Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD).

Optimise software costs and maintain compliance with Software Asset Management.

The modern working landscape has transformed in recent years. Azure Virtual Desktop enables you to build a flexible, scalable and user-friendly virtual environment that supports modern ways of working. After experiencing the productivity and efficiency benefits of remote and hybrid work, many organisations have kept these agile workplace models. However, a hybrid workplace shouldn’t make life difficult for IT teams. AVD (formerly Windows Virtual Desktop) is a cloud-based virtual environment that’s easy to manage, secure and deploy. Providing seamless user experiences, it enables users to securely access their workspace from any device, any location, any time.

848 is a cloud-first company and Microsoft Gold Partner with Microsoft Certified staff specialising in Azure. We have earned the Azure Virtual Desktop Advanced Specialisation, validating our expertise in securing, scaling and deploying Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) in Azure. Our team of remote desktop and virtualisation specialists are certified to deliver virtual cloud environments in line with Microsoft’s highest technical standards. Empower employees in the modern hybrid workplace with a scalable, secure and user-friendly environment underpinned by the cloud.
