Pooled (many-to-1 assignment between users and desktop VM)WVD can also be used to deliver individual apps instead of full published desktops. Microsoft released a new scale session hosts tool to be used with the Azure Automation service available here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-desktop/set-up-scaling-script. For more information about provisioning apps, check out these resources: You can disable the Microsoft Store app to make sure users don't download extra apps beyond the apps you've already provisioned for them. There are no limits to the number of users available per session. Less than 2 years later from my visit, RDmi evolved into Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) and became Generally Available on September 30, 2019. MSIX app attach is a function of your WVD entitlement and meant to be used for virtual environments only. This means any apps you have installed on RDSH, Citrix Virtual Apps (XenApp), and Horizon Apps will all install and work the same way on this OS. To help you understand and draw a correlation, this is very much like many of the remoting solutions we have used in the EUC world such as Citrix Gateway (NetScaler Gateway) for Citrix VAD environments and Unified Access Gateway for VMware Horizon environments. Everything in this container is disposable since it’s just cache data. What I heard as far as roadmap and had an opportunity to try out was going to be exciting for the EUC community. GPU optimized VMs are supported with Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 onward. Yes, WVD supports NVIDIA GRID and AMD Radeon backed VMs as well for high-performance graphics workloads, one of the mainstays of EUC and remoting. If you’re already logged in to other AAD protected services or are on an Azure AD Joined or Hybrid Azure AD Joined device as your client, then it will simply SSO you in using the existing authentication token when you visit that URL. Some application installers can block installation on Windows 10 multi-session depending on whether they detect the ProductType is set to Client. Virtual desktops are front and center now at Microsoft when many years ago it was considered a niche. This happens because you're using Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session with a profile management solution like FSLogix. FSLogix Office 365 Container – gives you a place to store all the Office 365 cache data for VDI. Click “Create” to get started. MSIX app attach is currently in Public Preview at the time of writing this article. Development time has to be prioritized and if Microsoft were to focus on releasing a robust GUI, this could have become a blocker for many ISVs as they waited for the APIs. I just want things to work and not have to deal with versions of various components I have to keep track of and remember to update. If you attempt to export it out of Azure and run it on-prem it will throw an error message. Breadth-first is the default setting and will distribute sessions across all available session hosts in a host pool. FSLogix Java Redirection – install legacy insecure Java versions in your image for certain legacy apps in your company without exposing your whole environment to all the accompanying security issues with Java. Azure Site Recovery (ASR) is great to leverage for this migration purpose. For all the same reasons as Authenticator above. It now needs a little more simplicity for the admin experience portion for more of a full turn-key DaaS platform. How many interactive sessions that can be active at the same time relies on your system's hardware resources (vCPU, memory, disk, and vGPU), how your users use their apps while signed in to a session, and how heavy your system's workload is. It truly is one of the most powerful tools in your arsenal and you don’t have to lift a finger. At&t no longer offers micro cell..my husbands ... Jason, many thanks for this very informative and u... An impressive tribe of information. You have all 56 regions available to you for your workloads. Sounds like yet another game-changer for app delivery that will benefit all of EUC: The little known benefit of your Microsoft WVD entitlement. The issue with multiple Remote Desktop Sessions on Windows 10 and 8. It is your responsibility to monitor and size up VMs or scale outward when you see users taxing their VMs. Bottom-line, you MUST use FSLogix Profile Container and O365 Container for your environment to be successful in my opinion. Additionally, we are seeing a lot of features coming for the Azure ecosystem and other Microsoft products themselves that are designed to support WVD. Something different than anyone could predict. Now create your WVD tenant. It’s not maintaining software components on servers as we used to years ago with VDI control planes on-prem. The same rule of thumb calculation for on-premises SBC user sizing is applicable to the Azure based Windows 10 multi-session workloads. The only cost to you is Azure IaaS consumption of your workloads in the host pools (CPU, RAM, and storage for the VMs and user profiles). Use this service for free to uproot these boat anchors and move them into your modern EUC environment: App Assure is part of the FastTrack Center Benefit. Customize the image to your needs by installing LOB applications and sysprep the image. It will have Office 365 ProPlus already installed and optimized in the image. 🙂 Love those leaves! App Masking and Java Redirection are nice and have been great for me in the past when I needed those features. The only solution I’ve found is using 3rd party Citrix Federated Authentication Service (FAS). Most customers use Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session, which allows multiple users to log on to each VM. The results are sometimes very interesting. I’m sure there will be more data points and telemetry coming to help you plan your deployments. Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session is tested, optimized for, and supported exclusively on Azure. MSIX can be used for both physical and virtual endpoints. MAPS contains RDS CALs, Win 10 licenses, O365 E3, but no Microsoft or Windows E3/E5 or VDA. Also, make sure to leave the disk type as the default Premium SSD. These benefits and progress are not just exclusive to the WVD control plane. I have done this configuration successfully. Since WVD is a native Azure service, it is able to support Azure AD natively as a result. After that, get Windows Virtual Desktop from the Azure Marketplace and use it to deploy a new host pool with the customized image. How Apps r being tested for W10 multisession and VDI readiness? I want to give a rundown on what exactly Microsoft WVD is and how you can use it with your existing investments. This property keeps the OS compatible with existing RDSH management tooling, RDSH multi-session-aware applications, and mostly low-level system performance optimizations for RDSH environments. If your app won't install, contact your application vendor for an updated version. For workloads that … Who knows what the future holds but I’ll be sure to type up a guide as soon as we see features released here over time. Learn more I hope this article has helped you and feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions or need clarification on anything I’ve covered. @Mikael Jones, yup you got it, that is accurate today. This is currently a “just in time” tool but it would be nice to see it take data points for you over a period of time and report back to you. The actual ExpressRoute circuits themselves are very good and very low latency. Additionally, choose the Azure Spot instance option when deploying test VMs, this will save you a lot of money: In the Azure Marketplace, you can use “Microsoft Windows 10 + Office 365 ProPlus” and choose Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session or Enterprise for Virtual Desktops depending on the build version in the drop-down box. This feature is in Private Preview right now and of course, you must shell out the cash for the Azure Stack Hub hardware as well as the pay-as-you-use consumption. Now with WVD, they have another option. As we enter 2020, many companies are looking ahead on what their EUC environment strategy is and how to use and incorporate Microsoft WVD with partner solutions. I really hope they will start enabling Azure AD authentication and login with SSO – that would be awesome. It’s a solid tried and true approach. When the user then starts an app, do they need to authenticate again or are they SSO’d? You can start a virtual machine (VM) in Azure with Windows 10 Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session and customize it by installing LOB applications, sysprep/generalize, and then create an image using the Azure portal. I would recommend the latter with Office 365 Pro Plus installed, however, if you intend actually use it in production with users: Yes, the “winver” command will say Windows 10 1909 Enterprise for Virtual Desktops (EVD) at the moment but the proper term is Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session and will likely be changed to reflect this. The same reverse proxy concept where you are talking to the middleman “gateway” and the VM you are trying to get to is connecting back to this middleman as well so all traffic flows through the gateway. Then search the Azure Marketplace for “Windows Virtual Desktop” and click on the result which will give you a screen like this. When the user starts an app, for Windows SSO to work you will need AD FS configured or they will be prompted to authenticate again. This means it is identifying as a Windows Server operating system. As with anything DaaS (desktop-as-a-service), you need to develop a DevOps mentality and constantly analyze and improve the service you are offering to your users: The management plane for WVD, really the points of presence (POPs) for user ingress via the WVD Gateway/WVD Web, are not available in every region yet but they will be over time. Scale-out VMs based on the number of sessions per CPU core. That esoteric blue on black “Microsoft Azure” logo on the front panel is just calling to me: WVD supports Azure Active Directory. If you try to install software on Windows 10 multi-session, it will report a ProductType value of 3 back to the software installer. Your email address will not be published. …of course, you have to take a picture in front of the Microsoft sign! You need to understand the pedigree of the solution to fully understand what it is and how to use it. Using Azure Reserved Instances can save you considerably when running these or any VMs in general for your host pools. You can go to the registry adn navigate to “Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Virtual Machine\Auto” to examine this value: If you go to the registry and navigate to “Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion”, you will notice for EditionID it says “ServerRdsh” further showing its intended purpose for density: Also, note that Server OS for end-users is considered legacy now by Microsoft. Conditional Access is a key component of Microsoft’s Zero Trust security strategy and I’m really looking forward to what this MEM integration shapes out to be in the future. He is certified in several technologies and is 1 of 63 people globally that is a recipient of the prestigious Citrix Technology Professional (CTP) award. A deep dive into the Citrix HDX FIDO2 and Windows Hello optimized virtual channel with virtual desktops and apps using USB, NFC, BLE, and built-in authenticators, Using Windows Hello FIDO2 capability with web browsers, Microsoft WVD, Teams, and native Windows apps for passwordless logins using your fingerprint or face, How to use Azure AD Conditional Access to add a Terms of Use EULA to Citrix Workspace, Microsoft