Your alternative to CITRIX

Best virtual desktop experience on Azure

Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) is a virtual desktop infrastructure solution built on the latest Windows platform and designed specifically for the Microsoft Azure Cloud. Uncompromisingly modern and without OnPremises legacy, Microsoft has continued to expand the domain traditionally occupied by Citrix, offering itself as the much stronger and more modern alternative. All employees can access AVD targeted applications and desktops from anywhere in the world. This ensures secure and reliable access to the customer's business environment while being cost-effective and less time-consuming. Best of all, if your company already has a Microsoft 365 E3 or E5 license, your company is qualified to use AVD.

On demand Cloud Workplace

Azure Virtual Desktop is particularly suitable for deploying workplaces to users who are not already equipped with a Modern Workplace. In particular, external service providers, temporary employees, replacement workstations during outages, or rapid integration of acquisitions can be significantly accelerated and simplified with AVD without compromising the security and operation of the Microsoft 365 Modern Infrastructure.

On demand Legacy Apps

When moving to a Modern Workplace architecture with Windows and cloud management, deploying legacy applications or complex, on premises client-server applications often involves effort and cost. Azure Virtual Desktop can be a secure and efficient methodology here as an alternative deployment technology for these applications. This can result in significant cost savings, precisely because it also eliminates the need for additional bridging technologies such as VPN, for example.

On demand Priviledged Access

In the future, glueckkanja-gab can provide you with a standardized and highly automated Azure Virtual Desktop Infrastructure that implements our blueprint for building a privileged access strategy. This environment, with several optional components, can secure and make fully auditable access to administrative and privileged resources and systems in the enterprise using state-of-the-art techniques.
