      Providing VDI in azure should be the last step of a journey into the cloud. Its very easy to provision a RDS/VDI infrastructure in Azure but a lot of companies forget about the backend infrastructure that people want to connect too. Moving desktops away from their localised un-metered network infrastructure causes no end of problems.

      Done correctly as part of a wider transformation project including looking at critical services and service latency tolerance its a great solution that removes a lot of on-premises hardware requirements.

      Microsoft need to seriously look at Windows 10 as many aspects of the OS are clearly not designed with VDI and typical deployments in mind. Start menu, FTA's,OneDrive, Teams app to name but a few are a nightmare to design solutions for whether its deployed natively, with Citrix Virtual Desktops or VMware Horizon View. the RDP protocol while coming on leaps and bounds over the last few years still lags way behind for control and user experience and performance tweaks compared to VMware's Blast protocol or Citrix's HDX but some companies go with the least layers or cheapest win's then RDP will do the job.
