Our Approach to EIL’ s Windows Virtual Desktop

Architectural Flow for EIL’ s WVD

  1. User launches RD client which connects to Azure AD, user signs in, and Azure AD returns token
  2. RD client presents token to Web Access, Broker queries DB to determine resources authorized for user
  3. User selects resource, RD client connects to Gateway
  4. Broker orchestrates connection from host agent to Gateway
  5. RDP traffic now flows between RD client and session host VM over connections 3 and 4

Full desktop vs. RemoteApp

You can assign your users access to remote apps if they don’t need full desktop access; or publish full desktop for power users.
