Does Azure virtual desktop in any way use dynamic IP?

Ben Jeong 81 Reputation points


I am wondering if my IP address will in any way change when accessing the virtual desktop.
When my on-premise network is provisioned to the Azure network, is there a scenario where I will be assigned a different IP, due to a Dynamic DNS in the Azure network(I don't know if there is one, please tell me) for I want a static IP that will not change in any way.
In my knowledge, there are two Azure provisioning centers in South Korea where I live, and I wonder if the connection will shift around in any given situation.


Is the Azure virtual desktop integrated with Akamai services in any way? (the CDN service, for example)

It would be helpful if I knew what kind of third party services are associated with the Azure virtual desktop.

Thank you very much.

    Hi @Ben Jeong ,

    1. You can achieve a static IP for WVD by routing the traffic through a Network Virtual Appliance.
    2. As for third party services associated with Azure virtual desktop, Akamai isn't associated. That being said please see WVD Partners page for more.
