Your infrastructure needs the following things to support Windows Virtual Desktop:
- An Azure Active Directory
- A Windows Server Active Directory in sync with Azure Active Directory. This can be enabled through:
- Azure AD Connect
- Azure AD Domain Services
- An Azure subscription, containing a virtual network that either contains or is connected to the Windows Server Active Directory
For optimal performance, make sure your network meets the following requirements:
- Round-trip (RTT) latency from the client’s network to the Azure region where host pools have been deployed should be less than 150 ms.
- Network traffic may flow outside country/region borders when VMs that host desktops and apps connect to the management service.
- To optimize for network performance, we recommend that the session host’s VMs are collocated in the same Azure region as the management service.
