Make WVD session controller service availble in the South Africa North DC.
Operating from South Africa I created a test VM on Windows Virtual Desktop and the response was not great considering that it was deployed it in South Africa North DC. The best RTT was measured at 226 ms whereby 150 ms or less is required for an acceptable experience. This was mainly due to the session controller service being managed from a US DC.
Yes please setup RD Broker in South Africa other the WVD is unusable with a RTT of >300ms from Mauritius though the latency on VPN is around 50ms.
Hi all, has this received any feedback from Microsoft? Such awesome tech but can't be used in SA

Please make session controller available in South Africa. Current workaround is VPN and then RDP to the Virtual Desktop but this is not ideal.
definitely needed in SA, please consider and action....
Agreed, need local availability to resolve high latency issues.

We require a better RTT for this to work better for us, please?
