5 benefits of AVD remote app streaming

As your business grows, it’s important for you to be able to share resources between users quickly, simply, and securely. A virtual desktop remote app streaming service will allow your employees to access the company’s applications from anywhere in the world.

With Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) remote app streaming, you can run any desktop app on your on-premises or Azure virtual machine with an internet connection. The result is that you can save money and increase productivity by leveraging the power and security of the cloud.

What is Azure Virtual Desktop remote app streaming?

AVD remote app streaming allows you to establish a remote connection between your on-premises desktop and Azure virtual machines. The AVD remote app streaming feature allows you to access and use the full functionality of an application on one device without having to install it on every device individually. This is particularly useful if you need to access a sensitive document or run an application with restricted functionality.

You can use AVD with your existing applications, services, and workloads that are compatible with the Azure RemoteApp program. This allows you to access and control your existing applications and desktops from one location.

The benefits of AVD remote app streaming

Reduce costs across the board

With AVD remote app streaming, you’re able to access all of your data, files, and applications from any device with an internet connection, which can help you save time and money when it comes to IT costs. 

You can also reduce costs related to IT infrastructure, servers, and software licenses. AVD remote app streaming will help your business save time by reducing the amount of hardware needed in the data centre.

AVD remote app streaming also reduces costs by eliminating hardware costs, and third-party software installation fees.

Install the app just once

Another advantage of using remote app streaming is that you do not have to install software on each and every user device, which allows for a more seamless user experience. This also helps to reduce costs and maintenance costs associated with managing software licenses.

Your users can access apps from any location or device by launching in the cloud. It’s a fast, simple way to get started with testing and learning new applications before deploying them on-premises. Also, regardless if your users’ devices are Android, iOS, Windows, or any other platform, they can run your app as long as they have AVD RemoteApp installed and enabled. 

You can also enable user-controlled app sharing so your people can use different devices and configurations without having to manually create each configuration themselves. This gives you more flexibility and control when it comes to managing your environment.

No software needed on user devices

You can access your virtual machine (VMs) securely from any Internet-connected device with a browser or an app. AVD remote app streaming is an easy and secure way for IT departments to support BYOD (bring your own device) initiatives.

Remote app streaming enables employees to access applications from virtually anywhere. Whether they’re working from home or travelling abroad, it’s possible for remote employees to continue their workday without having to install an application locally on their computer.


Easy application access

With AVD, the client application runs directly on your computer or device and connects to the same virtual machine that your remote users are using, allowing you to work wherever you want, whether it be at home, in the office, or on the go. Once installed on your device, you can connect to your virtual desktop using any of your approved devices. 

You can start working right away by accessing your computer’s screen and keyboard, complete with all of your applications and settings.

Enhanced security and secure connections

When using remote apps, it’s important to ensure that all connections are secure. The connection is established using a private and personal certificate that can only be accessed by the user. AVD provides a secure connection to support remote app streaming, which minimises the risk of data theft or other security threats.

AVD remote app streaming ensures your data remains encrypted while traveling between your device and the server. This helps protect your information from being stolen or malicious actors taking action while you are away from your home or office.
