Take a look at the just announced capability to run Azure Virtual Desktop for Azure Stack HCI on premises, as well as a roundup of what's new in hybrid management across platforms with Azure Arc. Azure Virtual Desktop, formerly known as Windows Virtual Desktop, used to be an all or nothing decision in order to run your VMs from the Azure cloud. Now you can use Azure, Azure Stack HCI, and use Windows 10 multi-session in a hybrid environment where you get the full Windows experience along with cost efficiency. Matt McSpirit, Senior Program Manager for Microsoft Azure, joins Jeremy Chapman to share the latest Azure hybrid updates:
