2020. Microsoft makes it easier to get started with Windows Virtual Desktops



Windows Virtual Desktop is Microsoft’s service for giving employees access to a virtualized desktop environment on Azure and that allows IT departments to host multiple Windows 10 sessions on the same hardware. Now Microsoft is launching a completely new management experience for this service that makes getting started significantly easier for admins. In addition to making the management experience easier, Microsoft is now also making it possible to use Microsoft Teams for video meetings in these virtual desktop environments, using a feature called ‘A/V redirection’ that allows users to connect their local audio and video hardware and virtual machines with low latency. It’ll take another month or so for this feature to roll out, though.




2011. Microsoft Hyper-V vs VMware: video



Recently, Microsoft marketing people use to create funny videos about the competitors. Recently the movie about GMail appeared and now - about the Microsoft's main competitor on the virtualization market - VMWare. The video shows Tad, the salesman at VMLimited, the company that stuck in the IT past. He goes to business meetings with clients in his cool minivan and tries to sell them his "limited" virtualization system (when the normal companies are already selling private clouds). That's the modern IT-humor: "While he says that he selling a cloud, he is actually selling nothing more than virtualization" - probably if Larry Ellison would hear it, his hair would stand on end.
