Microsoft delivers public preview of Windows Virtual Desktop

by Volker Weber

Mary Jo Foley:

Users who want to use WVD to access Windows 10 and Windows 7 desktops and apps won't be charged an additional fee for that purpose, as long as they are existing Microsoft 365 F1, E3, E5, Windows 10 Enterprise E3 or E5 and/or are a Windows VDA customer. Those who are existing Windows Server users, there will be no additional cost, as long as they're using existing Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) and the appropriate client-access licenses.

During the public preview, desktops and apps can be deployed in virtual machines in any Azure region, but the data and management of these apps will reside in the U.S. That means data transfer to the U.S. may happen during the test period. Once WVD is publicly available, data and management for WVD will be available in all Azure regions, starting at general availability.

Microsoft is committing to make WVD generally available in the second half of 2019.

WVD users will get free extended support for three years (until January 2023) with no additional charge.
