    @Khushboo Kumari, Thanks for posting in Q&A. Microsoft provides several remote desktop solutions, including Remote Desktop Services (RDS) and Azure Virtual Desktop (formerly known as Windows Virtual Desktop). RDS is a platform for building virtualization solutions that can deliver individual virtualized applications, provide secure mobile and remote desktop access, and allow end-users to run their applications and desktops from the cloud. RDS offers deployment flexibility, cost efficiency, and extensibility through a variety of deployment options, including on-premises deployments with Windows Server 2016, cloud deployments with Microsoft Azure, and partner solutions.

    Azure Virtual Desktop is a desktop and app virtualization service that runs on the cloud. It allows you to set up a multi-session Windows 11 or Windows 10 deployment that delivers a full Windows experience with scalability, present Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise, optimize it to run in multi-user virtual scenarios, bring your existing Remote Desktop Services (RDS) and Windows Server desktops and apps to any computer, virtualize both desktops and apps, and manage desktops and apps from different Windows and Windows Server operating systems with a unified management experience.

    As for the advantages and disadvantages of these solutions, RDS provides cost efficiency, deployment flexibility, and extensibility, but it requires more management and maintenance compared to Azure Virtual Desktop. Azure Virtual Desktop, on the other hand, provides a more scalable and managed solution, but it can be more expensive than RDS.

    Regarding Windows 365, it is a cloud-based service that allows you to stream Windows 10 or Windows 11 to any device. It provides a full Windows experience, including Microsoft 365 Apps, and allows you to access your desktop and apps from anywhere. Compared to other VDI solutions, Windows 365 provides a simpler and more streamlined experience for end-users, with less management and maintenance required.
