Success with Enterprise Mobility: Azure RemoteApp
Azure RemoteApp was one of those pieces that was a long time coming, and today it is one of the coolest things we offer the IT community – and I believe it will play a big role in any mobility strategy in the future.
The philosophy behind Azure RemoteApp is simple: There are a lot of scenarios and industries where an app-based approach is more efficient than desktops (to see some of the amazing functionality and uses cases for desktop virtualization, see my post from last week here).
It is quite common for me to hear a customer say, “We are going to go 100% VDI” but when I check back their deployment ends up being ~20% and 80% remote applications. VDI has become the term used for all server-based computing, and is used to describe both application and desktop remoting.
What I am hearing a lot lately is that organizations want to use more app and desktop remoting solutions, but they don’t want to make the large up-front CAPEX expenditures and maintain the necessary farm of servers. The desire to use more remoting solutions is primarily being driven by the need to enable the long tail of internal Windows applications the company relies on to a growing number of different mobile device platforms. If this sounds familiar, then we have a great solution for you: Azure RemoteApp.
