Windows 11 Preview Launches on Azure Virtual Desktop
#1        Windows 11 Preview Launches on Azure Virtual Desktop
Three Windows 11 images are now available for customers
Aug 20, 2021 12:28 GMT  ·  By Bogdan Popa  ·      Microsoft has just announced that a preview version of Windows 11 is available for Azure Virtual Desktop customers, therefore providing them with access to the latest operating system should they need to try it out in advance and run validation processes before the October launch.

Windows 11 is Microsoft’s next operating system for the desktop, and according to sources with knowledge of the matter, it should get the go-ahead in October, with members of the Windows Insider program to receive the final build a few weeks before.

But Microsoft wants to give everybody the opportunity to try out Windows 11, so the preview build of the OS is now available on Azure Virtual Desktop in three different images, namely Windows 11 Enterprise, Windows 11 Enterprise multi-session, and Windows 11 Enterprise multi-session + Microsoft 365 Apps.

Windows 11 ISOs also available
“For Windows 11, Azure Virtual Desktop still provides exclusive support for multi-session, an important option that helps you optimize costs by running multiple users on a single Azure virtual machine. You can use Trusted Launch (available in preview) to enable TPM 2.0 and secure boot as part of the VM configuration to take full advantage of the security capabilities in Windows 11,” Microsoft explains.

“The user experience with Azure Virtual Desktop is intended to be identical to the local PC experience. Some higher-end graphics effects, such as transparencies, animations, and rounded corners, may require using Azure Virtual Desktop with an Azure VM with the right GPU support.”

On a similar front, Microsoft has recently shipped a new testing build of the OS, as well as the first Windows 11 ISO images for insiders. These builds allow users to try out the latest improvements, including the refresh received by core apps, as well as the new OOBE experience that would be available when clean-installed the operating system.
