Hello,

We are thinking about start using Azure VDI for streaming our application to the users.

About that there are still a few things that i do not understund very well.

1st - Do we need an ADDS service? Or can we use Azure AD only?
2nd - About the licensings, how do we migrate our User CALs RDS to azure VDI?
3rd - The pricing for streaming applications is the same for multi-session desktops?
4th - We only want to use the app streaming so do we need the User CALs license or an ADDS? Or the licenses are different?

Thanks in advance,
Daniel Nascimento

    1. Azure AD is now supported but with some limitations - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-desktop/deploy-azure-ad-joined-vm
    2. If using Windows 10 as the OS to host your application then licensing is generally down through M365 per user licensing - https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/virtual-desktop/
    3. Yes, unless you are providing access to external customers which has a different license model - https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/virtual-desktop/
    4. You will need a license to access the service per user regardless. You may require an AD DS service depending on your needs but no CALs required for this.
