What we deliver

Our methodology ensures we deliver the right service the first time. We begin with an assessment of your overall requirements and infrastructure so we can ensure a fit for purpose deployment, delivered by certified consultants and project managers. We will deliver everything required including:

  • Images for Windows 10 Enterprise single session and multi-session VMs, including Microsoft Office 365 desktop apps, Microsoft Edge browser and Microsoft FSLogix profile management
  • Storage, security and networking requirements
  • Windows VM update management
  • VM auto-scaling and power management for cost-saving


After we have ensured AVD is fit for purpose, a small scale PoC is usually the first step to ensure AVD functions as expected

A production rollout or migration of existing desktops to the cloud

Using third party toolsets to ensure high-availability and correct capacity

Reduce costs by scaling up and down on-demand to provide just enough capacity

Deploy and manage the environment as an end-to-end service provided by Insentra
