binaries into VMs, but instead attaching to MSIX-based app packages stored in file shares – so they ‘feel’ installed to Windows and appear and work as if installed to WVD users. We also show AV redirect in Microsoft Teams, to optimize video and audio delivery between clients, by eliminating ‘hops’ normally needed to encode and decode AV streams between clients and VMs. Finally, using Azure NetApp Files, we’ll show you an easy way to lift-and-shift file share volumes directly into Azure, so they retain file and folder permissions, paths, and classic manageability.

  1. Love these You Tube videos. Can you create a video specifically address disk encryption with WVD. the current information available seems to be inconsistent and have also found errors within the command line published on the MS sites.

  2. Excellent overview team! When will the AV redirection be in public preview. Desperate to get my hands on that .reg file!

  3. This from the fslogix guys gives a more technical overview. Link is to the appattach part, but the whole thing is interesting.

  4. So does an application need to support app attach for this to work out will it work with any existing / legacy application?

  5. But… can Teams work as an AppAttached application? If so explain how as it only exists in the user's profile. And, how can you manage updates as it update's itself in every user's profile.

  6. FSLogix AppAtach looks very nice. Please do a video on how to 1-Create-App, 2-Update-App, 3-Optimize-App-Storage.
