So, it depends on how we want to use the term persistent. If we’re using it the way I use it which might be wrong, it is persistent in that if you go on there and set the background to a picture of your kids and you go away and log in a week later, it’s still a picture of your kids. So it is
Can we move from a traditional Microsoft Client Server environment to Windows Server?
Well yes. We do a lot of assessments here. They’re easy to price, we tell you what it costs and if it takes us too long that’s our fault. But people can jump in without being afraid that we’ll pull the covers back and find a massive rat’s nest that’s going to cost $30K to find out what the problem
Can we get rid of our on-premise domain controllers and move to Azure Domain Services?
Why yes you can and in fact that is another reason I say this could be a lot of company’s big foray into Azure. If you’re coming from Microsoft 365 and let’s say you’ve been in that eco-system for a while, maybe you’ve made it this far and never had a domain controller. No problem. We still use, as
Does WVD support MAC OS, either Virtual Mac OS or Remote Mac OS?
It depends. If you’re saying on the hosted side, clearly not, because it’s Windows virtual desktop, not anybody else’s. So, if you want to know what clients can access your Windows desktops, then it’s yes to all of them. There’s a Windows, a Mac and a Lennox desktop client. There’s an Android and
Students need to connect with both Windows and Mac computer Labs remotely. How do we do this?
Now, this is a way edge case – now you can with VDS. Now VDS does more than WVD the Net-app tool. It actually runs in any cloud, on-premise and it also runs other operating systems. You could potentially, I’ve never done this its just off the top of my head, we could possibly set you up with a VDS
Is VDS needed for WVD? And if I have WVD, can I add VDS?
The answer to number one is no. VDS is completely optional, not required and nearly everything I talk about in the presentation is available to you without VDS. VDS enables some really cool functionality that is much more difficult and more involved to do on your own. VDS by itself does not do
Will an Office 365 outage take out WVD?
So an Office 365 outage, specifically, would not affect WVD. There is a giant asterisk next to that which is, the most recent outages were Azure Active Directory outages specifically and those would have taken out normal URL access to the WVD service. Now there are other ways, we can set up other
How do we handle printers and scanners with WVD?
Printing and scanning is basically the same as it has always been. As long as your printer drivers aren’t weird, we can make it work. Microsoft has launched a new service this year that is not fully out yet. They basically launched their own cloud printing service, kind of like Google used to have.
With WVD, how do we connect to an on-premise environment?
So two ways. The most popular way to do it is go ahead and have a site to site VPN between Azure and your local environment. That works fine unless you have a low latency requirement in your line of business applications. In that case, now we look at something called global file cache, which is a
