What is Azure Virtual Desktop:
Azure Virtual Desktop is a cloud service that provides application and desktop virtualization hosted on Microsoft’s cloud. It allows users to access their Windows desktops and applications from any device and location.

Benefits of Azure Virtual Desktop:
Azure Virtual Desktop has many benefits, such as: simplicity, security, cost-effectiveness, scalability, flexibility, and sustainability. It enables users to work from anywhere, use their own devices, reduce hardware and licensing costs, adjust the number of virtual machines according to demand, and lower the environmental impact of e-waste.

Licensing and prerequisites for Azure Virtual Desktop:
Azure Virtual Desktop requires a Microsoft subscription, an identity provider (Azure Active Directory and Active Directory), an operating system license, a network connectivity to Microsoft cloud URLs, and a remote desktop client. Users with Office 365, Windows Enterprise, or Education licenses can use Azure Virtual Desktop for free, and only pay for the Azure infrastructure costs.

Architecture and types of Azure Virtual Desktop:
Azure Virtual Desktop has a PaaS model, where some components are managed by Microsoft (control plane) and some are managed by the customer (virtual machines, applications, Azure files, and Active Directory). The customer can choose between two types of virtual desktops: personal or pooled, and single session or multi session. Personal desktops are dedicated to one user, while pooled desktops are shared by multiple users. Single session desktops allow only one user per virtual machine, while multi session desktops allow more than one user per virtual machine
