Windows Virtual Desktop​ PoC (Proof of Concept)

Review how the hype around Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) comes to reality for your organisation with a Silversands PoC

Silversands consultants will work with you to deploy a WVD PoC based on the 2020 Spring release. This provides access to a remote desktop / apps via remote desktop clients / web browser. Consequently, the PoC provides an opportunity to compare WVD against your existing solution/s before taking the decision to roll it out.

What is Windows Virtual Desktop?

Windows Virtual Desktop provides a secure Windows 10 desktop or RemoteApp, remotely or internally. Very often it delivers a cost saving when compared to on premises RDS or a Citrix solution.


  • High availability service with no servers to manage or maintain.
  • The only service that can provide a true Windows 10 desktop experience using Windows 10 multi-session.
  • Windows 7 is a supported OS and relocating any remaining Windows 7 machines to WVD will give you 3 years of extended support.
  • Support for Office 365 ProPlus.
  • User profile redirection and storage to Azure Files, or the new Azure NetApp Files, using FSLogix profile containers.
  • Session host scaling to help manage costs.
  • Publishing of both full session desktops and specific Remote Apps
  • New 2020 Spring release of WVD now available
