Today, everything is possible – virtually.

The world has changed irrevocably, and so has the way we do business. Even before Covid-19, employees were no longer sitting in an office from 9 – 5, using only one device or always working from secure locations. As a result, many companies were starting to adopt virtualisation for their workforce. However, they discovered that server-based virtualisation had its limitations and could not support a true modern desktop. Today, the need for a managed virtual desktop is more important than ever.

Managed Windows Virtual Desktop powered by Microsoft solves remote user connectivity, compatibility, security and application management challenges by moving the user workspace to a secure Windows Virtual Desktop on Microsoft Azure.

Administrators no longer need to worry about brokers, gateways, and web servers; all this complexity is replaced by one overarching service managed by Inobits, the service arm of Netsurit.

Netsurit’s Managed Windows Virtual Desktop is a comprehensive desktop and app virtualisation service running on Microsoft Azure. It is the only virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) that delivers simplified management, multi-session Windows 10, optimizations for Office, and support for Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environments. With WVD, your employees can access any remote app on any device, while you can maintain central management and security of your users’ desktops.

Windows Virtual Desktop puts you in control by:

Providing seamless multi-user Windows 10
experience that’s highly scalable & always up to date.
Deploying and scaling in minutes. WVD allows you to manage users and security via a unified administrative interface in the Azure Portal
Supporting any end-user device platform including Windows, Android, Mac, iOS, and HTML 5.

It’s time to adopt a Managed Windows Virtual Desktop when:

You are using Remote Desktop Services (RDS) and want to simplify licensing and reduce costs.

You are a medical biller or transcriptionist who wants your electronic health record (EHR) app in a secure cloud environment, with all sensitive patient data remaining in the cloud at all times

You have a seasonal workforce who needs access to a secure, modern, up to date Windows 10 experience in the cloud.
You are a warehouse worker who wants to access desktop shipping and inventory apps from your iOS or Android devices.
You are medical staff who want to access electronic health apps from low cost handheld devices while mobile or away from your central workstation.
You are a business owner or accountant who wants to access accounting software from home or mobile device while it remains secure in a central location.

Scenarios For Windows Virtual Desktop

← Branch Offices

Windows 7 Compatibility →

For apps that require Windows 7, run them on WVD, access them from Windows 10.

Replace expensive on- prem RDS/VDI with a cloud service that scales infinitely, requires no upfront investment or hardware.

← Remote Desktop Services/VDI Replacement

Application Delivery →

Deploy from WVD as RemoteApps; one point configure and update; infinite scalability.
