Azure Virtual Desktop
We at Arvato Systems rely on the best solution from the Microsoft Azure Cloud!
Virtualized Desktop Environments in the Cloud
The trend is clear: Gartner has been forecasting a constant increase for many years - most recently by around 30 percent for 2022 - for the virtual desktop market. And Gartner is right! Agility, speed, and reduced costs are just some of the benefits that Virtual Desktop Infrastructure can offer users. We explain what else Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) offers and how to make the most of your virtual desktop environments with Microsoft's cloud-based service. With new functionalities, high cost-effectiveness, and additional compliance support, Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) promise many advantages for deploying modern, virtual desktop environments.
As an experienced partner for managed hosting services, we at Arvato Systems have many years of expertise in providing and operating virtual desktops. We combine our experience as a VDI hoster with our Microsoft competencies to offer you the best Desktop as a Service (DaaS) offering. Azure Virtual Desktop from the Microsoft Azure Cloud may still be known to you under the old name Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) - but regardless of the name: Our workplace experts will guide you through the virtualization of your desktop and your applications and together we will exploit the full efficiency potential.
Azure Virtual Desktop Use Cases
Working under high compliance requirements
Virtual desktops are particularly useful in environments with high-security requirements, as they can optimally comply with individual compliance requirements and prevent unintentional data transfer to the outside. Home office is a typical application scenario that enables secure work even on remote end devices thanks to virtual desktops.
Working in a dynamic working environment
Virtual desktops are profitable when the number of users is dynamic or limited in time, as there is no need to purchase new hardware. For companies, this can mean significant cost savings. They also simplify the mobile workday by connecting external users to the company network much more efficiently and quickly while at the same time better managing high technical requirements.
Working on the move
With a virtual desktop infrastructure, you have the unique advantage that you can continue working exactly where you left off, regardless of the device. Virtual desktops support you in working on the road - at any time and anywhere with a stable Internet connection.
Challenges Around Your Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
One challenge when integrating a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure is computing power. For a VDI, you need, above all, a data center that guarantees stable performance. On the other hand, the provision of individual user profiles is associated with high technical complexity. The risk of incorrect licensing due to operating systems and access types can also be increased.

Frequently asked questions about Desktop as a Service and Azure Virtual Desktop
Why do I need Desktop as a Service (DaaS)?
With Desktop as a Service, you gain more time for your operational business activities. With DaaS, you not only outsource your hardware and software to us as an external provider. You also place the management of your devices in our hands. You and your employees work more time-, resources- and cost-efficient with DaaS.
Why is Azure Virtual Desktop the best solution?
With Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD), you get all the benefits that desktop virtualization can contain. AVD runs on all your endpoints and is usable regardless of your operating system. All your applications and desktops are consolidated into one easy-to-use interface. The best thing about AVD is that you continue working where you left off, regardless of the device.
