To quickly deploy and manage your virtualisation environment you must have an Azure account.
You can access Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 7 Enterprise desktops and apps at no additional cost if you have an eligible Windows or Microsoft 365 license. As well as free Extended Security Updates until January 2023 for your Windows 7 virtual desktops.
You can also get access desktops powered by Windows Server Remote Desktop Services desktops and apps at no additional cost if you are an eligible Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) Client Access License (CAL) customer.
You only need to pay for the virtual machines and storage you use, also take advantage of options such as one-year or three-year Azure Reserved Virtual Machine Instances, which can save you up to 72% compared to pay-as-you-go pricing. Reserved Virtual Machine Instances are flexible and can easily be exchanged or returned.
