  2. Add Azure AD support for Windows 10 multi-session

    Instead of requiring AD joined VMs, add Azure AD (AAD) support for Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session. This helps us reduce costs by not requiring a DC or AAD DS.

  5. UDP support

    Microsoft spent years explaining how useful is UDP transport for protocol performance. WVD outbound connections don't support UDP and the performance difference is obvious.

    Can the WVD team post some performance data with the new parallel RDP stack?

  6. Provide settings templates for Windows 10 multisession hosts.

    The list of recommended tunings and configurations for a Windows 10 multisession WVD is quite logn and complex. Provide som form of settings templates with all recommended tunings for Windows 10 multisession. Could for example be in form of script/gpo/dsc that can quickly be applied on the WVD hosts for best performance and functions.

    Then you could start small rather than start with the current 128GB images

  8. Requesting Disconnected User state Functionality

    Request a user session manageability. If a user is in disconnected state or not log off completely and should be able to maintain the sessions. We should be able to do these scenarios:
    1. If the VM where the user session is disconnected and we then reboot the VM for maintenance or whatever is the reason. The disconnected session should be able to move to another VM within that same pool.
    2. Or if the VM where the user session is disconnected state and reboot the VM, it should be able to hold the session to keep in memory or…
