Cloud Insights from Brad Anderson, Corporate Vice President, Windows Server & System Center
At TechEd this week, I had the privilege to announce the release of Microsoft Azure RemoteApp preview, a new service from Microsoft that provides Windows applications from a finished Azure service.
Since the launch of the preview, the team also enabled an Azure RemoteApp demo that allows you to experience the end-user aspects of the service on your choice of iOS, MacOS, or Windows devices in less than 5 clicks.
There are already thousands of unique users testing the service, and the team is working hard to increase the capacity. The demand has been so high that it is, understandably, taking us time to go through all the approvals. But don’t worry – we’ll get to everyone (we already have thousands of cores allocated to supporting this preview).
To experience the demo for yourself, click here. Also, to read more about the demo experience, the RDS team has written a detailed post about the preview.
Give it a try and let us know what you think!
Azure RemoteApp helps employees stay productive anywhere, and on a variety of devices - Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, or Android. Your company’s applications run on Windows Server in the Azure cloud, where they’re easier to scale and update. Users can access
their applications remotely from their Internet-connected laptop, tablet, or phone. While appearing to run on the users' local device, the applications are centralized on Azure’s protected, reliable platform.
Azure RemoteApp combines Windows application experiences with the powerful capabilities of Remote Desktop Services on Microsoft Azure – the cloud for modern business
