Azure Virtual Desktop allows administrators to deliver excellent Windows 10 experiences to users on any device. As AVD is hosted on the Azure cloud platform, it is comparatively easier to administrate than its on-premise predecessor, VDI, with many components such as load-balancing, storage and diagnostics managed by Azure.
How AppsAnywhere assists the delivery of apps available in Azure Virtual Desktop is a little different to how other technologies are integrated with AppsAnywhere. When the user launches an app with a AVD delivery method configured, they are guided through a series of steps, one of these steps presents a button to launch the AVD client, they are then guided through the process of accessing AVD and finding and launching their app.
