Starter Virtual Desktops

Virtual Desktop Starter


The Login VSI WVD Starter Kit allows you to:

  • Run Login Enterprise appliance in Azure
  • Run the full Login Enterprise suite for 30 days
  • Continuously test applications
  • Test performance-to-cost ratio
  • Adapt tests to suit your environment
  • Define your own performance thresholds

IT organizations nowadays typically measure the performance of desktops in the cloud by reviewing infrastructure metrics like CPU, Memory and IOPS. However, in the cloud, these are not always available or give you the full picture as you are no longer managing the hardware. Our Starter Kit adds value by giving you the ability to test and report on performance from the end-user’s point of view, giving you the ultimate metric in performance.

The data provided in our free starter kit can help customers gain insights into the performance of applications within your SVD environment. Moving desktop and application workspaces to the cloud requires more visibility into how changes in cloud infrastructures impact the performance and availability of these resources.


Performing continuous tests where synthetic users logon, open apps, and test apps 24x7x365, enables enterprises to measure and monitor the health of their remote solutions, always staying ahead of availability and performance issues that may impact real end-users.

Organizations with “Windows 10 Enterprise E3 Per User” licenses or better (e.g. Windows 10 Enterprise E5 or Microsoft 365 E3, E5, F1, or Business) or RDS CALs can use Starter Virtual Desktops

Getting started with Starter Virtual Desktop


With the Starter Virtual Desktops General Available (GA), we wanted to provide a quick overview of the steps required to get your environment up and running.

Before I begin; however, I’d like to take a few moments to explain what Starter Virtual Desktops
is and how it can help you deploy and scale Windows and Office on Azure in minutes, with built-in security and compliance.

  • Infrastructure services like gateway, brokering, licensing, diagnostics are provided as a service in Azure. There’s no need to deploy and maintain any on-premises infrastructure.
  • Starter Virtual Desktops  can leverage Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) as the identity provider, allowing you to leverage additional security controls like multi-factor authentication (MFA) or conditional access.
  • Once a user is connected to Starter Virtual Desktop  service, access to Active Directory joined virtual machines (VMs) will be provided using Azure AD identities. In environments where Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) is implemented for single sign-on (SSO), the user won’t be prompted for credentials when connecting to the VM, providing a seamless sign-on experience.
  • Reverse connect technology means your destination VM doesn’t need any inbound ports to be opened. Even the default RDP port, TCP/3389, doesn’t have to be open. Instead, an agent creates an outbound connection using TCP/443 into the Starter Virtual Desktops  management plane. Azure is your reverse proxy for RDP traffic.
  • Virtual machines in Starter Virtual Desktops are not exposed to the Internet directly. They can run using a private IP address and run isolated from other workloads or even the Internet. (The reverse connect technology allows the VMs to be accessed.)
  • Starter Virtual Desktops  introduces Windows 10 multi-session, allowing you to offer a Windows 10 Enterprise experience where multiple users can log into the same Windows client VM simultaneously via RDP. (multi-session was historically only possible on Windows Server operating systems.)