WVD, Office 365, and SaaS apps, How to report on Microsoft Authenticator password-less phone sign-in & FIDO2 security key usage using Azure AD & Azure Monitor Log Analytics, How to use FIDO2 security keys remotely inside a virtual desktop session hundreds of miles away using Citrix HDX USB redirection and Microsoft Azure AD, Work from home reality and making positive IT decisions in response to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, Azure Active Directory as Identity Provider, Passwordless authentication with Microsoft Authenticator phone sign-in, Passwordless authentication with FIDO2 hardware security keys, VDI and DaaS is not turnkey…you still have a job. @Mikael, it is hard to say but AD FS is not a PaaS service while everything else with WVD is. I was giving a presentation that same afternoon and had to scramble to adjust my slides that day to reflect this in the interest of accuracy. Here is a diagram illustrating the 3 Azure Stack solutions and where WVD host pool workloads can go: Here are a few pictures I took of Azure Stack Hub using HPE hardware at Microsoft Ignite 2019. These containers can be stored using the same storage infrastructure you choose for FSLogix Profile and O365 Containers. Likewise, if you attempt to install the Citrix VDA and it detects it’s not in Azure, it will also throw an error message. While I did walk around like a tourist snapping pictures of leaves, I also spoke with a lot of people and you could tell there was a lot of excitement in the air. In addition, because Windows 10 i… This means it is identifying as a Windows Server operating system. @Jason apologies I wasn’t clear in my question – the scenario I’m considering is a customer who moves their desktops to WVD (so they are in Azure) and they have client server apps where the back end app/database servers are in their own DC, either on-prem or with another IaaS provider but not in Azure. That is correct. Summary. We're currently working on Microsoft Intune support. For accessing Server OS (Windows Server 2012 R2 and newer desktops and apps) via WVD, you will still need RDS CALs with active Software Assurance (SA). Any device, as shown below at Ignite 2019, should be a hint that parity is coming no matter the Windows 10 form factor or system state (persistent vs. non-persistent) hopefully. There were always pros and cons with the approach. We recommend using the latest version for improved performance and reliability. Learn how to apply your license to a deployment at the Virtual Desktop documentation. WVD Custom Image – WVD RD Agent is installed by default on Azure Windows 10 Multi-user and Enterprise Templates – WVD master image. When Windows Virtual Desktop was announced, VMware and Microsoft worked together to extend the functionality of Windows Virtual Desktop to Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure: This collaboration makes VMware an approved Windows Virtual Desktop provider, enabling customers to have access to a modern, cloud-native platform that de… Notice the red boxes I’ve placed over the words legacy vs. modern, that should tell you all you need to know about the future of your EUC environment: You are eligible to access FSLogix Profile Container, Office 365 Container (which is a sub-feature of Profile Container), Application Masking, and Java Redirection tools if you have one of the following licenses: Many of us have used FSLogix for years for VDI environments prior to Microsoft acquiring the solution. 5. Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session is a virtual edition of Windows 10 Enterprise. So why am I giving you a brief history of RDS, RDmi, and the evolution to WVD? I am hoping in time we will see the Windows core engineering team add a credential provider for both Windows desktop and server OSes where the needs of SSO over a remoting protocol is considered. Just not on your hypervisor and hardware of choice. I know all about it!”. This is a really great time for EUC with all this alignment happening. Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session is currently supported to be hybrid Azure AD-joined. If yours hasn’t already, it will at some point soon so it’s in your best interest to begin understanding these technologies now so you are better prepared for the future, either at your current company or some company you may be working at in the future. You must use Azure Stack Hub which is designed for “disconnected” scenarios when talking to Azure cloud may be a challenge on low-bandwidth. The image can be deployed above as shown in your WVD tenant creation. One of the differences is that this operating system (OS) reports the ProductType as having a value of 3, the same value as Windows Server. When it comes to Passwordless with Authenticator app and FIDO2 key, I assume your screenshots appear when you access the WVD portal and gets a list of available apps. Hi, I have few questions related to WVD. How Antivirus definitions gets updated in Non persistent VDIs , considering Antivirus Console is On Prem? It cannot be run on-prem, it’s a PaaS offering. B2B accounts is a great ask. Most virtualized environments are configured by default to prevent users from installing additional apps to their profiles. It’s free for most everyone and works extremely well so use it. Microsoft moved to the next phase and announce the public preview of Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop.Now, all customers can access this service— the only service that delivers simplified management, a multi-session Windows 10 experience, optimizations for Office 365 ProPlus, and support for Windows Server Remote Desktop … The point is, if you see or hear any of the terms “multi-session”, “multi-user”, or “enterprise for virtual desktops” used with Windows 10 Enterprise, don’t worry it’s the same thing and referring to this new OS flavor that can pile on as many concurrent users as you wish.
