Citrix announces VDI support on Windows Azure

You can now run VDI on Windows Azure with Citrix. Think of all the possibilities – Desktop-as-a-Service, your personal desktop on the cloud, accessible anytime, anywhere.

Citrix has announced that version 7 of its Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) product XenDesktop can now be deployed on a Windows Azure virtual machine. This is now possible because Microsoft has made Remote Desktop Services (RDS) Subscriber Access Licensing (SAL) available on Azure, paving the way to install XenDesktop on a VM running on Azure.

In order to support this announcement, Citrix published two new Design Guides detailing how to design a VDI environment running on Windows Azure.
