Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop Working Group

The Azure Virtual Desktop initiative is an exciting transformational project to develop and deploy a virtual desktop for use by individuals in UMB schools and departments. 

The virtual computing infrastructure would be managed and supported by the cloud provider (Microsoft) which would reduce support required of UMB IT personnel, provide enhanced security, and help keep the infrastructure and computing applications up-to-date and contemporary.  As AVD gets deployed throughout the University community, UMB schools and departments will have the opportunity to purchase less expensive computer desktops/laptops for employees.
